BOISE, Idaho — The 17th annual Bike Week kicked off Sunday in Boise with a Mother's Day group ride to the Idaho Botanical Garden.

Boise Bike Week is a celebration of cycling in all forms. It takes place in the middle of National Bike Month and recognizes National Bike to Work Day on Friday, May 18.

There is something for everyone during the week-long event, starting with a Mothers Day Ride and Brunch on Sunday and a Commuter Kick Off Celebration on Monday at Boise City Hall.

The official event wraps up on Friday, May 17, with a block party on State Street. There will be food trucks, live music, a bike rodeo, and other activities, and there will be a State Street bus service going every 15 minutes to make it easy to get to and from the party.
