Judith Rognli

St. George Bicycle Collective Director

Judith Rognli began riding her bike to school in first grade and has never stopped since. She moved to St. George from Germany in 2015. For her, the Bicycle Collective is the perfect place to share her passion for bicycling and to be an active part of the growing bicycling community in St. George. She loves to empower and encourage people to use their bikes as their form of every day transportation and to learn about bike mechanics. Judith has previously worked as a researcher and university teacher, and she has run volunteer projects and ridden her bike with students in Kyrgyzstan, Germany and other places around the globe. 

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 2018. 

The St. George Bicycle Collective is located in the heart of St. George, right on the Blvd, only half a block West of ancestor square. 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!

Kyle Owens

Shop Facilitator

Kyle has been working with Provo Bicycle Collective since October 2015.  He was one of the first graduates from PBC's Mechanics 101 course.  Kyle has a deep love for mountain biking and the places he is able to explore with his bike.  When the trailes are muddy you might find him cruising around on his road bike.  Kyle is currently a junior in the mechanical engineering program at BYU.  He hopes to help everyone learn about the joys of biking and the service that the PBC can be in helping them more fully appreciate their bike.

Jordan Bartholomew

Shop Facilitator

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.

Provo Bicycle Collective is proud to announce its gift of 27 bikes to Timpanogos Elementary, 2 bikes to Dixon Middle and 2 bikes to Provo High during Provo’s Bike to School week.  Our hope is that these bikes will be given to children who could not otherwise afford one so they too can ride their bikes to school.

These bikes came to Provo Bicycle Collective donated, were refurbished by volunteers, and safety checked by our trained mechanics.  We are always looking for worthy organizations to give bikes to and interested volunteers to fix bikes with us.  Contact with any questions.
