What's the riding like in Boise??

OK....

First things first... as I am looking at a job transfer...

HOW'S THE RIDING IN BOISE??

I guess I should also ask what areas we should look to live in.. neighborhoods, school districts for the kiddos etc.

But I figure I'd start our search with how the riding is. Priorities right??

Any input would be great. Pictures would be even more appreciated.

I can't resist... The riding in Boise sucks.























Get a few mile out of town and it improves greatly. Boise foothills have some good single track, lots of FS roads for summertime and the Owhyee's for cooler weather.

ID... thanks..

That's good stuff... Reminds me of some of the riding out here in Colorado... but only better believe it or not. Can't wait to get out there!

Any input on best places to live in the Boise area?? We've got 3 small kiddos!!

I'm a fan of the Boise Bench.
Meridian is quite family-friendly.
Where's your new job?

I'll be working out of the Boise Airport... so I'm thinking of looking more towards the north side of town east of Eagle.

I talked to the boys at Rekluse and they say 8th street has easy access to the hills... so maybe live close to that area as I'm used to having riding here in Colorado right out my door.
