St. George Bicycle Collective Staff

Judith Rognli

St. George Bicycle Collective Director

Judith Rognli began riding her bike to school in first grade and has never stopped since. She moved to St. George from Germany in 2015. For her, the Bicycle Collective is the perfect place to share her passion for bicycling and to be an active part of the growing bicycling community in St. George. She loves to empower and encourage people to use their bikes as their form of every day transportation and to learn about bike mechanics. Judith has previously worked as a researcher and university teacher, and she has run volunteer projects and ridden her bike with students in Kyrgyzstan, Germany and other places around the globe.
