Ikaika Cox

Operations Manager

A Utah County native, I began volunteering at the Provo Bicycle Collective in 2012. After completing a Bachelor’s degree in Literature and Philosophy in 2015, I moved to Boise and began working with the Boise Bicycle Project where I honed my skills as a mechanic and educator. In 2016 I returned to Provo, committed to growing the operation here. I love bicycles because I see them as a vehicle that challenges riders to push themselves and engage their community in a different way. I see the Collective growing and becoming more effective in fostering community impact and growth, and serving as a space in which community members can grow and develop themselves.

The Ogden Bicycle Collective is bringing the immensely successful and popular Bike Prom (put on yearly by the Salt Lake City Bicycle Collective) home to Ogden as Bike Homecoming! We will start the event with a free, easy, no-drop, community bike ride (route TBD) where everyone of all abilities is welcome. This will be followed by a formal dance party held at the Ogden Amphitheater in downtown Ogden with Lavender Vinyl DJing. Everyone is encouraged to dress in their best formal attire for the theme "Enchantment Under the Sea"!

Keep an eye on our website, Facebook page, and the event page for information on ticketing, route info, volunteer opportunities, and more!

The bike ride is free, but tickets will be sold for the dance. All income from this event goes back into supporting the Ogden Bicycle Collective's community programs. Come out for a good time to support bikes and the community!

If you're interested in sponsoring the event or being a vendor, contact Danielle at !

Danielle Stiff, Ogden 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.

Austin Taylor, Provo Director

Austin Taylor began working for Bicycle Collective in 2015 and quickly became Provo's first location director. He's been key in growing Provo Bicycle Collective; giving away nearly 200 more bikes, creating several jobs, and increasing revenues by 300% within in his first year. He is the founder of Provo's Earn-a-Bike program, Jr. Mechanics Certification program, and Goodwill Bikes program. Austin's goal is to build Provo Bicycle Collective into an established, recognizable organization with lasting impact. He is a graduate of BYU's Marriott School of Business and Kennedy Center for International Studies, having studied Nonprofit Management and Latin American Studies. Austin spends his spare time performing music throughout Utah Valley and cycling with his wife Elise.

I love bicycling for transportation, recreation, and pure enjoyment.

I'm currently a Realtor and formerly a Case Manager in the non-profit sector where I learned what a valuable asset the SLC BC is to the residents of City of Salt Lake. Bicycling brings people together and that's exactly what the world needs! 

Seventy lucky children are about to experience the joys of new bike day.

With two giveaways on May 6th and 16th, Provo Bicycle Collective proudly gave away 70 refurbished kids bikes to Utah Foster Care and Boys and Girls Club of Utah County.  These valued nonprofit partners will now distribute our bikes to children who otherwise could not afford one.  Our hope is that these kids will use their bikes often to get to school and nearby social activities.  The staff at Provo Bicycle Collective would like to thank the 100+ volunteers who helped fix these bikes up over the past two weeks.

We're always looking for bicycle and financial donations to help make these giveaways possible.  Please consider donating today to help continue our charitable programs.

As part of our new Youth Program, the Ogden Bicycle Collective is offering limited Mountain Bike Skills Camps! 

Ogden Bicycle Collective's Mountain Bike Skills Camp is designed to teach kids the basics of trail riding. We will discuss body positioning, cornering, trail etiquette, and safety before riding some beginner trails. We will also teach basic trailside maintenance skills to give kids the confidence they need to ride the trails.

In keeping with our mission to serve those who don't have access to bikes and biking, limited scholarships are available upon request.

Click here to complete a scholarship application!

For the class:

  • Youth must bring their own bicycle (unless choosing to rent a bike for the week from us).
  • Please wear clothing suitable for bicycle riding; sunglasses and sunscreen are strongly suggested.
  • Student must be able to ride confidently in a straight line on a bicycle; this is not a camp to teach a child how to ride a bike for the first time.

All camps will be held Monday-Friday from 4:00-6:00 PM.  The first class will meet at the Ogden Bicycle Collective (936 28th Street, Ogden, UT 84403), with following class locations TBD based on class skill levels.

Volunteer Day

Thursdays 12:00-8:00 PM

 6:00 PM: Bike Mechanic 101 Class/Volunteer Mechanic Training

(we are still open for sales, but all workbenches are reserved for volunteer projects)

The mission of the Bicycle Collective is to promote cycling as an effective and sustainable form of transportation and as a cornerstone of a cleaner, healthier, and safer society. The Collective provides refurbished bicycles and educational programs to the community, focusing on children and lower income households.

Volunteers of the Ogden Bicycle Collective ground our culture as a bike shop by the community, for the community. Volunteers are the lifeblood of the OBC; in the shop they enable the Collective to provide goods and services to everyone, including low-income households. Learning bicycle repair, they enrich our community while gaining valuable skills for themselves. Running bicycle valet and other outreach events, they connect local networks and push the boundaries of our services. Taking on other projects with OBC, they use their passions to improve and develop the shop.

Contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Lilly, at or 801-997-0336 to find out more information about current volunteer opportunities or ways to help.

 

Goodwill Bikes

Our Goodwill Bike Program provides adult sized bicycles for free to anyone who can’t afford to purchase one. In order to assess need, we partner with multiple nonprofit and governmental organizations. The process is simple: clients contact partner organizations who refer bike recipients to us. We repair the bikes and schedule an appointment with each recipient. Partnering organizations may require recipients to volunteer at our shops in exchange for the bikes. Please contact one of the below organizations to begin the process for yourself or your client, or call your nearest shop for more information.
