Sean spends his days as the Legislative Audit Director for Salt Lake County and his weekends getting rad in the mountains, the rock, and the dirt. He'll ride any bike you've got.

I love being on a bike. But even more than that, I love riding in close proximity to my family and friends. A close third is seeing others on bikes, particularly kids. It is at times like these that I feel the most hope for the world.

I like to commute to work (always getting the best parking spot). I like to pedal when I'm going out for the evening. I like thinking about how to get non-riders on bikes. I like to get in a bit of distance on the road. I like riding the mountains and deserts in and around Utah. I like multi-day family treks. And finally, I like exploring other cities and countries by bike.

My favorite day of the year is Bike Prom.

No prior knowledge about bikes needed, we are happy to teach you what you need to know!

Kids and Youth are welcome! Please bring a guardian if you are under 16. Groups of more than 4 people please call ahead! Thanks!

 

I love racing and riding mountain bikes, fishing, and playing classical bass. Being on staff since 2016 I am the most senior employee (lol), despite being the youngest mechanic. If you see me in the shop please bring me your weird mechanical issues cause I think that’s fun.

Bike mechanics has traditionally been a male-dominated trade.  To promote equality, Provo Bicycle Collective will host volunteer hours set aside for traditionally marginalized groups including women, girls, transgender, and any female-identifying people.

These volunteer hours are designed to create a safe and inclusive space and will function the same as existing volunteer hours.  All bicycles repaired by volunteers are given away to people who couldn’t otherwise afford one, giving independent transportation to those who need it most.  Our goal in creating this program will be reached if said individuals feel included in our volunteer program. 

We invite all women, trans, and female-identifying people to join us during these volunteer hours to repair bikes for those in need.  We need your help!  Provo Bicycle Collective gave away 408 bikes in 2017 and with your help, we will give away many more in the years to come.

Learn how to participate here.

Women's Volunteer Night

Wednesdays from 4-7pm.

Bike mechanics has traditionally been a male-dominated trade. Let's change that!

Women’s Volunteer Nights offer a safe and supportive environment for females (and those who identify) to volunteer in the shop and learn about bicycle mechanics. Join us whether you have experience with bicycles or not. Individuals can now work on thier own bicycles during this time free of charge.

The work volunteers do will help further the Bicycle Collective’s goals of creating a cleaner, healthier environment, and providing bicycles for children and and those who can’t otherwise afford one. Provo Bicycle Collective gave away 408 bikes in 2017 and with your help, we will give away many more in the years to come!

Provo Bicycle Collective is proud to announce a newly-formed partnership with Refugee Action Network through which we hope to provide dozens of free bikes each year to refugees seeking to become self-sufficient in Utah Valley.

In its last year of work, Refugee Action Network has proven itself as an effective resource for refugees who have already spent some time in the US and seeking to become more self-sufficient. 

Our partnership allows Refugee Action Network to recommend their clients to our shop for a free Goodwill Bike – donated bicycles refurbished by PBC volunteers.  In 2016, Bicycle Collective gave away 1,436 Goodwill Bikes throughout Utah.

Our hope is that their refugees will use these bikes to meet daily transportation needs; riding to work, shopping for groceries, and meeting appointments. 

We’re always in need of willing volunteers to repair bikes for these refugees.  Interested volunteers can find out how to fix bikes with us at Bicyclecollective.org.  No experience is necessary.

For the safety of our staff we are available Tues-Sat by appointment only. Please select an option below:

About the Salt Lake City Bicycle Collective

The Salt Lake City shop is the flagship location of the Bicycle Collective. Founded in 2002, the Collective was born when a small group of enthusiastic bicycle users put to the test ideas that appeared to be complementary realities: that bicycles are a sustainable form of urban transportation and people just need a little encouragement to choose to ride; and the fact that there are bicycles sitting unused in garages and backyards throughout the Wasatch front that could be refurbished and put to use by someone in need.

Starting from such a simple idea, the Collective has grown from a small working board of directors in a rented storage unit in Glendale, to a state-wide organization with four community bike shops in three cities and growing!

The SLCBC is the engine that empowers the organization. The SLCBC sells refurbished bicycles as well as used and new components and accessories, the revenue from which is reinvested into ever expanding programming that allows us to give hundreds of bikes to adults and kids in need each year, teach free repair classes, earn-a-bike and mountain bike camps for kids, job training and more! It’s a model we’re proud of and is built with long-term sustainability and mutual benefit in mind—the more people use our shops, the more programming we’re able to offer!

Swing by the shop at 2312 S. West Temple sometime to learn more about what we have to offer or to see how you can get involved with the movement to put as many bikes on the streets of SLC as possible. Happy riding!
