Danielle Fry

Ogden Bicycle Collective Director

Danielle is a long time bicycle commuter, but until stepping into the Ogden Bicycle Collective (OBC), knew very little about bike mechanics.  She began attending the free Bike Mechanic 101 classes, then applied for and was accepted into the first round of OBC's Apprenticeship Program.  After completing the program, Danielle was hired as OBC's Volunteer Coordinator, where she took an active role in helping to develop many of OBC's existing programs.  When the position became available, Danielle was promoted to Director of the Ogden Bicycle Collective.  Danielle has been involved in non-profit work for over a decade, and has seen first-hand how bikes can improve people's lives.  She is proud to be part of a sustainable community organization that works to empower people and promote a healthy lifestyle.

Make biking to your event easy!

We get it; parking at large events is always a struggle.  Luckily, our Bike Valet service encourages event atendees to bike instead of drive.  In 2016, our Bike Valet team parked over 10,000 bikes.  Imagine how many parking spots that cleared up!

Our Shops

FACT: We have strange hours. Luckily they don't change often.

The reason is that the Bicycle Collective is much more than a place to buy an inexpensive used bike/part or get DIY help. While we have designated DIY hours for those personal projects, we also need other exclusive times for Volunteering / Community Service at the Community Bike Shop locations for our core programs such as Earn-a-Bike or working on Bikes for Goodwill Organizations.

You are welcome to call ahead and volunteer for any of these other programs, but please refrain from attempting personal projects at this time -- we don't like turning people away.

Visit our shop specific pages to learn about the hours and programs for your community.

Will Deutschman is a professor of chemistry at Westminster college in Salt Lake City, UT. While his primary love is being in the classroom, mentoring students, when not there he does research in the areas of biochemistry and brewing science. Outside of work, Will is passionate about bicycle transit issues, outdoor recreation, wilderness, and every activity you can imagine that involves non-motorized wheeled transit. He is a daily bike commuter, sometime bike tourer, frequent mountain biker and slightly crazy unicyclist. At Westminster College, he is the faculty liason for the bicycle collective and mentor for the campus beehive.

Lilly joins the Ogden Bike Collective this fall as its new Volunteer Coordinator. Her involvement with the OBC began a year ago, when she stumbled upon the OBC’s free community mechanic classes. Having managed climbing gyms for the last three years, she is jazzed to be focusing on instruction and community building.

Lilly began bike commuting in Seattle, where public transportation and biking are a cheaper and more efficient way to get around the city than driving. Through her experiences and travels in Denmark and Indiana, she awoke to the importance of bike-supportive infrastructure and education to promote bicycling as an effective means of transportation.

She continues to enjoy bike commuting in as many types of challenging weather as possible, and has started mountain biking. Other bike-related topics she’s interested in are bike touring, street fashion, upcycling, and eco-friendly outdoor gear.

The Ogden Bike Collective is happy to announce its first installment of the Bicycle Mechanic Apprenticeship Program (Bike MAP) of 2017! The Bike MAP program is designed for anyone who desires to land a job as a bicycle mechanic or anyone wanting to pursue advanced bike repair skills for any other reason.  Starting now will put anyone in a prime position to gain employment as bike shops start hiring again for the busy season.

The OBC's Bike MAP program has already landed 6 graduates in mechanic jobs at bike shops. Apprentices have the opportunity to train with professional bike mechanics to develop the skills they need to land positions in Ogden's burgeoning bicycle industry. Under the supervision of professional staff, apprentices will apply themselves to 8 weeks of intensive study, following a customized curriculum based on the Park Tool School courses. Over the course of the apprenticeship, participants will also have the opportunity for hands-on learning while shadowing mechanics during open shop hours at the Collective.  Apprentices should be willing to commit to 5-10 hours per week for this course.

To find out more about the apprenticeship program and whether you'd be a good fit, come by the shop during open hours (Tue-Wed 12-7, Thur 12-8, and Fri-Sat 12-6), call 801-997-0336, or email Danielle at . If you'd like to apply for a slot in the program, print out the attached application and bring it to the shop by January 21st.
