    Mtn Biking for beginners Boise, ID

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    I've got a friend that has just been told by her doctor that she shouldn't be running anymore and she's interested in trying mountain biking. Is there a group I'm Boise that could introduce her to mountain biking?

    You can search for IMBA-affiliated clubs. It looks like there's one in Boise.

    - Gray Trek Madone 4.7 road bike, mystery crack in top tube repaired by Calfee, Bontrager Affinity RXL saddle
    - Red Trek 6000 mountain bike, Bontrager Evoke WSD saddle

    Gone but not forgotten:
    - Silver Trek 2000 road bike
    - Two awesome and worn out Juliana saddles

    While I don't consider myself a Mtn Biker, I am a travel the backroads rider. We have several friend who Mtn Bike. I want to say there are several different shops and groups that do intro to Mt. Biking. Have her go to the SWIMBA website (southwest idaho mountain bike association) or she can email me and I will put her in touch with my friend who is on the SWIMBA board. skyking@biketouringnews.com
    She can also come on some of our backroad rides - we usually do at least one a month.
