Boise Bicycle Project announced on its Facebook page that it had been done: enough cash has been raised for the non-profit to purchase its current facility at 1027 Lusk St. and make it a permanent home.
"Huge thanks to all the people who made it possible, stop by and see us, we'll be at the shop for the next 100 centuries!" said BBP on Facebook.
The "Biking to Buy the Building" fundraiser established a goal of $115,00 to purchase the warehouse; it broke that number with $115,843 as of Mon. October 3. October also marks the 4th anniversary of their opening.
"We’re very excited. We’re all very excited," bike mechanic Andrew Little told Boise Weekly. "We’re extremely grateful for all the support we’ve received from the community thus far, and grateful for the continued support from this community."
