Welcome to our newest line of products!

We are now offering "Ride-able" bikes for those who are looking for a bargain.

Unlike other bikes in our store, these bikes are not refurbished (prices vary between $40 - $150). Every "Ride-able" bike comes with one hour of free bench coaching. We will help you diagnose any existing issues and show you how to fix them. "Ride-able" bikes are sold "as-is" and are not refundable.

Every purchase at the Bicycle Collective helps us to provide bicycles, repair help, and educational programs to adults and children in need.

We are very happy to share our 2018 numbers with you. Here's what we accomplished together. Thank you!

Our Goodwill Bikes program provides free bicycles to anyone who can’t afford to purchase one. Goodwill Bikes may be earned through 6 hours of volunteer service.  Find out how to volunteer here.

We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to Lexus Pursuit of Potential for the matching grant of $5000 that will fund our Youth Open Shop for the next 6 months!!
Thank you so much to allow these kids to learn about bikes, develop leadership skills, and create life-long friendships and memories!

In order to reach more individuals in need who might not be able to travel to the Bicycle Collective, we are starting to offer a monthly ‘Bike Kitchen’ at Switchpoint on Wednesday, Jan 16, 2019, 2 - 4:30 PM. 

The Bike Kitchen is taking us back to our roots - this is how the St. George Bicycle Collective started in 2015, when Dannielle Larkin first gathered a group of volunteers and solicited bicycle donations to help the homeless in St. George.

The Bike Kitchen will take place monthly. Switchpoint residents are notified in advance, our volunteers help with immediate repair needs and give out invitations to the Bicycle Collective to those who need more in-depth help or who would like to earn a bike through our Earn-A-Bike program.

If you are currently in need of repair help or of a bike for transportation, or if you would like to help at the Bike Kitchen as a volunteer mechanic, please contact . Find out more about how to volunteer with us and about our Goodwill Earn-A-Bike Program HERE

Originally from Southern California, Joel learned the ropes of bike mechanics in Moab bike shops.

He raced both downhill and road bikes, and loves to lend his expertise in bike mechanics and his ability to diagnose almost any issue in that realm to anyone who'd like to learn. Joel also built trails for the National Parks Service and Conservation Core, and worked in Search and Rescue and as a Wildland Firefighter. He's got some stories to tell.

Ask him about his experiences being involved in the Columbia Shuttle recovery efforts and what he knows about the real story behind the movie "127 hours".
