Abby - Bike Shop Dog

Written by

Abby is currently interviewing to become the Bicycle Collective mascot as a vocal and enthusiastic supporter. She loves meeting all of the volunteers and youth that come into the shop. Sometimes she takes quick dog naps while her human interacts with others. While she loves being in the shop, she prefers to be on the trails hiking or biking with her human. Abby does love treats and ear scratches.

Thomas Cooke is a cyclist, skier, coach, writer, teacher, entrepreneur, local county planning commissioner, husband, and father. He settled in Park City, Utah in 1993, and has been turning pedals on all sorts of bikes ever since.

Annual Reports

While 2020 has been a challenging year for many organizations, particularly in the non-profit sector, the Bicycle Collective has seen it as a year of growth. Through creativity and hard work from our committed staff and volunteers, we have emerged not only intact, but have had a greater impact in the communities we serve. We are pleased to share these insights in our recently published 2019-2020 Bicycle Collective Annual Report.

Open Shop

Open-Shop has returned! As of Wednesday, July 7th, we are now operating our (DIY) Open-Shop program by appointment. 

 

Our bike shop is different compared to other shops in the area. At the Bicycle Collective we’re about education above all so we put the wrench in your hand. We won't do the work for you, but we'll help you to complete almost any bike-related project; there’s absolutely no experience needed! Whether you’re an old hand at the wrench or laying hands on a drivetrain for the first time, we can help you out, as hands-on or hands-off as you want.

Use of the shop is $5 per half-hour, or free to members.

Phoenix Hansen joined the team this year but is no stranger to the shop. He was a regular volunteer during youth open shop and could be found in the shop building bikes on volunteer days. In his spare time Phoenix can be found wrenching on project cars and generally being stoked on bikes.

Kira Johnson originally moved to Provo as a student at BYU. During her student years, she didn’t have a car and out of necessity was commuting by bike. She found a lot of mental relief from her bike rides and came to associate her commutes as a form of therapy. As she consistently commuted, she became aware of the lack of bicycle infrastructure and sought for ways to add her voice to those advocating for safe streets. As a result, she got involved with BikeWalk Provo and Provo Bicycle Collective. After volunteering with PBC for a few months, she was offered a position to coordinate programs. She ran the Women/Trans/Femme (WTF) Night and Youth Programs from December 2017 to May 2019. 

After graduating from BYU with a degree in Geography, she moved across the country to Waynesboro, Virginia, a charming little city at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the Shenandoah Valley. There she worked as a city planner for about 2 years. 

Kira is excited to be back at Provo Bicycle Collective, a place that feels like home. She loves the Provo community and is stoked to reconnect with all the great folks in the area. Apart from loving commuting by bike, Kira enjoys cross-country skiing, roller skating, backpacking, bike touring, wearing sweaters, eating ethnic foods, gardening, and doing all things with her pup, Otis.

I started pedaling passionately after life changing hip surgeries. Mountain biking restored my ability to get back in the mountains and I discovered a new found love and respect for the bicycle machine. I started volunteering at the Ogden BC in 2017 because I wanted to share my love for biking, to be a service to others, and be my own mechanic. Professionally, I’m a successful restauranteur and executive chef. When I’m not in my kitchens, I enjoy helping others, flying, climbing, mountaineering, traveling, bluegrass festivals and, of course, riding my bikes.
