12 years of BBP is equivalent to 20,000+ bicycles diverted from our landfill, over 6,000 bicycles donated to kids in the valley, forever impacting their opportunity and connection to our great city, over 700 members and volunteers that make it all happen, that share their ideas and passion for BBP throughout the community.
The impact Boise Bicycle Project has had on our bicycling community is truly incomprehensible, and as I near the end of my first year as BBP’s Engagement Coordinator, I find myself overwhelmed with this community I feel so lucky to work in.
For these reasons and more, I am so excited for this Saturdays Annual Appreciation Party. I am also so excited to reveal some of the rad Silent Auction items we will have for you during the celebration! I am only highlighting a few, but I assure we got something for everyone. Check out what we got for ya!
Winter Wildlands Alliance
This basket is quite the motherload. This basket includes 2 WWA hats, shirts, a bunch o’ stickers, authentic protective goggle socks, WWA memberships and….
TWO TICKETS TO THE 2019 WILD WEEKEND from October 24th-27th! These tickets get you entrance to the 8th Biennial Grassroots Advocacy Conference, 15th Annual Backcountry Film Festival (one of my favorite festivals in Boise!), and finally the 5th Annual SnowSchool SnowBall: Ski Bum Gala. Holy cow.
We are endlessly grateful to Melinda and the Winter Wildlands Alliance, thank you for supporting BBP!
Roots Zero Waste Market
The next big trend sure ain’t plastic. Fret not, the newly opened and forever awesome Roots Zero Waste will help you with the first steps toward a plastic free lifestyle.

The Big Barley Basket
If you are lucky, you’ve met our Board Member Mark while supporting Boise Bicycle Project. Perhaps at one of our Holiday Kids Bike Giveaway, Annual Impact Meeting, or really any other event, cause as long as he isn’t fightin’ fires in Nampa, Mark is here.
Anyway, outside of this committed support of BBP and being a Nampa City Firefighter, Mark rocks at making Silent Auction baskets and has donated a Barley Basket.
This basket includes…. you guessed it; barley themed basket! In this beautiful flannel basket is Barley soup, wine, seeds,a specialty beer from Barley Browns, a Barley Browns trucker hat and more!
Big thanks to Mark for creating this unique basket!

Summer may have ended… but does it ever end in Boise?
NOPE! Thanks to Idaho River Sports, you can have fun in the sun all year long! You and four friends can gear up with 4 new Idaho River Sports hat and a 1 hour pond rental. They’re open on Sunday, so consider this your next Sunday Funday.
