Open Stage at the St. George Bicycle Collective!

Wednesday, May 2 
Sign ups for Open Stage start 6:30 PM 
Performances 7 PM - 9 PM


+++ Show your musical and poetic talents! 
+++ Wrench on your bike or help us fix bikes while listening to your local artists! 
+++ Ride your bike and get a free drink! 
+++ $3 suggested donation at the door, FREE if you are performing!
+++ RSVP on Facebook

We believe that 30 minutes on the bike each day is enough to unwind, feel free, and is crucial to our happiness. So why not build a nice routine? 

EVERY WEDNESDAY 12 PM - 1 PM 


We will ride from the Collective to Sandtown Park - just down the street - for BYO lunch picnic. We hope to provide a space for folks to get outside and socialize for 45 mins during their workday. Everyone's gotta eat lunch, why not do it together under the red rock? It's our intention to keep this under an hour so commuters and 9-5ers can get away from the desk on their lunch break, stretch their legs, and chat with other Collective supporters. We will roll out from the Collective at 12:10p and leave the park to be back to our respective work places by 1p. 

This ride is family friendly. Pack your little ones in a trailer and enjoy lunch with us while they play in the park. If you bring young kids on their own bikes, you must be comfortable with them riding along Diagonal street and on a slight uphill grade. Everyone must wear helmets!

Please bring your own lunch, water, flat tire repair, etc. We hope to see you out there!

Eagle Scout Projects for the Ogden Bicycle Collective

The Ogden Bicycle Collective would be happy to be the beneficiary of your Eagle Scout Project!

Please read our general Eagle Scout Project page first.

BIKE DRIVES:

The most common project is hosting a bike drive.  The scout is responsible for planning and implementing project logistics and coordinating volunteers to gather unused or unwanted bicycles.  The scout and volunteers will then pick up bikes (a large trailer is helpful), and arrange with Bicycle Collective staff to drop them off at our Community Bike Shop.  The scout and volunteers will also need to help us sort and organize donated bikes.

These bikes will be refurbished and given away to homeless, refugees, and low-income individuals; sold to fund our programs; or stripped and recycled. The average project should plan to yield between 50 and 150 bicycles.

Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at or 801-997-0336 to find out if a bike drive is a current need and arrange a time to discuss your Eagle Project!

OTHER PROJECTS:

Eagle Scouts are encouraged to present other projects they feel would be helpful to the Ogden Bicycle Collective, however they are subject to staff approval.

Some current needs that may be fitting for an Eagle Scout Project:

-Obtaining funding for, and planning and constructing of a handicap/wheelchair ramp (this would include researching applicable ordinances and regulations, including ADA guidelines, and getting appropriate approvals)

-Helping to obtain funding for and planning additional storage for the Community Bike Shop (this would include researching applicable ordinances and regulations, and getting appropriate approvals)

-Organizing a donation drive based off of our donation wish list and any additional needs identified by staff

Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at or 801-997-0336 to discuss your Eagle Scout Project Proposal and get approval before completing.

It's our 10th annual Ogden Bike Swap, and to celebrate

EVERYTHING is 10% off the entire day!

We'll have a ton of refurbished bikes, new and used components, accessories, and more! Come by for some great deals and to support a great cause. All proceeds help support our bike giveaway and education programs.

This is also the only time of year where we will sell your bike on consignment. If you have a bike you'd like to sell with us, fill out the Google Form here.

Be sure to follow our Facebook Event Page to get some sneak peeks at what we'll have for sale and any other activities the day of!

Hey everyone! We believe that 30 minutes on the bike each day is enough to unwind, feel free, and is crucial to our happiness. So why not build a nice routine? We've been wanting to get a shop ride started for some time here, and thought it'd be nice to keep it simple and start small. 

We will ride from the Collective to Sandtown Park - just down the street - for BYO lunch picnic. We hope to provide a space for folks to get outside and socialize for 45 mins during their workday. Everyone's gotta eat lunch, why not do it together under the red rock? It's our intention to keep this under an hour so commuters and 9-5ers can get away from the desk on their lunch break, stretch their legs, and chat with other Collective supporters. We will roll out from the Collective at 12:15p and leave the park to be back to our respective work places by 1p. 

Please bring your own lunch, water, flat tire repair, etc. We hope to see you out there!

PBC Gives Free Bikes to 53 Kids

Written by

On Saturday, March 24th, dozens of children lined up to receive a free bicycle from Provo Bicycle Collective.

Within one hour, PBC had given all 53 bikes to children for free. 

Our hope is that each bike recipient uses his or her bike to get to school each day and continues that habit into adulthood. This way, we can reduce traffic, clean Utah's air, and create a healthier population.

We need your support in this cause!

Donate money or bikes today. $30 provides a bike for a child in need! Please give today!
