An alternative past tense to the verb to bike. The word biked sounds awkward in some sentences so "boake" was created to replace biked in these particular situations. There are other words similar to this in the english language, for example run and ran; one does not say runned when talking about how far or long they ran. This word boake would be pronounced with a long o (the oake sounding like oak, as in the tree.)
I boake 5 miles to the store and back.
