The SLC Bicycle Collective has changed its Sales and DIY hours to the following:

Saturday - 12 - 6 PM

Sales and DIY hours are times when anyone can come in to purchase a bike, work on their own bike project, or drop off donations.

All other programming hours remain the same.

Bike Valet Coordinator

Bio coming soon.

Open Shop Manager

Born and raised in Utah, Cole has always loved the outdoors. He was introduced to mountain biking in 2016, and since then he has raced with a local team and worked at a bike shop. After discovering the Bicycle Collective in 2017, he started volunteering in Youth Open Shop and has since become an employee. When he’s not at the Collective, Cole likes mountain biking, camping, running, reading, and playing the cello.

AmeriCorps Member

Rachel bought her first road bike in 2011 when she was preparing to do her first sprint triathlon. She quickly fell in love with cycling and has been active in the cycling/triathlon community ever since. She also enjoys reading, hiking, running, camping, and mountain biking. Rachel first volunteered at the collective in the fall of 2017 through a service learning project for school. Rachel is currently a student and is working towards obtaining her bachelor’s degree in business management. She is an Americorps member and is thrilled to be partnered with the collective for her year of service.

Mechanic & Open Shop Manager

A serendipitous hiring through Americorps VISTA in 2010 moved Casey from the suburbs of western New York to the quiet of Colorado’s San Juan mountains, where he coordinated outreach for the Lake Fork Valley Conservancy, founded a community garden non-profit, and discovered the many ways one can play in the vast expanse of the American west. Casey moved to SLC in August 2015, and began volunteering at the Bicycle Collective within a few weeks. Interested in literature, geography, planning, and their interactions with social and environmental issues, Casey is excited to tumble deeper down the rabbit hole of bicycle knowledge.

A safe and supportive learning environment for those who identify!

Bicycle maintenance has traditionally been an overwhelmingly (cis)male-dominated area. It is our goal to help teach individuals who have been marginalized or intimidated in this setting to be knowledgeable and confident working on their bikes. The Salt Lake City Bicycle Collective holds Women Trans Femme (WTF) Night in the shop every Wednesday from 5:30 - 8:00 PM. This program offers a safe and supportive learning environment for those who identify to fix their own bikes, buy bikes, and/or volunteer in the shop. 

Use of the shop for DIY projects is $5 per hour, or free to members.

This space is for:

Anyone who identifies as female, transgender, femme, genderqueer, trans-masculine, trans-feminine, or feels that their socialization or treatment as a woman, transperson*, femme has impeded their participation in bicycle mechanics.

Women: A person who identifies as a woman.

Trans: Transgender, genderqueer, gender non-conforming, gender creative, anyone whose gender identity is fluid, transgressive, and/or transitioning.

Femme: A gender identity in which a person of any gender embodies a feminine appearance, expression, or identity.

If you are not WTF identified, BECOME AN ALLY:

  • Respect the space: Come during our regular open shop hours.
  • Respect People: During our regular open shop hours, treat all female & trans* folks as you would any other person (don’t assume they’re less knowledgeable, don’t call them “sweety,” and NEVER take a wrench out of their hand!)
  • Get Educated: Learn about the issues facing women and trans* communities.
  • Educate others: About why and how to be an ally!

This program was implemented with assistance from BICAS.org and other WTF program models across the nation.

Mechanic & Open Shop Manager

I have been volunteering or working in non-profit community shops since 2008.  I used to ride my bike or walk to high school to avoid the massive traffic issues which has lead to a life long passion of riding.  I really found the joy of working on bikes and teaching through my interactions with non-profit community shops I found in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Santa Cruz and Portland.  I truly enjoy creating learning moments and seeing the joys of patrons learning and applying themselves to get their own bikes working.  I really enjoy teaching and have enjoyed creating positive impacts on peoples lives. 

Youth Education Coordinator

Kaden Coil-Pittman joined the Salt Lake Bicycle Collective team in the summer of 2017. Before SLBC, Kaden taught kindergarten and designed/directed a STEM program tailored to the needs of K-3 students. It was here that Kaden gained his passion for education and empowering youth. Kaden is also extremely dedicated to the nonprofit community and works through these organizations to remove barriers from marginalized individuals. SLBC provides a space where both of Kaden's passions can merge. Although Kaden is new to bicycle mechanics, he remains invested in teaching new skills to youth so that they can further their passion for cycling and become self-starting bicycle ambassadors. 

Mechanic & Open Shop Manager

Hailing from both Northern California and Western New York the raw beauty of Utah is what drew him here. Owen started as a volunteer at the collective in 2012 and has worked as Valet Coordinator, Mechanic, Open Shop Manager, or has been a Keylist volunteer throughout the years. In his spare time he enjoys playing with Beehive Bike Polo, working on his 80's BMW, and mountain biking.
