    What time to ride in Boise?

    So, I am curious to see what you all think is the best to go riding during the summer in Boise. I know that it stays hot out pretty late here, and hopefully hell has finally passed over (the past few weeks of 100+ ever single day) but it seems I can never get away from the heat. I have lived here for 10 years and it may just be me, but it feels worse than usual. Anyways: morning rides, midday rides, evening rides or night rides. Which do you prefer?

    Myself, midday. This is not much of a choice since I work during the night and sleep in til noon every day (here I am typing away at 3 AM). I am going to start waking up earlier! Better for riding if you ask me.

    Nobody cares what kind of bike you ride.

    Midnight!
    Charge your lights during the day.
    Ride until dawn.
    You may pass me on the uphill, but on the downhill, my gravity kicks in!

    I typically mix it up with either a pre-work ride (500 am) or middle of the night. You've got to be nuts to ride in the middle of the day.

    Mid Night

    Two times in that last 10 days I have ridden hulls-freeway-kestrel at midnight. It has been a blast. Saw a BIG CAT near the intersection of hulls and freeway. Definelty was not a fox, dog, sheep, house cat, deer, rabbit.............BIG CAT.

    Next week hoping to try and shuttle Scotts-Hulls-Freeway-Kestrel with fully charged batteries. Not sure which night yet.

    I may be getting addicted to this midnight ride thing.
    ride to work, work to live, live to ride.

    be careful of the midnight cat thing as you don't want to be on the late night dinner menu

    Noon time to 4pm is best, not a soul to be seen except "mad dogs and englishmen". And very few of them!
    Ride the bike.

    Amen, bro. My last solo night ride there were pictures of a huge cougar up in a tree just a quarter mile from where I was riding. Now, I use the buddy system, so there's plenty of food to go around..

    May your trails be narrow, crooked, lonesome and dangerous, leading to the most outrageous adventures. Paladin

    whenever I can get away long enough to ride. Usually 6:30pm. The 6-7 am road rides are nice though.
    Oh sh!+ just force upgraded to cat1. Now what?
    Best thing about an ultra marathon? I just get to ride my bike for X hours!
