Cyclists gear up for Bogus Basin Hill Climb

In Boise Aug. 28

George's Cycling and Fitness of Boise is presenting the 38th annual Bogus Basin Hill Climb Saturday, Aug. 28 starting at 9:30 a.m. with a mass start at Highland Elementary School on Bogus Basin Road.

Up to 500 cyclists will be accepted for the 14.5-mile ascent up Bogus Basin Road—a tough cookie of a ride that covers about a 3,500-foot elevation gain. No prizes are awarded—just bragging rights.

All riders must complete the course in three hours for the Competitive Men's/Women's classes, and four hours for the Non-Competitive "Mike's Army" Touring Category led by race director Mike Cooley.

Idaho Nordic is giving away two membership primes—to the first female and male reaching the halfway points in Competitive Classes (18-and-under, 19-29, 30-34, 30-39 women, 35-39, 40-44, 40-49 women, 45-49, 50-59 and 60-plus).

Registration, online only, is at through midnight, Aug. 27. There are no refunds on registration. And you can't register on Race Day.

All of the packet pickup is Saturday, Aug. 28 from 7:30-9 a.m. at Highland Elementary. Park on Bogus Basin Road, Curling Drive, Cartwright Road or the LDS Church parking lot at Cartwright and Bogus Basin roads. Entry fee includes a T-shirt and post-ride refreshments.

Questions, call Mike Cooley at George's (208) 343-3782 or  HYPERLINK, or Dave Landis (208) 860-5606.
