As many of you know, Boise Bicycle Project depends on your support. Whether that be through volunteering, donating or supporting our mission by becoming a BBP Member, the support you contribute to us everyday spreads into the community we work in for giveaways or the services in our shop.
When considering Boise Bicycle Project’s mission, before and after working here, I often dwelled on the “social benefits of bicycling”. I struggled to connect the social benefit to our programming; where it was, why it mattered, how we acted upon it. This isn’t to say I was critical of it, rather I knew there was a connection there, and was curious to find it.
This Saturday a crew of volunteers, Christa, Jimmy, Sam, and I set out to fix up a bunch of Kid Bikes. Why? For future riders everywhere, and to celebrate the social benefits of bicycling, that’s why!
