It's Boise Bike Week 2016 (and celebrations including National Bike To Work Day happen this week too), but a question of safety is being examined across Idaho.

The timing is right with Bike Week happening as Thursday and Friday the first-of-it's kind Idaho Walk Bike Summit will be happening.

There are numerous safety hazards that local bicyclists and walkers are well aware of, and sadly, a number of deaths and injuries that have occurred over the last year in the state.

In addition to interested walkers and riders, citizens will be joined by elected officials from across the multiple departments across the state.
