NAMPA, Idaho — The Boise Bicycle Project has been a big success in helping children gain access to bikes, and now, Nampa is launching their own program with the same name. Bike enthusiasts gathered at the Nampa Public Library over the weekend to come up with a way to create the Nampa Bicycle Project.
Biking is becoming more popular in Nampa and this group hopes to use the foundation created by Jimmy Hallyburton and the Boise organization to improving biking.
"We have just discovered this incredible need in Nampa for families to have bikes and people that need them for transportation and lots of bikes were getting thrown away, so this is good for the planet and good for the community," said Larita Schandorff, Nampa Bicycle Project.
A dedicated group of four volunteers have been rebuilding bikes and giving them away for the last two years. This group has come to a point where they wanted to ask the Nampa community for help to officially start the Nampa Bicycle Project.
