    Bicycle Maintenance has traditionally been an overwhelmingly (cis) male-dominated area. It is our goal to help teach individuals who have been marginalized or intimidated in this setting to be knowledgable and confident working on their bikes.  Maya Hardie, SpyHop youth filmmaker, explains this program offers a safe and supportive learning environment fo those who identify as women, trans, or femme.

    Designer Jessie Gilmore happens to be a pretty mean contour-line artist, she helped explain the gamut of different programs at the Bike Collective and how they all tie together to make some magic happen.

Jordan became affiliated with Bicycle Collective volunteering with the Salt Lake Bicycle Collective for the past two years. He got aquainted with Provo Bicycle Collective by stopping in for random parts or help and has become a friend of the shop. Jordan's love of bikes started with racing road bikes with the University of Utah. Now he goes on extended bicycle tours, camping on his bikes for weeks to months at a time. He is currently a senior at the University of Utah studying political science and environmental sustainability. Previously, Jordan was the Provo Head Mechanic.

The Bicycle Collective is happy to welcome our newest location in St. George.  Visit us at 70 W St. George Blvd.

About the St. George Bicycle Collective

The St. George Bicycle Collective is our youngest location and the only Community Bike Shop in Southern Utah. Like all shops, we started off with a small group of volunteers that committed hundreds, if not thousands, of hours to building bikes for people in need. The St. George Bicycle Collective became a full-fledged Community Bike Shop in October 2017. 

The St. George Bicycle Collective is temporarily located at 389 Industrial Road, Unit 8. We take our commitment very seriously to make bicycles affordable and accessible for all, and we strive to grow our educational programs for adults and youth, our earn-a-bike programs, and social events and rides for cycling enthusiasts and newbies alike.

Provo Bike Prom a Success

Written by

On the evening of October 27th, about 80 people gathered at the Provo Bicycle Collective to ride their bikes.  However, instead of dressing in casual clothing or athletic gear, this group decked themselves out in tuxedos and gowns.  It was Prom night in Provo; Bike Prom, that is!

Bike Prom is an annual fundraising event consisting of a casual ride around town and a dance.  All proceeds go to the Bicycle Collective to be used for their charitable programs. 

This year’s event featured a 5-mile ride around downtown and the pioneer neighborhoods and ended at the Startup Building were the dance was held. 

The event drew nearly 100 participants and raised $340 dollars, enough to provide six underprivileged people with a free Goodwill Bike from Provo Bicycle Collective.

Thanks to all who attended and we hope to see more people next year!

Provo Bicycle Collective is proud to announce a newly-formed partnership with BYU police who will now donate bikes abandoned on BYU campus.  BYU Police joins Provo and Springville police departments in donating abandoned bikes to charity.

Each semester, between 200-300 bikes are bikes are left on BYU campus; 3-5% of all bikes on campus during warmer months.  BYU Police has agreed to donate these bikes to Provo Bicycle Collective who will refurbish and send the bikes back on the road; giving many away and selling others at low cost.

In 2016, Bicycle Collective’s statewide operations received 5,552 donated bicycles and sent 3,089 repaired bikes back into the community, giving away 1,609 to underprivileged individuals.

With increased donations, Provo Bicycle Collective hopes to increase its output, putting hundreds more bikes on the road and encouraging Provo citizens to drive cars less.
