Boy oh howdy ... Boise was big!

Tour de Fat Boise

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 ...

Cheers — Nic The Intern
