bbp parkingFINAL_LOGO_2011Our friends at Boise Bicycle Project have generously provided free bicycle parking in front of The Record Exchange for Record Store Day Weekend!

The bicycle rack will be on the sidewalk (Idaho Street side) and will remain there through Sunday’s Lord Huron in-store. Anyone who cycles to the RX Friday-Sunday will be entered to win a Record Exchange/Boise Bicycle Project prize pack that includes a Boise Bicycle Project membership ($100 value), $20 Record Exchange Gift Card and cycling-related items from The Record Exchange Gift Shop!

Boise Bicycle Project is once again participating in Idaho Gives, and BBP’s project this year is turning Boise into the Bicycle Capital of America for 24 hours on May 7. Check for updates! Visit BBP’s Idaho Gives page HERE.

Donations to BBP during Idaho Gives will be designated toward the purchase of a second building in the Lusk Street District, which will house a functional instructional space for BBP’s educational programs and office space for other bicycle organizations in Boise.

The community center will serve as a mentoring facility and a space to house other local bicycling organizations. “We really believe that this building is the next step in Boise being able to work on long-term goals toward becoming the bicycling capital of America,” says Jimmy Hallyburton, BBP’s executive director.


In October of 2007, two hotshot firefighters put their axes and chainsaws down and began repairing and donating used bikes to under privileged kids. They dreamed of creating a cooperative workspace that made bicycle education and quality-recycled bicycles available to the entire community.

Seven years later, BBP has donated over 10,215 bicycles to the Treasure Valley, while teaching countless members of the community about bicycle repair and safety. BBP has grown into a fully functional bicycle cooperative with services to offer every demographic. It has truly been a dream come true, and the impact on Boise can be seen with recycled bicycles gracing the streets everywhere you look.

At Boise Bicycle Project we rebuild bikes to build better lives. Please join the ride and give today.
