Shawn Teigen, Treasurer

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.

Jacob Clarke

Juvenile Detention Mechanic Certification Instructor

I am from Mission Viejo, California and am studying Molecular Biology at BYU in preparation for medical school. Biking has always been a passion of mine, and I began volunteering at the collective last year. I have now been hired to teach bike mechanic classes with PBC at the Slate Canyon Youth Detention Center. Our classes help the youth by giving them the skills they need to fix their own bikes and to be hired as a bike mechanic after being released from the detention center. When I am not at the collective, you can find me playing soccer, going surfing, or riding my bike.

 

Starting Wednesday, January 17, we will be getting together from 2:30PM till 9:30PM to fix bikes, learn and have fun!

We are changing our schedule in order to be able to accommodate students who may want to come in after school. 

No prior knowledge about bikes needed, we are happy to teach you what you need to know!
Volunteers help fixing kids bikes and bikes for people in need of transportation ('Goodwill Bikes'), organize the shop, sort bikes, etc. etc.
Kids and Youth are welcome! Please bring a guardian if you are under 16. Groups of more than 4 people please call ahead! Thanks!

 

Kira Johnson

Program Manager and Mechanic

Kira is currently studying Urban Planning at BYU, and is especially passionate about the active transportation elements in a city. Through past jobs, Kira has become a professional at cleaning bathrooms, vacuuming, weeding, mowing...needless to say, she's excited to add the useful (and enjoyable) skills involved with fixing bicycles to that list. Kira's ideal day would involve waking up early, having plenty of moments to stare at the mountains in all their glory--and perhaps even be in those mountains, completing all the daily errands on her bike, receiving a handwritten letter in the mail, and having a quality moment with any of her dear, dear friends. Kira is excited to start the Women's Volunteer Hours at PBC and is stoked to see more lady-friends out on their bikes!

PBC Starts New Volunteer Hours

Written by

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 Hours

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 anytime between 4 and 7pm whether you have experience with bicycles or not.

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 couldn’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!

Current volunteer hours for this program are Mondays from 4pm to 7pm.   Drop in anytime during those hours to join.
