KIDS INVITED TO TAKE A SPIN WITH KRISTIN ARMSTRONG

The ride is at 6 p.m., today, June 26, to dedicate a new children's bike trail at Boise Hills Park at 651 N. Clubview Court. To get to the park, travel north on 8th Street to Brumback Street and turn right. Continue on Boise Hills Drive at the Somerset Hills housing complex, then left on Clubview.

The .6-mile single-track path provides a safe place for kids age 12 and younger to ride, said Amy Stahl, Boise Parks and Recreation spokesperson. The gently rolling trail is the first of its kind in Boise, [0x13]Stahl said, and is named for two-time Olympic gold medalist Kristin Armstrong. The $3,600 project was funded a Neighborhood Reinvestment Grant awarded by the mayor and city council to the Boise Heights Neighborhood Association.
