You may still see Lilly around the shop, but she has resigned her position as Volunteer Coordinator to pursue grad school, so we're looking to fill her position.

These are some big shoes to fill, but if you've got a passion for bikes, our mission, and connecting with people, this is the job for you!

The Ogden Bicycle Collective relies heavily on volunteers to ensure the functionality of its community programs and the shop.  Volunteers are involved in helping maintain the shop (cleanliness, safety, etc.), helping to fix bikes for our Goodwill Bike Program and Kid’s Bike Giveaways, staffing events, and more.  It is the Volunteer Coordinator’s job to actively engage the community and potential volunteers. The Volunteer Coordinator is passionate about OBC’s mission and programs, and innovative and flexible, using a multitude of methods and tools to recruit and retain volunteers.  The Volunteer Coordinator should also have excellent communication and teaching skills, as well as be able to demonstrate competence as a bicycle mechanic in order to train volunteers in the shop.

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.

The Ogden Bicycle Collective and Ogden City Arts is pleased to announce the return of Bike Homecoming!

When: Friday September 7th

Where: Ogden City Amphitheater

Time: 6:00 PM

We will start the event with a free, easy, no-drop community bike ride beginning at West Municipal Park (on the corner of 25th and Grant, where everyone of all abilities is welcome. Festivities begin at 6PM. The route will ride North on Keisel. It then weaves through the Junction, past the Temple and High 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!

FAQs

Are there minimum age requirements for the community bike ride?

The community bike ride will be an easy, no-drop, family friendly ride, however we encourage anyone who may not be able to complete a 3 mile bike ride independently to use a trailer, trail-bike attachment, or other attachment to help stay in pace with the rest of the riders.

We will have safety riders, designated by signs, in front and in back of the group. The Ogden Police Department will close roads and provide an escort for the ride, but roads will re-open to traffic behind the final safety rider. If you are behind that rider, we will not be able to guarantee your safety and you will be considered traffic as usual.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

All ages are invited to attend Bike Homecoming. Only those of the Legal Drinking Age may participate in the consumption of alcoholic beverage. Beer will be sold, as well as non alcoholic alternatives.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Ride the Front Runner north from your town (very bike-friendly) and ride .5 miles to the starting point! There is also parking up and down local business along 25th street, as well as behind the Ogden Amphitheater. During the dance, Bike Valet will be provided by Ogden Bicycle Collective at no charge!

Shop Dog

Hi all, I'm Cosby. I work here at the OBC, its my job to say hi to you as you come in the shop. I also nap a lot while my human JP fixes all the bikes. I love working here but I'd rather be on a hike or bike ride. 

Head Mechanic

JP is pretty awesome. He has lots of experience riding and working with bikes. He is a really nice guy and loves helping you fix your bike. The best thing about JP is everywhere he goes he brings his dog Cosby, who is unquestionably the best boy!
