PBC Bike Owners Guide

The Ogden Bicycle Collective and Ogden City Arts is pleased to announce the inaugural, Bike Homecoming! We will start the event with a free, easy, no-drop community bike ride beginning at Union Station, where everyone of all abilities is welcome. Festivities begin at 6PM. The route will ride east on 25th street, past many of the First Friday Art Stroll galleries. It then weaves through the Junction, past the Temple and Adventure Park, under the Ogden Arch, and eventually back to the Ogden Amphitheater—where the party begins. DJ KyWizard from Lavender Vinyl will provide the music, you provide the dance moves.

Everyone is encouraged to dress in their best formal attire befitting of Homecoming.

The community bike ride is free, but tickets will be sold for the dance. Ticket sales and other donations from Bike Homecoming go to supporting the Ogden Bicycle Collective's community programs. Come out for a good time to support bikes, cyclists, and the community!

Bikes for Tykes

Do you remember your first bike? I remember mine, it was blue with white tires and a flower covered banana seat. It was not only my freedom to get around, but also my freedom to explore. With this bike I started a love affair that has lasted to this day. Imagine never having that first bike. For many kids, this is a reality. Help us put a first bike into the hands of 100+ elementary aged children by donating to our Bikes for Tykes fundraiser.

Bingham CycleryMTB Enthusiasts of Utah and WomenMTB have come together to raise money for us here at the Collective. Last year was an amazing success with over $7000 raised in monetary and in kind donations we were able to give more than 90 bikes to kids in need.  This year we hope to do even more and will be hosting 2 events!

MAKE A CHILD HAPPY THIS SEASON

If you want to help, any amount from $5 to $500, makes a difference. Donate today! You can also help by volunteering for the giveaway events on Nov. 11th in Ogden and Dec. 2nd in Salt Lake, to do so, fill out this form and someone will be in touch.

Funds above and beyond what is needed for the Bikes for Tykes giveaway will be used to support a new Bicycle Collective youth program called “Bike School.” From start to finish, this program aims to place young people from diverse backgrounds in real bike shop jobs along the Wasatch Front, teach life long job skills and continue to provide a way for youth to earn a bike through volunteerism.
