Women, Trans, Femme Night

A safe and supportive learning environment for those who identify!

Bicycle maintenance has traditionally been an overwhelmingly (cis)male-dominated area. It is our goal to help teach individuals who have been marginalized or intimidated in this setting to be knowledgeable and confident working on their bikes. The Salt Lake City Bicycle Collective holds Women Trans Femme (WTF) Night in the shop every Wednesday from 5:30 - 8:00 PM. This program offers a safe and supportive learning environment for those who identify to fix their own bikes, buy bikes, and/or volunteer in the shop. 

Use of the shop for DIY projects is $5 per hour, or free to members.

This space is for:

Anyone who identifies as female, transgender, femme, genderqueer, trans-masculine, trans-feminine, or feels that their socialization or treatment as a woman, transperson*, femme has impeded their participation in bicycle mechanics.

Women: A person who identifies as a woman.

Trans: Transgender, genderqueer, gender non-conforming, gender creative, anyone whose gender identity is fluid, transgressive, and/or transitioning.

Femme: A gender identity in which a person of any gender embodies a feminine appearance, expression, or identity.

If you are not WTF identified, BECOME AN ALLY:

  • Respect the space: Come during our regular open shop hours.
  • Respect People: During our regular open shop hours, treat all female & trans* folks as you would any other person (don’t assume they’re less knowledgeable, don’t call them “sweety,” and NEVER take a wrench out of their hand!)
  • Get Educated: Learn about the issues facing women and trans* communities.
  • Educate others: About why and how to be an ally!

This program was implemented with assistance from BICAS.org and other WTF program models across the nation.
