You may still see Lilly around the shop, but she has resigned her position as Volunteer Coordinator to pursue grad school, so we're looking to fill her position.

These are some big shoes to fill, but if you've got a passion for bikes, our mission, and connecting with people, this is the job for you!

The Ogden Bicycle Collective relies heavily on volunteers to ensure the functionality of its community programs and the shop.  Volunteers are involved in helping maintain the shop (cleanliness, safety, etc.), helping to fix bikes for our Goodwill Bike Program and Kid’s Bike Giveaways, staffing events, and more.  It is the Volunteer Coordinator’s job to actively engage the community and potential volunteers. The Volunteer Coordinator is passionate about OBC’s mission and programs, and innovative and flexible, using a multitude of methods and tools to recruit and retain volunteers.  The Volunteer Coordinator should also have excellent communication and teaching skills, as well as be able to demonstrate competence as a bicycle mechanic in order to train volunteers in the shop.

Bicycle Collective Hiring Committee at

Welcome to our newest line of products!

We are now offering "Ride-able" bikes for those who are looking for a bargain.

Unlike other bikes in our store, these bikes are not refurbished (prices vary between $40 - $150). Every "Ride-able" bike comes with one hour of free bench coaching. We will help you diagnose any existing issues and show you how to fix them. "Ride-able" bikes are sold "as-is" and are not refundable.

Every purchase at the Bicycle Collective helps us to provide bicycles, repair help, and educational programs to adults and children in need.

We are very happy to share our 2018 numbers with you. Here's what we accomplished together. Thank you!

 

Find out how to get involved HERE 

Goodwill Bikes

Our Goodwill Bikes program provides free bicycles to anyone who can’t afford to purchase one. Goodwill Bikes may be earned through 6 hours of volunteer service.  Find out how to volunteer here.

If you are in need of a bike for transportation, are currently NOT able to volunteer with us, and if you are receiving help from an organization such as Switchpoint CRC, the Court Support Services, and others, ask your caseworker to contact us. 

We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to Lexus Pursuit of Potential for the matching grant of $5000 that will fund our Youth Open Shop for the next 6 months!!
Thank you so much to allow these kids to learn about bikes, develop leadership skills, and create life-long friendships and memories!

In order to reach more individuals in need who might not be able to travel to the Bicycle Collective, we are starting to offer a monthly ‘Bike Kitchen’ at Switchpoint on Wednesday, Jan 16, 2019, 2 - 4:30 PM. 

The Bike Kitchen is taking us back to our roots - this is how the St. George Bicycle Collective started in 2015, when Dannielle Larkin first gathered a group of volunteers and solicited bicycle donations to help the homeless in St. George.

The Bike Kitchen will take place monthly. Switchpoint residents are notified in advance, our volunteers help with immediate repair needs and give out invitations to the Bicycle Collective to those who need more in-depth help or who would like to earn a bike through our Earn-A-Bike program.

If you are currently in need of repair help or of a bike for transportation, or if you would like to help at the Bike Kitchen as a volunteer mechanic, please contact . Find out more about how to volunteer with us and about our Goodwill Earn-A-Bike Program HERE
