Two-wheeled travel enthusiasts in Idaho's capital city likely have some knowledge of Boise Bicycle Project. Whether they have participated in one of BBP's innovative events, like the Pedal 4 the People festival, or stopped by the bike shop, BBP is the place to be for bike enthusiasts.
Today, the nonprofit will celebrate five years in existence with a big ol' party. The last half-decade has included a community fundraising campaign so BBP could purchase its building (which succeeded despite having money stolen), bike-in movies and plenty of crazy costumes.
The crazy costume part will continue with the Pedaler Appreciation Party. An '80s prom ride will precede the party, wherein participants can recycle the high-school dance attire they've been holding onto for a couple decades and meet at 1 p.m. in Julia Davis Park at the bandshell to show it off.
The neon-and-tulle-clad group will finish its ride at Trey McIntyre Project headquarters at 2 p.m. Free food will be provided by Life's Kitchen and suds by the bike-friendly New Belgium Brewing Co.
