Coming to Boise for 4 days over Veterans Day weekend in November to check out Boise State. Thinking about renting bikes and going out to ride one day. Any advice on where to ride and where to rent quality bikes would be appreciated.

I'm also interesed in ANY advice you may have about the best places to eat, stay, visit on day trips. Feel free to throw in any info, both the good and bad, about Boise State while you're at it :thumbsup: Thanks!!

I believe Idaho Mountain Touring rents bikes. Otherwise, Otherwise, any of the other shops would most likely be able to provide you a demo. Check World Cycles on State, Joyride on 13th or Georges on Front St. They are all good shops and friendly.

Lot's of places to stay, you might check out the Modern Hotel which is very close to the downtown bikes shops & BSU & has a great bar with a bit of hipster vibe.

The trails are easily accessible from all the above locations: check out Ridge to Rivers Trail System for trail info. Starting from Military Reserve Park or Camel's Park will give you access to the network.

Joyride rents "demos" bikes for $30-40 a day. Hopefully the weather around here will hold up....the trails are in great shape right now! Places to eat: WillowCreek is really good. Make sure you either get tickets from the web or I would wait until literally 30 minutes before kick-off...prices really drop! Another solid place to eat downtown is Cottonwood...little expensive but high quality. Most importantly...post on the board when you are here and people will show you around the trails!

Make sure you stay down town. The Modern hotel is a hip renovated motel with a cool little bar, Hotel 43 is a swanky place with a great bar and steakhouse, the grove hotel is in the hart of downtown and is attached to the hockey arena ( might be a game when you visit. And the Down Town Hampton is across the street in the hart of downtown and probably the best bang for the buck. For breakfast eat at Goldys. For great casual Lunch or dinner try Bittercreek, Bardenay, or Fork. Fancy dinner try Berryhill, Chandlers or Cottenwood. For coffee try Java or Big City. Willowcreek is yummy too but not down town. After a mountain bike ride you can stop at Parilla or Hyde Park Pub for a drink and food. There are a ton of other great resturants in and around The city all bikeable from the trails. Boise's a great place, you can Mtn bike from your door step and ski, fish, kayak, golf, you name it.
All in the same day.
Idaho Mountain Touring, Joyride, George's and World Cycle are all great shops downtown. See who has the best bike to demo.
Enjoy your visit!
