    Within two weeks of shutting down, the Bicycle Collective reorganized, regrouped, and reinvented itself offering appointments for repairs and opening an on-line store while keeping employees on the payroll. Adult volunteers repaired and refurbished bicycle from their own homes, garages and park spaces.

    Lou Melini and Patrick Watson, long time Utah-based Bicycle Collective volunteers, and Essen Skaeblund, Volunteer Coordinator, share their experiences of volunteering during the global pandemic.
