Leslie Bohm Education Center campaign gains ground

Published September 28, 2016

BOULDER, Colo. (BRAIN) — Community Cycles of Boulder, Colorado, America's third-largest community bicycle organization, is raising funds to purchase a new $1.5 million building. A thousand square feet of the new space will be dedicated to the Leslie Bohm Education Center, a facility to teach Boulder bikers about all aspects of bikes and cycling.

CC's development director, Jennifer Shriver, patrolled the halls of Interbike last Friday, along with CC capital campaign chair Ray Keener. "There's sure a lot of love for Leslie in the bike industry," Shriver said. "We're really gratified by all the support we're getting."

The Education Center will allow Community Cycles to expand its currently overbooked class and clinic programs by three to four times. Sue Prant, CC's executive director, explained why.

"We're currently forced to do our education in the same space as our repair shop," Prant said. "In the new building, we can have the shop open to service members and hold classes at the same time."

Bohm's widow, Lynn Guissinger, is also on the Capital Campaign committee. Holly Wiese and Andy Davis of 3 Dots Design in Boulder are working on the store design and layout, with longtime CC volunteer Mercedes Ross directing the merchandising.
