Children pedaled with power. Celebrities cycled with conviction. And Maxwell Moose entertained with enthusiasm.The 2018 Twilight Criterium took place on the streets of downtown Boise on Saturday, July 14, and it featured cyclists of all abilities. The pros raced in the evening, but the children and celebrities took center stage during the day.
Although temperatures reached 100 degrees, Dr. Beattie braved the heat and put forth a valiant effort.
“He had his helmet on, and he was ready for anything,” Dr. Beattie said. “He went hard in the corners.”
Well, not too hard.“I always signaled right, because I had no peripheral vision,” Dr. Beattie said. “So, I had to make sure the people behind me knew I was turning.”
The Celebrity GreenBike race featured the bikes that are available to the public for rent throughout Boise. St. Luke’s joins SelectHealth as a GreenBike sponsor.
“It was a sweet ride,” Dr. Beattie said. “I would recommend it to anyone.”
Still, Dr. Beattie managed to ride a little faster on her own bike – and without the Maxwell suit – when she competed earlier in the day in the Women's Category 2/3/4 race.
