Riding the Boise Greenbelt and Rail Bridge

Host Brock Frazier starts a ride at Ann Morrison Park in Boise, Idaho, crosses the river, takes a stretch of Boise River Greenbelt, crosses the river again on a 1923 rail bridge, and then finally ends the ride on the Boise Bench. Enjoy the ride.

The Greenbelt area is nice today, but this was not the case 40 years ago. Former Boise city councilman Bill Onweiler made a film in 1970 promoting the Boise Greenbelt concept. Here’s the video on YouTube.

This week’s TV Cycle ride starts in Ann Morrison Park (5:23 in the film), crosses a bridge that didn’t exist in 1970 (but is mentioned in the film at 5:16), goes along the north side of the river, then over the rail bridge (light colored in the film at 6:10), and finally up the bench (off camera, to the left).
