We have a bike for everyone - bike park bikes, mountain bikes, kids bikes, commuters, and cruisers.
All sales help us provide an awesome means of transportation for people in need- adults, kids, and families. Come use our tool benches and we’ll help you fix your own bike.
This year alone, we have helped over 200 children have safe, reliable bikes for riding to school and having fun.

We would like to thank our volunteers, customers, and supporters for helping us have a wonderful year of growth at our location.

Help us celebrate and continue to serve the community, promote physical fitness and biking as a sustainable form of transportation, and share the love of bicycles in southern Utah!

Bike Mechanic

Zach is an avid mountain biker and loves to spend his time shredding on any trail that is available to him.
Due to the destructive nature of mountain biking Zach has found interest in repairing his own mechanical issues and helping others fix theirs.

Youth Program CoordinatorAmy Bio Pic

Amy is a St George Local with a deep love and respect for her community.
In 2013 Amy’s boys joined the High School Mountain bike team, it was then that she started volunteering as a ride leader. After completing the requirements she began coaching for the team, training with the kids, teaching mountain bike skills, bike maintenance, safety, and the importance of proper nutrition.
Getting more kids on bikes is something she is very passionate about. When Amy is not working with kids on bikes she enjoys helping families and individuals find their dream home or investment property through her career as a Real Estate Agent.
Amy is also an accomplished photographer, her favorite subjects are the unique and beautiful local landscapes and of course bicycling and sporting events.

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!!
