About the Boise Ridge Riders
The BRR have also hosted an annual Hair of the Dog Hare Scambles type event on new year's day since 1984.The BRR have hosted and currently host other events. In the past, the BRR have hosted a number of Hare Scrambles, Club Rides, and Fun Days type events. The BRR also do a number of volunteer projects for the US Forest Service (USFS) and the Idaho State Department of Lands by clearing trails, sponsoring grants, rebuilding trails, and mapping trails using GIS equipment. Currently, the BRR are working in cooperation with the USFS Idaho City Ranger District on the Boise Basin Trails Plan.
The BRR are also members of other organizations, for example, The Blue Ribbon Coalition. The BRR have donated money raised by events to the Blue Ribbon Coalition, Idaho Trail Machine Association, AMA, SIDRA and others to help reserve our right to ride on public land. We have also donated money to injured riders to help them with their medical costs.
The BRR meet monthly at 7:30pm MT on the second Tuesday of each month. The club meetings are currently held at Cobby's sandwich shop at 4348 Chinden Blvd in Boise, Idaho.
The BRR was founded by Dick Rockrohr, Chuck Coble and others and was organized out of Cycle Nuts and Bolts in Boise, Idaho in late 1983. The club was originally formed with approximately 15 members and has now grown to 65 members currently on the roster. The club's first events were in the spring of 1984 at Bogus Basin. In the fall of 1984 BRR hosted the first Idaho City 100.
The BRR consider themselves caretakers of public lands. Our stewardship is demonstrated by our "on the ground" work clearing and maintaining trails. We have worked with and our currently working with other un-related groups - horse, hikers, and mountain bikers - so that we can all share and enjoy trails on public lands.
