Jessica James, TYEP Manager said she posted on Facebook the bicycles were available for any children in grades K-12, on a first come, first serve until all were gone.
The Boise Bicycle Project prepare the bikes.
Jimmy Hallyburton, the Executive Director and CO Founder of Boise Bicycle Project said they beat the snow storm delivering the bicycles from Boise to have them brought to the community. Hallyburton brought his team of bike assemblers to help assist the Fort Hall community with assembling pedals to the bikes.
Also available were bike helmets, accessories and winter hats for cold weather bike riding. All bikes were donated, repaired and recycled at the Boise Bicycle Project for their give-away events.
Fort Hall Recreation was planning on distributing the bikes in the districts but that didn’t happen because the program was closed and didn’t receive the bikes.
