Awesome development opportunity! --- Help us stay in downtown St. George

In the summer of 2017, the City of St. George kindly donated the lease to our current location. This enabled us to become a full-fledged community bike shop, and hire our first staff. Since then, we've grown beyond our expectations and even dreams.

We knew that this would be a temporary opportunity.

Recently, the City of St. George has published the RFP for our location, deadline is September 7: https://www.sgcity.org/economicdevelopment/innrfp 

The RFP presents itself as a perfect fit for the St. George Bicycle Collective ("increase quality of life", "promote the City as outdoor rec destination", "multi-use", etc.)

Interested parties (land developers, real estate professionals, etc…): Collaborate with a creative, professional group of locals with a huge network, committed to making downtown St. George a great place to be, the heart of this community, and a magnet for tourists and locals alike.

Every Wednesday in June and July starting June 6

Class 6 PM - 7 PM, volunteer time 7 PM - 9:00 PM

This class is FREE for members or if you stick around to volunteer for an hour. 

New volunteers welcome! 

Please show up 15 mins prior to the class for a brief orientation and some paperwork. 

If you are short on time but would like to participate and support us, inquire about our membership options!

It was incredible to see how our garage was transformed within just one day.

350+ bikes sorted through
150 Bikes scrapped and recycled
300 Wheels, tires, tubes seperated
150 Bikes stacked back in the garage 

80+ Hours of labor combined

Thanks so much to all the helpers and everyone bringing us tools, canopies, cold drings, welding equipment, a trailer, and so much more!!!

A special thanks goes to the Larkins and L&L mechanical. They donated a trailer for us to use. And then came to fix it after it gave way under our load of bikes!!

Bio coming soon!

Mechanic

The first time Byron was introduced to biking as recreation was by a friend in 2004. About 10 years ago, he picked up a bike again, this time for transportation. Learning to maintain his bike was a nessary skill to be a full time bicycle commuter. 

Byron likes going fast, exercising, knowing tha he can fix almost anything on any bike, pedaling up hills, eating cookies, and customizing his bike. Byron doesn't like flat tires, riding in the summer heat, finding safe places to lock his bike, people honking at, pant legs getting dirty from chain oil, and wearing helmets (we won't tell anyone).

Are you curious about bike touring but don't know how to get started? Or an experienced bike packer with many adventures and pro-tips to share?

 

Tuesday, May 22

7 PM - 9 PM 

St. George Bicycle Collective 

 

Join us for a fun evening of dreaming up new adventures!

Bike packers Chris Haag and Harrison Shotzbarger (and maybe a couple more) will share tales from their adventures around town, around the globe, and their prep work for a multi-year trip.

There will be lots of time for questions and exchange of ideas.

Everyone welcome! No one is too young or too old to explore the world by bicycle (tricycle, recumbent...)!

 

RSVP on facebook

The event is FREE to the public
