    Want good riding karma? w/ wife porn....

    Help my wife and I plan some rides for late March '07....Boise area. It's not bringing bikes hoping to ride while we visit relatives, it's visiting relatives inbetween rides. We're from Salem, Oregon and looking for great singletrack, approx. 10 - 20 mile loops or out and back rides. Technical, steep, lungbusters, stunts, we love it all.

    If someone could refer me to a reliable Boise shop that has maps, among other things, that would be great too.

    I've never ridden in Idaho so help me with equipment prep. I know it varies, but how long does the snow usually stick around? A little is fine but I'd prefer to avoid consistent hike-a-bikes. I suppose the usual water pack & tools, layers for all weather conditions, etc. are the requisite, anything special the area likes a rider to carry with them?

    Probably looking to drive no more than 2hrs. from Boise to find a trailhead. Rides with creeks/lakes/rivers/ponds etc. are good too as we'll have our trusty trail dog busting arse with us and she likes to cool off, a lot.

    Thanks in advance!

    very limited riding in boise in March. just foothill trails, and 1/2 of those will be sloppy muddy.

    and, most of your classic idaho rides will be under snow.

    wait 'til june to be safe and have the most options and best condition. mid june is your best bet, imo.

    At the rate we aren't receiving snow, you'll be able to ride everywhere!!!

    Oh...I occasionally ride with the Hammergel flask full of single malt.

    You mean like shots of a bare, Ti Seven frame? Or a Titus Exogrid? Sorry, but one man's porn is another man's yawn...

    clever marketing, how else would I get your attention? "Porn" in the title with the little camera icon is like price roll back day at Walmart!

    Haven't yet convinced mrs. skinnyhippy that online porno is good way to augment our income. But I think I'm wearing her down...

    also thanks people for reading and giving up some info, also thanks for all the pm's and volunteer guiding. gonna be good riding!

    I, for one...

    ..wouldn't bust out my credit card for any more pics of the Santa Cruz, but I'm the exception (I ride cheap-o bikes!)

    This weather we're having right now is downright balmy and tropical. I agree with Visi - at this rate we'll all be riding snowless through winter into March. In the meanwhile, I think I'm with impdude, head out to the 2O (Owyhee County for our guest) when it's time to climb back on the steed.

    I never stop riding...weather doesn't deter me. Laziness and burnout...well that is another matter.

    Also, I am glad the content of the pictures included a Santa Cruz...

    bump....

    We're arriving 03/22/2007, late.

    Best ride day for us is Saturday the 24th. Any guide help is greatly appreciated and rewarded with beer.

    How is the snowpack?

    Temps according to Weather.com in the valley this week will range from low 60s to mid 70s. Next week it's looking to range from low 70s on Monday to high 50s/low 60s the rest of the week and no forecast for moisture. Trails around Table Rock, Military Reserve and Camel's Back/8th Street should be pretty darn good. Owyhees should be good too.

    IOW....you'll be good to go when you get here.

    Have fun!

    you asked about shops. REI (milwaukee and Emerald) has the ridges to rivers map which will show you the foothills trails. For Owhyee's look on this forum as there are some maps. The people that posted the maps know the trails. I'll be in portland area that weekend so I can't help with guiding.

    Worst case scenario, in Boise, head north on 8th street. it will turn to dirt and then there will be a parking lot. follow any trail from there and head up. you can go up till you hit mud then turn. if you're going down, you'll eventually end up back in town.

    Mud here is death to trails. Unlike OR, if you ride on muddy trails, they erode and turn into a big mess. Most trails are pretty dry but if you ride high enough, turn around when you hit mud.
    Oh sh!+ just force upgraded to cat1. Now what?

    If you are too cheap to shell out $5 for a map, you can print one out here:
    http://www.cityofboise.org/parks/R2R...MapR2RFull.pdf

    Nowhere near as nice as the real map, but will do in a pinch.

    There are also big maps on the kiosks at....
    * Table Rock trailhead (behind the Bishop's House).
    * At least two in Military Reserve. The first one at the parking lot where Mtn. Cove Road goes from pavement to dirt and the second one at the bigger dirt parking lot up the road on your right hand side.
    * One in the dirt parking lot next to the Foothills Learning Center right off of 8th Street behind Camel's Back. I *think* there is a map right on the edge of Camel's Back Park too ain't there??? Oh yeah...there is another one at the parking lot off of 8th street where it's still pavement and it's where the Owl's Roost trail starts.
    * One in the giant dirt parking lot with the outhouse for Corral's off of Bogus Basin Road.
