It should come as no surprise to see 80- and 90-degree-plus days in the foreseeable future. This spring was one of the most temperate (although also the wettest) in recent memory, making the sudden jump in June a little more jarring than usual, weather-wise. For so many Idaho dwellers—both native and transplanted—the hot dry months of summer and the entertainment and recreation opportunities they bring are one of the best perks of living here. For them, this edition of Boise Weekly has much to offer.

On Page 19, Senior Staff Writer Harrison Berry outlines the impossibly fun events that are part of the sixth annual Pedal 4 the People, a celebration of Boise bicycle culture founded by Jimmy Hallyburton, also the founder of Boise Bicycle Project. You don't have to be a Tour de France trainee to enjoy P4P to the fullest.

Speaking of sweet cycling events, we here at Boise Weekly along with our friends at Bikes2Boards have revived one of our favorites: Bars and Stripes. It's an alleycat-style scavenger hunt kicking off at high noon on Saturday, July 1 from BWHQ (523 Broad St.), in which cyclists of all skill levels set off to parts unknown (participants get a manifest at registration) and complete tasks. Cost to participate is $20 if you pre-register before Saturday, June 24; $25 the day of the race. Registration begins on July 1 at 11 a.m. and it not only gets you in the race, it nets you a free backpack full of good stuff—but space is limited, so early registration is encouraged. You must be 21+ to enter. If you have questions, stop by BWHQ or call 208-344-2055 and ask for Jared.
