Code of Conduct Pledge

The Bicycle Collective is a place of learning and community development for anyone interested in bicycles. We strive to accommodate, understand, and celebrate the cultural backgrounds and ethnic differences of everyone who walks through our doors. Doing so means that we may need to leave some of our personal views at the door. We are not a political organization and we do not promote a political agenda. We advocate by providing a supportive environment for anything to do with biking and bike repair. We promote equality mobility in every city we serve.

When representing the Bicycle Collective community as a volunteer or employee,

We pledge to:

  • Be anti-racist. We endeavor to address any displays of injustice and any statements of untruth that disparage people based on their race or identity. If a derogatory or insensitive conversation develops, We will reject it and encourage others to do the same.
  • Leave our political opinions at the door. We will not engage in or advocate for a specific political agenda. We will refrain from political speech while at the Bicycle Collective and while representing the Bicycle Collective.
  • Honor the dignity of all individuals. We recognize that maintaining a respectful environment that celebrates the diversity of life in our community is paramount to fulfilling the Bicycle Collective’s mission. We will carry that sentiment through all our interactions with our leadership, board, employees, volunteers, clients, and customers.

In pledging ourselves to these values, we ask that all involved with the Bicycle Collective — leaders, volunteers, board members, supporters, staff — commit to taking action to make the world a more equitable place.

We have a lot of work to do — join us.

YOSlive

Hey Everyone!

Youth Open Shop: Live is a weekly livestream where we do our best to answer your questions and help you learn more about bikes! Currently we stream every week on

Tuesday @ 5:00 p.m. (Utah time)

 Every week we go over a simple topic about bike repair, bike tools, bike riding, or bike facts. We do these live so that if you would like to ask a bike related question we can go over them right then and there! Any bike related questions are welcome! Whether we are covering that topic in the stream or not, we would love to answer your bike related questions!

Safety Rules

Now, if you would like to participate, we ask that everyone you follow a few simple safety rules:

Internet Safety

1. Be Excellent to Each Other

Always treat other people online with respect! Don't engage people who want to make you angry or are trying to start arguments.

2. Guard Your Privacy

You can always post anonymously if you would like. If you do post with your name be sure to only include your first name, last initial, and general area where your from. (Example: Melody T. West Haven, Utah)

3. Bike Photos

We would love to show pictures of your bike problems and help you learn how to fix them! You can email your bike photos to  but there are a two important rules: Have it be against a plain background like a wall, your yard, or the pavement; and don't show any personal information, such as someone's face, your house number, the license plate of a car, or anything else like that.

4. Ask Permission

If you are younger than 18 years old, always ask your parent or guardian if it is alright that you submit anything over the internet.

Safety Rules

1. Use the Right Tool

Make sure to find out what tool is best for the job and how to use it correctly. A wrench is not a hammer, and a knife can be dangerous if you try to use it as a screwdriver!

2. Ask for Help

If you need help lifting or holding something, using a tool you aren't comfortable with, or don't know what to do next, always ask for help!

3. Keep Safety in Mind

Always keep your safety and the safety of those around you as the highest priority when working on and riding bikes! Stay safe!

OBC Building Improvements

Written by

Happy New Year! 

We were temporarily closed for some building construction. Our foundation had been slowly settling. We received some bids and BASECO was hired to stabilize the front of the shop. They were nice enough to offer us a discount when the repair costs were higher than anticipated. Corbin and his staff were all stellar to work with and we would recommend BASECO for all foundation repairs. 

While the foundation was being repaired, our staff and core volunteers were busy remodeling the front of the shop. We're back open and our space has improved significantly. Check out photos of our newly remodeled retail area. 

Thanks to Andy at Custom Store Fixtures LLC. for donating a pallet of Slatwall to the shop. Special thanks to all of the volunteers that helped us undertake this huge project! We're looking forward to a great 2020 season!

Bike Prom

SLC Bike Prom 2019, is happening!! Tickets are now on sale! We're riding and dancing on Saturday, June 8th. This is an event for all folks of all ages.

Bike Prom is SLC Bicycle Collective's annual fundraising event. Don your fanciest prom duds, grab a date (or group or come solo!) and join a thousand friendly riders on a slow ride around SLC streets. The ride starts at Fairmont Park (1040 E. Sugarmont Dr.) and will end at the Tracy Aviary (589 E. 1300 S.) where we'll dance the night away!

Get Tickets

FAQs

Is this a family friendly event?

Yes! Bring the kids so they can enjoy the ride and the party at Tracy Aviary. Be advised, if kids are to ride their own bikes they will need to be able to keep pace with the group and police escort. The party tickets are priced per individual. We will have a subsidized ticket for kids under 16 years of age; the year they decide to commute the fun way or the other way.

Does it cost to participate in the group ride?

No, but donations are always appreciated! The party at Tracy Aviary is what the tickets are for if you choose to join us beyond the ride, which you should. The party is always a blast!

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

No minimum age to attend; we encourage youth under the age of 16 to be accompanied by an adult. You must bring a valid ID if you plan to purchase alcohol to be consumed at the event at Tracy Aviary.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

We encourage bicycles for the ride from Fairmont Park to Tracy Aviary, but other modes of human-powered transportation are acceptable. There will be a bicycle valet for those staying for the ticketed event. If you must drive to Tracy Aviary to join us for the party, you can park in any available parking spots at Liberty Park.

If you are coming from the Sugarhouse area and require a vehicle to get you here, there is plenty of parking for you to leave your car at Fairmont Park. You will just have to ride back there at the end of the group ride or party to get your vehicle; no overnight parking at either park.

What can I bring into the event?

No outside food or drinks allowed. Both will be available for purchase once inside.

What should I wear?

It's called Bike Prom, so dig out your old dresses and suits or maybe that bridesmaid dress that was worn that one time - shorts, suspenders, and a bowtie; Sure! Some go retro and come in light blue frilly tuxedos or in flapper dresses and zuit suits. Visit your favorite secondhand store and you'll probably find what you're looking for! Your outfit, your call, just make it fun and enjoy the people watching!

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Happy Bike Month, everyone! We're hosting some group rides for the month of May to celebrate bikes and the butts (and people) that sit on them. Check out the schedule below and note the last ride will be on Friday, May 31st where we'll end at the shop for a fun, FREE, concert!
