In honor of Mother’s Day, Fran B. (my cycling mom) is our weekly Friday featured bike rider. I love you, Mom! Thanks for being a wonderful inspiration for me.
1. Where do you like to ride your bike?
Downtown Boise, Idaho. I love riding the Greenbelt. I follow the Greenbelt along the Boise River into the downtown business area. I love stopping and having lunch at one of the restaurants and then visiting the framer’s market at the Capital Market. It is a great route and the scenery is beautiful.
2. Why do you like to ride your bike?
I like to ride for pleasure at a leisurely pace. Just enjoying the time outdoors and the exercise.
3. What’s your favorite restaurant?
My favorite restaurant is Rick’s Press Room in Meridian, Idaho. His menu is always fresh, the atmosphere is friendly, and Rick’s potato crusted salmon is delicious.
4. Early bird or night owl?
Early bird. I am usually up during the work week by 4:30a.m. and on weekends by 7:00 a.m. I also love going to sleep early. If I am up past 9:00 p.m. that’s late for me.
5. What is one lesson you learned from your mom?
Commitment. She always followed through on all her commitments. She was committed to my dad through all their married years, she always took the best care of myself and my 3 sisters, and also worked at several jobs. She was committed to all the tasks she took on as wife, mother and employee.
