Volunteer Opportunities

Tour de Fat is THIS WEEKEND and we still need tons of awesome volunteers to pull off this amazing event. We especially need people to act as parade marshals, run the beer booth, and register people for the bike parade the morning of the 12th.

All volunteers will earn a free pass to the evening’s Blackberry Smoke concert at the Idaho Botanical Garden. Sign up for a volunteer shift HERE and email hayden@boisebicycleproject.org with any questions. We’ll see you out there on Saturday!

Roll with BBP

Have you Registered for the Tour de Fat Parade?

    The past 4 consecutive Boise TdF parades have been record setting - help us show the strength in pedal powered numbers again this year! The parade will depart from Ann Morrison Park at 10am on Saturday, August 12, will roll through downtown Boise and end at the Capitol Steps for Boise’s first Bicycle Rally.

    Registration is FREE to all!

    You can choose to donate $5 (or more) and receive a limited edition 2017 Tour de Fat patch. Proceeds from your donation benefit BBP, TVCA, and SWIMBA.

    Shop Updates

    Dial in your TdF ride

    It isn’t too late to pick up a crazy clunker and some wild accessories for your parade costume. Come by the shop during our normal Wednesday through Friday hours to fine tune your lowrider, rat bike, or pedal-powered contraption and get ready for Boise’s biggest bike rally!

    The shop will be closed Saturday, August 12 so that BBP staff can enjoy all of the Tour de Fat revelry! We also won’t be hosting a Members Class this Friday so you can enjoy Radio Boise’s PreFat Party.
