Ikaika Cox, Provo Director

A Utah County native, I began volunteering at the Provo Bicycle Collective in 2012. After completing a Bachelor’s degree in Literature and Philosophy in 2015, I moved to Boise and began working with the Boise Bicycle Project where I honed my skills as a mechanic and educator. In 2016 I returned to Provo, committed to growing the operation here. I love bicycles because I see them as a vehicle that challenges riders to push themselves and engage their community in a different way. I see the Collective growing and becoming more effective in fostering community impact and growth, and serving as a space in which community members can grow and develop themselves.

Danielle Stiff, Ogden Director

Danielle is a long time bicycle commuter, but until stepping into the Ogden Bicycle Collective (OBC), knew very little about bike mechanics.  She began attending the free Bike Mechanic 101 classes, then applied for and was accepted into the first round of OBC's Apprenticeship Program.  After completing the program, Danielle was hired as OBC's Volunteer Coordinator, where she took an active role in helping to develop many of OBC's existing programs.  When the position became available, Danielle was promoted to Director of the Ogden Bicycle Collective.  Danielle has been involved in non-profit work for over a decade, and has seen first-hand how bikes can improve people's lives.  She is proud to be part of a sustainable community organization that works to empower people and promote a healthy lifestyle.

Judith Rognli, St. George 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 and felt like the universe was conspiring when she found out about the Bicycle Collective. 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.

Abby - Shop Greeter

Abby is currently interviewing to become the Bicycle Collective mascot as a vocal and enthusiastic supporter. She loves meeting all of the volunteers and youth that come into the shop. Sometimes she takes quick dog naps while her human interacts with others. While she loves being in the shop, she prefers to be on the trails hiking or biking with her human. Abby does love treats and ear scratches.
