WHY BECOME A MEMBER?

 
IMG_9537.jpg

The Boise Bicycle Project is Boise's one and only nonprofit bicycle cooperative. This means we rely on our members for support, decision making, and spreading the BBP message.

Being a member at BBP means you’re a part of something bigger than yourself. We want you to get as much out of your membership as you possibly can, and are excited about all of the personal benefits a membership provides (like having your own bike shop, discount on parts, and more!). But your BBP membership is also so much bigger than the individual benefits it provides!

Your membership dollars keep our doors open for everyone in the community to learn and benefit from our programs. We work hard, with your help, to make our shop a place of equality and inclusivity.

 

BECOMING A MEMBER

We strive to keep our memberships affordable and accessible to everyone by offering both monthly and yearly options. You can register, or renew your existing membership, online or in person by coming to our shop. Feel free to email info@boisebicycleproject.org if you have any questions or need help with registering!

WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A MEMBER AT BBP

Being a member at BBP means you’re a part of something bigger than yourself. We’re excited about all of the personal benefits a membership provides, and we want you to get as much out of your membership as you possibly can. But your BBP membership is so much bigger than the individual benefits it provides.

Your membership dollars keep our doors open for all individuals in the community to learn and benefit from our programs. We work hard, with your help, to make our shop a place of equality and inclusivity.

A Sustaining Membership adds additional level of support to our organization. Beyond the normal $100 membership fee, the additional $100 goes equally into both a scholarship fund that provides memberships to those in a need AND BBP’s reserve fund to ensure that we can keep our doors open and our programs running through an emergency.
