For my family and friends that aren't from Boise, here is a little info. The Boise River runs through Boise, pretty much from one end to the other. On both sides of the river there are paved pathways called the Greenbelt that go right along the river. It is such a popular place to ride your bike and walk or run, that there is a yellow line down the middle and you stay on your side of the pathway unless you need to pass someone. There is even mileage markers showing how far you have gone.
We got on our bikes by an old firestation, and rode for a few miles. We then stopped and ate our picnic lunch. We then rode some more, crossed the river and rode back on the opposite side, rode for a while, then stopped at a playgroud. Then rode back to our van. In all, we rode about 7 miles, but it sure didn't seem that far.
Here is me, Keagan and Deker enjoying our lunch.
Bauer fell asleep at the very end of the ride.
