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. In June 2019, I moved to lead the Salt Lake City branch of the Bicycle Collective.

Recognizing Our Generous Supporters

The Bicycle Collective's impact would not be possible without the generous philanthropic support of many of individuals, corporations, foundations, and other funders. Their contributions continue to make a difference in the lives of thousands of Utahns. We are grateful for their support and pleased to recognize them in the listing below, which is updated quarterly, consistent with the Collective's commitment to transparency. We are grateful for their generosity.    

Dustin began his career in the cycling industry as a junior road racer working and wrenching in shops to support his racing ambitions. At one point he had a 50 mile round-trip commute from Bountiful to Millcreek Bicycles. In 2010, Dustin earned his USA Cycling Category 1 rank and had a top-20 result at U-23 nationals in the time trial. The following year he began working at Quality Bicycle Products (QBP) as a customer service representative. 

Dustin became aware of the Bicycle Collective in 2012 after a snowboarding accident put an end to his road racing ambitions. In 2013, Dustin was hired as the Ogden Bicycle Collective’s open shop manager and eventually helped move the building from Wall Ave. to the Fowler Ave. location. 

At QBP Dustin took on an additional role as the site ACE Coordinator. This gave him experience organizing volunteer projects and working on advocacy efforts.

Dustin spent 3 years immersed in the world of disc-brakes at TRP/Tektro USA working as a warranty tech / customer service rep / graphic designer / human swiss army knife before joining the Bicycle Collective as the Ogden Location Director in July 2019.

He loves helping people learn to fix their bikes and enjoy the sport that has brought such happiness to his life. Dustin loves mountain biking and spending time with Chelsea, his spouse  and Edith, his daughter. 

Volunteer Coordinator

I moved to Ogden with my husband last year. The mountains, seasons, and accessibility of so many incredible natural landscapes meant that there was no question of whether we'd love it here.

After graduating, I began a career in Human Resources. I also began snowboarding at the same time. After a few years the call of the mountains and adventure was strong, and I left my office based career. In the years since I've taught English in South Korea (where I met my husband), worked as a Snowboard Instructor, and guided people through a Glow Worm cave in New Zealand.

I've commuted by bike on and off all my life, and am loving learning and practicing bike mechanics so far. I'm excited to be working in a position that serves our environment and community, and helps others to do the same through volunteering and providing the brilliant programs offered at the Bike Collective.
