Cinch up your helmet and grease your chain: Boise Weekly’s annual bike race and scavenger hunt, Bars & Stripes, is back. Roll in at noon to BW headquarters at 523 Broad St. on Saturday, July 7, for a round-town race, beers and challenges. Stick around at the finish line for prizes and an after party. Pre-registration is $25 and is available until midnight on Wednesday, July 4. Or, you can sign up the day of the competition starting at noon on July 7 for $30. Riders looking to drink and cruise can join the drinking heat, which crosses the starting line at 1 p.m. Speed demons can select “racer” on the registration form, and depart at 2 p.m. Each heat will have first place winners for men and women. All racers get swag bags at check-in, and official Bars & Stripes t-shirts will be ordered after the race.

I want to race. Now what do I do?

To pre-register, fill out this form and either email it to or drop off a hard copy at the Boise Weekly office at 523 Broad Street. If the door is locked, please use the mail slot. Both the pre-registration form and payment must be submitted by midnight on Wednesday, July 4. Alternately, you can register on the day of the race at noon at Boise Weekly. We will post an update on Friday, July 6, to notify potential racers if all of the slots have been filled.


Pay your registration fee here. The pre-registration cost is $25. Please enter "Bars & Stripes" in the account number field, and proceed directly to filling out your credit card information. You can ignore the rest of the "Order Summary" and "Billing Information" sections.
