Meet our staff!

Open Shop

Open Shop has been temporarily discontinued due to COVID-19 concerns. We will reevaluate that position January 1, 2020. Thank you for your patience. 

Want to fix your own bicycle?  During Open Shop hours, we have up to four workbenches of professional-grade bike tools available for public use.  With the guidance of a staff mechanic, even those who have never picked up a wrench before can learn how to repair a flat tire, replace a cable, or even give their bike a full tune-up.  

Cost is $10 per hour or free with a Bicycle Collective membership.

With the help of our wonderful volunteers, the Provo and Ogden collectives are pleased to announce their first overnight bike trip of the season.  It will take place Friday and Saturday March 24-25th.  More details can be found at the Facebook event page.

From the page:

"Planned costs for this trip will be $5 per person, this covers the causeway toll and camping. We will be leaving from the causeway parking lot at 4 pm.

There will be touring classes given at the Ogden Bicycle collective and the Provo Bicycle collective earlier that week. As with any great bicycle tour we will play things by ear. There is likely to be some fun rides around the island. If you can't make the initial 4pm ride please contact someone at the collective. We will be having a later ride to accommodate you.

This is family friendly. The causeway is about 7 miles long. We will also have a sag wagon available for any assistance for riders. Please do not let lack of gear be the reason you don't give it a try. Please contact one of the hosts or attend the touring classes if you are curious about gear, someone will have something to loan if it is needed.

If touring is something you are interested in then feel free to join this group. https://www.facebook.com/groups/utahbiketouring/ We do a couple trips a year and most are fairly easy."

The North American Handmade Bike Show is coming to Salt Lake City this weekend!

One thing is for sure, this show will be bike nerd heaven.  Companies as large as Shimano and as small as Saltair Cycles will be here showcasing their stuff.  Come see the awesome bicycles and components your fellow Americans (and possibly Canadians) are making!
Free event tickets will be given to those who volunteer with us at the Bicycle Valet.
Join us for a fun alleycat/klunker ride Friday at 6pm at the show site.

Kids Bike Giveaways

OBC partners with community organizations to give bikes to kids in the community. OBC does Kid’s Bike Giveaways throughout the year with a large giveaway around the holidays at the end of the year. With the help of volunteers we work to refurbish kid’s bikes that have been donated to us and try to match kids with their dream bikes.

Basic Bike Mechanic 101

Basic Bike Mechanic 101 Classes are currently offered every Thursday night at 5:00 pm on Facebook Live. Everyone is welcome and the classes are free. Each week we focus on a different component of the bike, so the classes can be taken stand-alone or in series. 

Watch the classes on Facebook Live to be able to ask our mechanics questions, or watch the videos any time on our Facebook page!

The SLC Bicycle Collective has changed its Sales and DIY hours to the following:

Sales and DIY hours are times when anyone can come in to purchase a bike, work on their own bike project, or drop off donations.

All other programming hours remain the same.

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!

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?

Only the top 0.5% of nonprofits listed on Guidestar earn this award. We got it for our transparency; everything you need to know to be confident that Bicycle Collective is a well-run nonprofit organization is listed on our Guidestar page. There, you'll find what problems we're trying to solve, how we plan to solve them, how we measure success, and so much more.

St. George Bicycle Collective - Bike Sale Appointments

We want to be open to serve our clients and customers, while also encouraging social distancing to limit the spread of the Coronavirus in our community.

So, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with us

Here’s how easy it is:

  • Browse our selection of refurbished on our website at https://bicyclecollective.org/st-george. Make sure to note the make and model of the bike you’re interested in and we’ll set up a time that’s convenient for both of us so you can test it out. If you don’t see what you need, give us a call and we’ll try to help you out.
  • Set up an appointment for a test ride Tuesday - Friday, 10 am - 6 pm, Saturday 9:30 am - 2 pm by contacting us in any of the following ways.
    • By phone: 661-917-7140
    • By email:
    • Message our Facebook page.
  • We’ll set aside time to help fit the bike to you and answer any questions. We ask that you be prompt so we can help folks in a timely manner. If there’s a line, please stand 6’ away from the person in front of you.
  • Our staff will wear gloves when we handle the bikes, and we’ll be practicing good hand washing hygiene--washing before and after we help each customer. We recommend you do the same, and we’ll sanitize the contact surfaces of each bike before and after your test ride.
  • When you decide to purchase a bike from us, we accept credit cards, Apple/Google Pay, or we can email an invoice (sorry, no VenMo). Contactless payments are much less susceptible to viral transmission! Once you’re all paid up, you’re good to go.

