GIVING TUESDAY 01Tuesday, May 5, 2020, is #GivingTuesday, a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. 

We at the Bicycle Collective in Utah are excited to get folks riding bikes as part of this day of giving. Cycling enables us to exercise while maintaining social distance, explore new areas, and enjoy the outdoors. It is good for our physical and mental health: boosting immune systems, heightening moods, and exposing us to sunshine. 

If there was ever a time for bikes, that time is now. The bike is a happiness machine bringing joy with each pedal. We can experience the joy of riding together even as we shelter at home apart.

How we're giving back this Tuesday

May is National Bike Month, and on Giving Tuesday Now, we are kicking off the month by giving back to children in our State. Our staff and volunteers are building bicycles for Utah kids whose families may not be able to purchase one due to financial and economic hardship in the wake of COVID-19. We invite you to sign up for a free bike from one of our locations or share this email with someone you know who needs a bike for their child or children. Once the bike is built, we will call the parent or guardian to set up a convenient time for pick up at our shop at the location you selected. (Note as of 7 May 2020.  We are going to temporarily disconnect the link for the sign up as we 430 requests we need to fill.)

Sign up here for a free kids bike from one of our locations.

Throughout our four locations in Utah--Ogden, Provo, Salt Lake City and St. George, our staff and volunteers are repairing and refurbishing bikes for kids.
