If you aren't familiar with the Boise Bicycle Project, they are a local, non-profit organization that according to their mission statement:

"is a community-oriented cooperative that promotes the personal, social, and environmental benefits of bicycling"

The Boise Bike Project, or BBP, recycles, refurbishes, and in-turn provides bicycles at affordable prices for members of our community that need a form or transportation or to children who just want to ride around the neighborhood on a bike with their friends.  To the BBP, bicycling is a culture that they want everyone to be able to be a part of.

For the past year, the BBP has been working to expand their facilities and finally, it has been completed. With the expanion comes office space for day-to-day employees, a classroom, and more space to process donated bikes. It's a pretty amazing atmosphere they've built. With a number of kids that come to visit the shop on a daily basis, the hope is for kids to feel comfortable to do their homework and more in the new and improved facility. It's a place where productivity can be done, both individually and for the community.

Now, the space is 2000 square feet and the organization hopes that the added space will be used to the best of it's potential almost immediately.

With the 10th year anniversary of the BBP coming up, you can join the celebration on October 14th! Fore more information on this event and more, click HERE.
