The Ogden Bicycle Collective and Ogden City Arts is pleased to announce the inaugural, Bike Homecoming! We will start the event with a free, easy, no-drop community bike ride beginning at Union Station, where everyone of all abilities is welcome. Festivities begin at 6PM. The route will ride east on 25th street, past many of the First Friday Art Stroll galleries. It then weaves through the Junction, past the Temple and Adventure Park, under the Ogden Arch, and eventually back to the Ogden Amphitheater—where the party begins. DJ KyWizard from Lavender Vinyl will provide the music, you provide the dance moves.

Everyone is encouraged to dress in their best formal attire befitting of Homecoming.

The community bike ride is free, but tickets will be sold for the dance. Ticket sales and other donations from Bike Homecoming go to supporting the Ogden Bicycle Collective's community programs. Come out for a good time to support bikes, cyclists, and the community!

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.

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.

 

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 the below organizations to begin the process for yourself or your client, or call your nearest shop for more information.

Get access to the tools and help you need!

At the Ogden Bicycle Collective we’re about education above all, so we put the wrench in your hand. During open shop hours our professional mechanics walk you through anything and everything you need to keep your bike running smoothly and safely, and there’s absolutely no experience needed! Whether you’re an old hand at the wrench or laying hands on a drivetrain for the first time, we’ll assess your needs and be as hands on or hands off as you want. We charge $5 per half hour of shop use, but members get full use of the shop for free. If you're unable to afford necessary repairs, ask about alternate ways to pay—no one is turned away for inability to pay.

Open Shop Hours:

Tue-Wed 12:00-8:00 PM

Fri-Sat 12:00-7:00 PM

Find your perfect ride!

We carry a large and rotating selection of used and fully refurbished bikes of all kinds. Our favorites are the rigid mountain bikes from the 80s and 90s that we convert to comfy commuters for everyday use, but our shelves can be stocked with everything from feather-light road bikes to last year’s full suspension cross country machine. Because everything we carry is donated to us, we never really know what’s going to be on the shelf from week to week. You can check out our stock by stopping by the shop!

The best part about buying a bike or parts from us? Your purchase helps to support our other, free community and educational programs!
