About Us

Recycle Bikes

Our model is designed to increase affordable access and education and our audience is everyone. Our community bike shops in Salt Lake City, Ogden, Provo, and St. George are staffed with professional mechanic instructors who are there to walk you through tune-ups or repairs with the idea that you’ll be a more regular and confident rider after learning how to patch the tube or adjust the brakes yourself. We carry a large selection of used bicycles that are overhauled by our mechanics and given a multi-point inspection so they’re ready to ride out the door. We also carry used and new parts and accessories to get your bike dialed in perfectly to fit your riding style and personal tastes.

Access for All

But there’s so much more to the Collective. The revenue from our community bike shops provides the bulk of funding for our numerous programs that are aimed to serve underprivileged communities and children. Your purchase may help fund a much needed bike for a refugee, veteran, or recently released prisoner in transition. Or it may help pay for five bikes for kids in need. It may pay an in-house youth mechanic certification instructor salary, placing youth in jobs as bike mechanics in the area, or the salary of our instructors who teach the same course at juvenile detention centers. It’s a positive feedback loop in which the more people we help in our shops, the more people we can help outside of our shops. We see it as a win for everyone.

Build Community

We believe to our cores that the bicycle is an important machine that is rightly becoming staple of urban communities. To patrons of our programs, it may even be a critical tool for employment and self-sufficiency. We invite you to become part of the effort!  Find out more about the services we offer under each shop's programs page, join as a membervolunteer with us, donate money, donate your old bicycle, or simply come in and take advantage of the community bike shop services or hang out with us at an event. Little compares to the simple joy of riding a bicycle.

Code of Conduct Pledge

The Bicycle Collective is a place of learning and community development for anyone interested in bicycles. We strive to accommodate, understand, and celebrate the cultural backgrounds and ethnic differences of everyone who walks through our doors. Doing so means that we may need to leave some of our personal views at the door. We are not a political organization and we do not promote a political agenda. We advocate by providing a supportive environment for anything to do with biking and bike repair. We promote equality mobility in every city we serve.

When representing the Bicycle Collective community as a volunteer or employee,

We pledge to:

  • Be anti-racist. We endeavor to address any displays of injustice and any statements of untruth that disparage people based on their race or identity. If a derogatory or insensitive conversation develops, We will reject it and encourage others to do the same.
  • Leave our political opinions at the door. We will not engage in or advocate for a specific political agenda. We will refrain from political speech while at the Bicycle Collective and while representing the Bicycle Collective.
  • Honor the dignity of all individuals. We recognize that maintaining a respectful environment that celebrates the diversity of life in our community is paramount to fulfilling the Bicycle Collective’s mission. We will carry that sentiment through all our interactions with our leadership, board, employees, volunteers, clients, and customers.

In pledging ourselves to these values, we ask that all involved with the Bicycle Collective — leaders, volunteers, board members, supporters, staff — commit to taking action to make the world a more equitable place.

We have a lot of work to do — join us.
