Although we'd love to have the CYCLE FOR INDEPENDENCE run as usual — you know, the camaraderie, the mass of smiling bikers heading down the road on a spring day, the live music, the food, and the special festive feeling that is our signature — we're just not seeing that by mid–May we’ll be comfortable bringing 500 riders together in one spot. The 2021 CYCLE FOR INDEPENDENCE must be a virtual experience.

All distances will be $35.00. Participants may complete their rides anywhere, there is no need to follow our established routes/ Rides should be completed and recorded between May 8 and May 22. WE’D REALLY APPRECIATE YOU COMING BACK TO THIS WEB SITE AND RECORDING YOUR RIDE: DISTANCE AND DATE. It's just sharing, communicating: a way of being together. Registration is open now.

Our famous socks may be picked up on May 22 between 10:00 and 12:00 at Riverglen Jr. High, 6801 N. Gary Ln., Boise.

Thank you for your continuing support of Idaho’s blind and visually impaired.
