Big thanks to everyone who has been in to the shop to pitch in. That said, if you’ve got some basic tools at home and you’d like to do some volunteering from the comfort of your own garage we have an “Adopt-a-bike” option, allowing you to take a bike home and work on it at your leisure. Email aaron@boisebicycleproject.org if you're interested!

For those that will be in for Volunteer Nights our main focus will continue to be fixing up giveaway bikes but this Thursday from 6-8 is “Kid’s Fix-It”, so if you know of any youngsters who already have bikes and need a flat repaired or a brake adjusted, send ‘em our way. That evening volunteers will be helping kids learn to fix their bikes free of charge, replacement parts included! It’s always a lot of fun, hope to see you there!

FRIDAY NIGHT MEMBERS CLASS

November 17th | 6:30-8pm | BBP HQ

Getting to Know Your Bicycle: Customized Bike Fit/Adjustment

Bicycles are designed to fit a wide range of people adequately, but nobody perfectly. Since all 5’8’’ people don’t have the same body composition (weight, torso length, flexibility, etc.), or riding style, it’s important to spend some time upfront getting to know your bicycle and making some tailored adjustments.

In this class we help you get to know your bicycle a little better adjust your bicycle to your body, riding style, and desired purpose and give you some options for further customization. Everyone should leave with a more comfortable fitting bicycle.
