Weekly Update: The HandleBar Boise, Twilight Crit, Volunteering with BBP & More!

Volunteer Updates and Opportunities

It’s too hot outside! Come into the shop this week and chill out with some of these cool volunteer opportunities:

  • Youth Earn-A-Bike. Help out with this amazing program where kids aged 12 - 18 build up their very own bicycle!
  • Bike Valet at the Capital City Public Market. Park bikes, people watch, and spread the word about BBP’s upcoming events.
  • Mobile Fix-It! Roll around with Adam and the Mobile Fix-It trailer and help bring bicycle maintenance knowledge to the streets of Boise.
  • Gears & Beers. BBP is the beneficiary for this fun filled event on Thursday from 6-8pm. Volunteer to help out at the BBP table & with one of the timed bike comp challenges. Email kelly@boisebicycleproject.org to sign up.

And...start getting stoked for Tour de Fat! We are about one month away from the big day. Email hayden@boisebicycleproject.org for more information about volunteering with TdF.

Thanks for reading. I hope to see all of you in the shop soon!
