The Ogden Bicycle Collective and Ogden City Arts is pleased to announce the inaugural, Bike Homecoming! We will start the event with a free, easy, no-drop community bike ride beginning at Union Station, where everyone of all abilities is welcome. Festivities begin at 6PM. The route will ride east on 25th street, past many of the First Friday Art Stroll galleries. It then weaves through the Junction, past the Temple and Adventure Park, under the Ogden Arch, and eventually back to the Ogden Amphitheater—where the party begins. DJ KyWizard from Lavender Vinyl will provide the music, you provide the dance moves.

Everyone is encouraged to dress in their best formal attire befitting of Homecoming.

The community bike ride is free, but tickets will be sold for the dance. Ticket sales and other donations from Bike Homecoming go to supporting the Ogden Bicycle Collective's community programs. Come out for a good time to support bikes, cyclists, and the community!

Kaden Coil-Pittman

Youth Education Coordinator

Kaden Coil-Pittman joined the Salt Lake Bicycle Collective team in the summer of 2017. Before SLBC, Kaden taught kindergarten and designed/directed a STEM program tailored to the needs of K-3 students. It was here that Kaden gained his passion for education and empowering youth. Kaden is also extremely dedicated to the nonprofit community and works through these organizations to remove barriers from marginalized individuals. SLBC provides a space where both of Kaden's passions can merge. Although Kaden is new to bicycle mechanics, he remains invested in teaching new skills to youth so that they can further their passion for cycling and become self-starting bicycle ambassadors. 

The Bicycle Collective is excited to announce we are hiring our first Director of Development (DD). The DD will report directly to the Executive Director (ED) and assist the ED and the organization as a whole with our annual fundraising, grant writing, and community cultivation goals across 5 locations in Utah.

The Bicycle Collective is in the middle of an exciting period of rapid growth, expanding the number of locations we have around the state, the number of programs we offer to the communities we serve, and the amount of revenue we are able to raise in pursuit of forwarding our mission. In the past year we have experienced a revenue increase of over 25% and anticipate similar numbers over the coming years. In light of this, we have reached a turning point and the ED and Board of Directors have determined the timing is right to create a position in the organization to manage and encourage that growth.

The Collective prides itself on its managerial and operational transparency and seeks a candidate who holds firm to those values. In that spirit we are announcing the position as one that is new to our organizational structure and, as such, one that will be guided, developed, and expanded by the right candidate. We are starting the position at 20-25 hours per week, anticipating that the DD will grow revenue streams sufficiently to justify a full time position and even hire additional staff as budgets allow.

The Collective has a demonstrated track record of sustainable growth over the past few years, fueled by a unique organizational model that empowers employees to explore beyond their job descriptions, rewards success appropriately and proportionally, and treats failures or mistakes as a necessary part of growth and opportunities for learning. The ideal DD candidate will be one who sees and capitalizes on opportunities, works well as a team with the ED and all Location Directors, and is self-motivated to improve both the organization as a whole and their own, personal situation.

Owen Geary

Mechanic & Open Shop Manager

Hailing from both Northern California and Western New York the raw beauty of Utah is what drew him here. Owen started as a volunteer at the collective in 2012 and has worked as Valet Coordinator, Mechanic, Open Shop Manager, or has been a Keylist volunteer throughout the years. In his spare time he enjoys playing with Beehive Bike Polo, working on his 80's BMW, and mountain biking. 

Mollie Bourdos

Head Mechanic

Mollie Bourdos began volunteering at the Salt Lake City Bicycle Collective in June of 2015, after deciding she needed a change from her career in social work.  In just a little over two years, she was hired, and promoted, to the head mechanic position.  She is committed to getting more people cycling for their commute.  As a result, she has a 30 mile round trip commute that she tries to maintain year around.  She is extremely dedicated to the collective.  She seeks to help as many people feel confident on two wheels as possible, and is passionate about empowering people to learn about their bikes.

Amy Nguyen Wiscombe

Volunteer and Program Coordinator

Amy Nguyen Wiscombe was born and raised in Logan, Utah, where fun could only be found in the great outdoors. Prior to joining the Salt Lake City Bicycle Collective team in June 2017, Amy coordinated a statewide AmeriCorps Program for Utah Campus Compact (UCC). Her time at UCC truly solidified her commitment to community service and engagement. Amy is especially motivated and invested in working with underserved and underrepresented populations in her community to provide access to bikes and bike education. In her spare time, she enjoys rock climbing, riding her road bike, and seeking the best Vietnamese cuisine - outside of her mother’s house, of course.    

Sam Warrick

Location Director 

Sam Warrick's relationship with bikes began as a kid, when he bike toured throughout the desert of Southern Utah and eventually all over the country. He realized when he attended Utah State University that bikes have much more potential than just a piece of recreational gear. During this time he completed three Americorps terms of service with Aggie Blue Bikes, building and repairing the university's fleet of loaner bikes and teaching students the science of bike repair. After graduating, he worked for two years as the shop manager. Sam has been using this knowledge and experience to help make an impact in the Salt Lake valley since joining the Collective in 2016.

We're excited to announce that the Bicycle Collective is on the verge of opening its 5th location in St. George! Our group of extremely hard working volunteers have been building up programs in the region for a couple of years and working with the City of St. George to find a location in the heart of the city to allow us to expand our services to more residents of southern Utah. Through a generous offer from the city we now have the opportunity to make it happen!

We are hiring a full time Location Director to design, implement, and manage the community bike shop and the Bicycle Collective's core programs in a way that will sustain itself for years to come. This is a position for a self-driven and ambitious person ready for serious professional growth in a well-established organization that is growing steadily. The ideal candidate is one who flourishes in an environment with minimal direct supervision and enjoys coming up with creative solutions to challenges as they arise because while the Bicycle Collective is built on a very solid foundation, the truth is the field we operate in is new and being crafted by organizations like ours as we grow.

Interested candidates: check out the attached job description and program description. Instructions to apply are included in the job description. Please send any questions to

Ride on!

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.
