Danielle Stiff

Volunteer Coordinator

I moved to Ogden with my husband last year. The mountains, seasons, and accessibility of so many incredible natural landscapes meant that there was no question of whether we'd love it here.

After graduating, I began a career in Human Resources. I also began snowboarding at the same time. After a few years the call of the mountains and adventure was strong, and I left my office based career. In the years since I've taught English in South Korea (where I met my husband), worked as a Snowboard Instructor, and guided people through a Glow Worm cave in New Zealand.

I've commuted by bike on and off all my life, and am loving learning and practicing bike mechanics so far. I'm excited to be working in a position that serves our environment and community, and helps others to do the same through volunteering and providing the brilliant programs offered at the Bike Collective.

Thanks to Utah DOT and Move Utah, we're working with the Ogden Downtown Alliance and Ogden City to offer Bike Valet for the Heritage Festival 150th Anniversary May 9-11th!

Come hangout with the rest of the community and celebrate the 150th anniversary of the completion of the transcontinental railroad, one of the most significant historical events to happen right here.  We're looking for almost 30 volunteers to help provide bike valet.  All volunteers will receive a free UTA transit pass the day they volunteer and some OBC swag.  Bike Valet Crew volunteers will receive member benefits at the Ogden shop for the month of June (member benefits include free shop time and 10% off all in-shop purchases).  Sign up for a shift here.

Check out the Golden Spike 150 website for a complete list of all the events going on throughout the month and over the three day festival.  It will be busy and parking will be sparse, so ride your bikes and let us take care of them while you enjoy the festivities!

Come celebrate 10 years of the Ogden Bicycle Collective with us!

We'll start the day with a community poker bike ride at 4:00 PM at the shop. The route is a secret, but we promise it will be an easy to moderate 7 or so miles that you can take your time on.

It's not about who finishes first, but who has the best poker hand at the end of the ride!

We'll meet back at the shop at 6:00 PM for a night of food, music, prizes AND a wacky mechanic's challenge!

Join us for this family friendly party and fundraiser to celebrate our 10th birthday!

We're asking for a $5 donation to enter the ride and party!

2018 was a record setting year for us! We saw an 8% increase in the number of individual volunteers who helped us out, and who put in 14% more hours compared to last year. Those may seem like boring numbers, but they directly translate to us being able to give out over twice as many kids bikes, three times as many adult bikes, and teach three times as many kids how to work on bikes during Youth Open Shop Night! Not to mention help us keep the shop running and all of our programs afloat.

We could not do what we do without support from the people like you! Whether you bought something from us, donated to us, volunteered with us, or just told someone about us, it's because of you that we were able to set new records in 2018.

And like anyone who is reflecting on the past year and looking into the next, we are excited to keep growing and improving to do even more in 2019!

Thank you all and Happy New Year

Starting the first of the year, Youth Open Shop Night will be moving to Tuesdays!  All youth ages 10 to 17 are welcome to come volunteer, participate in Earn-A-Bike, or work on their own bikes.

We've also got some great program improvements coming your way, including ways to build your skills and earn buttons for your apron.  I guess you might call it "Bike Scouts"?

Come hangout with our new Program Coordinator, Bryce starting Tuesday, January 8th from 4:00-6:00 PM!

This year we're participating in the Ogden Weber Community Action Partnership Community Christmas to give bikes to kids in Weber and Davis Counties!  This is a rad event that hopes to serve over 3,500 local kids!  From the website: "The event features a Christmas Carnival for the kids, and a shopping area where parents can pick out gifts for their kids at no-cost to them".

If you'd like to help, you can sign up to help at one of our bike build events or to help us transport bikes here.

If you'd like to find more out about the event or want to help out the day-of, head on over the the Community Christmas website here!  We're so thankful to be a part of such an amazing event!

In order to allow our staff and volunteers to spend time with their loved ones over the holidays, OBC will be closed November 22nd thru 24th and December 24th thru January 1st.  We apologize for any inconvenience and we look forward to seeing you back in the shop at the following regularly scheduled time.

Happy Holidays from OBC!

Youth Program Coordinator

What's up everyone, I'm Bryce. I'm 28 years old and was born and raised in Lakewood, Colorado. My wife and I bought our first house here in Ogden last year and we love this city! I've been mountain biking for the past 5 years, but want to try cyclocross and some triathlons in the near future. I grew up riding my bike around the neighborhood and to the pool where I spent most of my time as a kid. Being a pool rat eventually turned into years of teaching swim lessons and coaching/coordinating various swimming and diving programs. So, I'm excited to use those experiences to help grow my new favorite sport (cycling) and the OBC Youth Programs.

Education wise, I'm pursuing a BS in Mechanical Engineering at Weber State and building a successful Real Estate Investing portfolio.