If you want to help us out but you don’t need to buy a bike, consider purchasing a gift card (which will be available soon) to use when we’re able to reopen. You’ll get an additional 10% off your purchase when you use that gift card as a thanks for supporting us through this tough time.  Additionally, please consider donating disinfectants such as Lysol Wipes.

We value our DIY shop hours immensely, but it is currently unwise to host them. Soon we will be announcing a Service & Repairs department so we can help keep your bike rolling smoothly. We recognize that doesn’t do much to help folks who relied on our Work Trade programs to keep rolling, so we’re making Service Vouchers available to help cover the costs of repairs for those who can’t afford it, click the link here to pay it forward.

For the safety of our staff we are open by appointment only

Masks are required at all times.

When you arrive: please ring the bell and wait 6ft. (one bicycle length) from the door. A staff member will answer to assist you.

Shopping for Bicycles

Shopping for refurbished bikes? Schedule a time with us and we'll do our best to help you find what you're looking for. We can accommodate one group of up to two people per appointment.

Please include either a description of a bike from our online showroom or your height and what sort of bike you're looking for and we'll have one ready for you to test ride. We allow test riding up to 3 bikes per appointment. Test ride appointments are 25 minutes long with a 5 minute window at the end to allow staff to sanitize high-touch surfaces and wash their hands in between appointments. If you feel you need more time than one appointment allows, consider booking consecutive appointments.

You are required to properly wear a mask at all times while in the shop, no exceptions.

Note: If you are inquiring about our Bikes for Goodwill program, please call us at 801.328.2453

Shopping for Parts

You are required to properly wear a mask at all times while in the shop, no exceptions.

As of 7 Oct. 2020: Due to nationwide supply-chain shortages of vital bicycle parts like tubes, tires, chains, cables, etc., we are out of stock of many essential bike parts. We appreciate your patience and understanding.

Donations: Tuesday - Saturday 12-6

NO APPOINTMENT NECESSARY, BUT MORE THAN 5 BIKES AT ONE TIME MUST BE APPROVED AHEAD OF TIME. PLEASE CALL OUR SHOP AT 801-328-2453 BEFORE YOU COME TO DONATE.

We have limited storage space, and calling to verify a large donation of bicycles helps us prepare space.

PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE DONATIONS WHEN WE AREN’T OPEN.

What may seem like a convenient move for you creates a lot more work for us.

PLEASE DO YOUR BEST TO CLEAN YOUR DONATIONS OF VISIBLE DEBRIS BEFORE DONATING. WHY?

Donating extremely dirty bikes (covered in mud, dirt, grass or hay) hinders our processing abilities and puts the “dirty work” on us. Tip: you can clean your donation quickly with a garden hose or a household rag and some glass cleaner.

WE DO NOT DO PICK-UPS.

WE ACCEPT:

-All types of bikes (road, hybrid, mountain, bmx, tandem, etc)

-All sizes of bikes (adult, child)

-Bike parts of any kind

-Tools of any kind

-Accessories in good condition (helmets, bike pumps, lights, locks, racks, baskets)

-Gently used cycling clothing and shoes

-Old (clean) t-shirts and dish towels that we can turn into rags for our shop

WE DO NOT ACCEPT THE FOLLOWING ITEMS:

-Scooters

-Tag-a-Long bikes

-Anything motorized

-Exercise equipment or bike trainers

-Jogging strollers

-Car racks that are missing pieces (if we can’t sell it as a fully functioning rack, please do not donate it). We may refuse a car rack donation if we do not have the space to house it.

-Trailers that are missing hitches (if we can’t sell it as a fully functioning trailer, please do not donate it). We may refuse a trailer rack donation if we do not have the space to house it.

As a general guideline, we accept bicycles and bicycle related items. These items best serve our mission and the work we do.
