When: Friday September 7th

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.

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!

  • Tickets required for all attendees ages 10 and over
  • Everyone entering the venue must have a ticket or pay at the gate

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!

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.
