Boise Bicycle Project Two Year Anniversary


After two years of fixing flats, promoting bicycle usage and donating two-wheeled transportation to the community, Boise Bicycle Project is ready to celebrate. What started out as a tiny operation working out of a 15-square-foot storage room has blossomed into one of Boise's premier bike meccas. To thank all the volunteers who made such a feat possible, BBP, voted Boise's Best nonprofit in 2009, will hold its two-year anniversary party at Bittercreek Ale House this weekend.

Over the course of the last two action-packed years, more than 520 bicycles have been donated to people in need, while countless others have been given new life. More than 850 volunteers have been trained in bike maintenance and upkeep, and that number is continually growing. BBP believes Boise has the potential to become the bicycle capital of the country, and by increasing overall bike awareness and accessibility, they're one step closer to that goal.

Saturday, Oct. 17, 6-9 p.m., FREE, Bittercreek Ale House, 246 N. Eighth St., 208-429-6520,
