Fun biking events keep rolling in September.

Avimor Demo Day will be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 7 at the neighborhood, located about 8 miles north of Boise on Idaho 55.

Ten local bike shops and regional distributors will display mountain bikes, road bikes, and riding accessories at the event.

People can get a look at various bikes and take them for test rides on Avimor’s extensive trail network that features about 90 miles of trails, much if it built for mountain biking.

There will also be a bike race sponsored by the Knobby Tire Series, and noncompetitive group rides at 10 a.m., noon and 2 p.m.

The race will be a mass-start, 45-minute race plus one lap. Five dollars out of each entry fee will go into a pot that the fastest three riders will split.

To register for the race, go to knobbytireseries.com.

There will also be riding clinics for all levels, beer and wine by the Beer Guys, and barbecue by Rolling Hawg Smokers.
