-- (BOISE, ID) - When preparing for the arrival of some of the world’s top women cyclists for the Exergy Tour, race organizers found themselves facing a daunting challenge: where to store the racers’ expensive bicycles when they are not being used on the course.
PODS® of Boise, the local moving and storage company, stepped up with a logistical solution. The company donated 19 PODS storage containers that will securely store hundreds of bikes while the 17 international pro cycling teams are not competing during the five day pre-Olympic event.
From May 19 - 29, PODS containers will be placed at five Idaho city hotels where the Exergy Tour will take place: Boise, Nampa, Kuna, Garden Valley / Crouch and Idaho City.
“We are thrilled to welcome these world class female cyclists to Idaho,” said Alex Olson, PODS of Boise Territory Manager. “We are happy to do our small part to protect their prized possessions when they are not on the race route.”
The Exergy Tour will take place May 24 –28 over the Memorial Day weekend. Over 15 of the top ladies pro cycling teams from around the world are expected to participate in the inaugural race, which was founded by the Boise-based Exergy Development Group. The race will be one of the last trials to provide international ranking points crucial to qualifying for the upcoming Olympic Games in London.
