Yep, you read it right. Boise was wild. Not that we expected anything different. You see, we've been coming to Boise for 12 years now — that's nearly as long as the Tour de Fat has been in existence — so we feel we've made a pretty strong connection with our fine Idahoan hosts.
That feeling was reinforced today. Record-breaking crowds turned out for the parade; estimates put the number near 7,000. What's more, attendance only seemed to grow throughout the day, resulting in $55,000(ish) raised for our nonprofit partners, the Boise Bicycle Project, Southwest Idaho Mountain Biking Association and Treasure Valley Cycling Alliance.
We'll have more exact numbers — and a whole bunch of super photos to go along with them — next week. So check back on the blog to get the fine details and fine faces from the Boise Tour de Fat. For now we're off to the after-party at Mulligan's. Boy, it's been a long day ...
