Written by

We're looking to hire up to two bicycle mechanics in the coming weeks. We're confident it's the best mechanic job in the valley. Please send your resume to and we'll schedule a working interview with you soon!

Casey Carrigan

Mechanic & Open Shop Manager

A serendipitous hiring through Americorps VISTA in 2010 moved Casey from the suburbs of western New York to the quiet of Colorado’s San Juan mountains, where he coordinated outreach for the Lake Fork Valley Conservancy, founded a community garden non-profit, and discovered the many ways one can play in the vast expanse of the American west. Casey moved to SLC in August 2015, and began volunteering at the Bicycle Collective within a few weeks. Interested in literature, geography, planning, and their interactions with social and environmental issues, Casey is excited to tumble deeper down the rabbit hole of bicycle knowledge.

Cosby

Shop Dog

Hi all, I'm Cosby. I work here at the OBC, its my job to say hi to you as you come in the shop. I also nap a lot while my human JP fixes all the bikes. I love working here but I'd rather be on a hike or bike ride. 

JP Orquiz

Head Mechanic

JP is pretty awesome. He has lots of experience riding and working with bikes. He is a really nice guy and loves helping you fix your bike. The best thing about JP is everywhere he goes he brings his dog Cosby, who is unquestionably the best boy!    

Terry Wilmer

Youth Program Coordinator

I'm a self proclaimed bike nerd from Washington State. I'm learning that cycling in Utah is awesome!  I believe that kids and bikes go together like peanut butter and jelly and that it's always a good time to ride.

Join us for a fun evening of dreaming up new adventures!

There will be lots of time for questions and exchange of ideas.

Enjoy a bicycle ride with the St. George Bicycle Collective, and then experience a fun, all levels yoga practice with Rachel Cieslewicz! 


Local runner, yoga instructor, cyclist, and friend, Rachel Cieslewicz, will be collaborating with the Bicycle Collective for a refreshing morning of cycling and yoga.

Bike Ride starting @ the St. George Bicycle Collective 9 AM - 10 AM 

We’ll roll out from the Bicycle Collective at 9 AM sharp and do a short loop to get our heart rates up before our yoga session. Up Diagonal Street, 18, Red Hills Parkway, down Skyline drive, to Rachel’s studio Yoga Soul. The loop takes us up and down a 600 ft. Please be self sufficient with water, flat kit, and helmet.

Yoga for Cyclists @ Yoga Soul 10:15 AM - 11:15 AM.

Please bring a yoga mat, if you can. Rachel only has a few for us to borrow. Mats can be dropped off at the studio before the ride or picked up at the Collective right after the ride. Yoga Soul and the Bicycle Collective are located less than a block apart. 

Sign up here through Rachel’s system, which is linked with her studio in Salt Lake City, normal drop-in fees ($15) apply, students with memberships or passes can use those as usual.

The Bicycle Collective received $2500 to fund a fall series of after school bike mechanics classes for Elementary Schools in Washington County. We thank Intermountain Healthcare and the Community Partner Fund for helping us to provide basic training and FREE bicycles to elementary students from low-income families!⠀
