The Vista Neighborhood Association is applying for a grant to install bike repair stands at Hawthorne Elementary School and the Whitney Community Center.
For the past 4 years, community members from the Boise Bike Project, YMCA Safe Routes to School, Boise State students, and the Vista Neighborhood Association have held bike repair and safety events for community youth. During these events, children and families have access to tools and hands-on instruction in basic bicycle repair. By installing bike repair stands with tools, children and other community members will be empowered to fix their own bikes and safely navigate the community. Properly working bikes provide a healthy activity for children.
