YOSlive

Hey Everyone!

Youth Open Shop: Live is a weekly livestream where we do our best to answer your questions and help you learn more about bikes! Currently we stream every week on

Tuesday @ 5:00 p.m. (Utah time)

 Every week we go over a simple topic about bike repair, bike tools, bike riding, or bike facts. We do these live so that if you would like to ask a bike related question we can go over them right then and there! Any bike related questions are welcome! Whether we are covering that topic in the stream or not, we would love to answer your bike related questions!

Safety Rules

Now, if you would like to participate, we ask that everyone you follow a few simple safety rules:

Internet Safety

1. Be Excellent to Each Other

Always treat other people online with respect! Don't engage people who want to make you angry or are trying to start arguments.

2. Guard Your Privacy

You can always post anonymously if you would like. If you do post with your name be sure to only include your first name, last initial, and general area where your from. (Example: Melody T. West Haven, Utah)

3. Bike Photos

We would love to show pictures of your bike problems and help you learn how to fix them! You can email your bike photos to  but there are a two important rules: Have it be against a plain background like a wall, your yard, or the pavement; and don't show any personal information, such as someone's face, your house number, the license plate of a car, or anything else like that.

4. Ask Permission

If you are younger than 18 years old, always ask your parent or guardian if it is alright that you submit anything over the internet.

Safety Rules

1. Use the Right Tool

Make sure to find out what tool is best for the job and how to use it correctly. A wrench is not a hammer, and a knife can be dangerous if you try to use it as a screwdriver!

2. Ask for Help

If you need help lifting or holding something, using a tool you aren't comfortable with, or don't know what to do next, always ask for help!

3. Keep Safety in Mind

Always keep your safety and the safety of those around you as the highest priority when working on and riding bikes! Stay safe!

I’m Otis. I’m a good boy and am the cutest puppy on the planet, according to my human. I love all people, especially the ones that throw my ball or play tug. I also love all dogs, but cats freak me out; I’ve had a few try to scratch me when all I wanted to do was sniff them. My favorite activities are hiking, swimming, playing fetch, carrying the ball in my mouth, playing tug, sniffing things, and snuggling.

Kira Johnson originally moved to Provo as a student at BYU. During her student years, she didn’t have a car and out of necessity was commuting by bike. She found a lot of mental relief from her bike rides and came to associate her commutes as a form of therapy. As she consistently commuted, she became aware of the lack of bicycle infrastructure and sought for ways to add her voice to those advocating for safe streets. As a result, she got involved with BikeWalk Provo and Provo Bicycle Collective. After volunteering with PBC for a few months, she was offered a position to coordinate programs. She ran the Women/Trans/Femme (WTF) Night and Youth Programs from December 2017 to May 2019. 

After graduating from BYU with a degree in Geography, she moved across the country to Waynesboro, Virginia, a charming little city at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the Shenandoah Valley. There she worked as a city planner for about 2 years. 

Kira is excited to be back at Provo Bicycle Collective, a place that feels like home. She loves the Provo community and is stoked to reconnect with all the great folks in the area. Apart from loving commuting by bike, Kira enjoys cross-country skiing, roller skating, backpacking, bike touring, wearing sweaters, eating ethnic foods, gardening, and doing all things with her pup, Otis.

I started pedaling passionately after life changing hip surgeries. Mountain biking restored my ability to get back in the mountains and I discovered a new found love and respect for the bicycle machine. I started volunteering at the Ogden BC in 2017 because I wanted to share my love for biking, to be a service to others, and be my own mechanic. Professionally, I’m a successful restauranteur and executive chef. When I’m not in my kitchens, I enjoy helping others, flying, climbing, mountaineering, traveling, bluegrass festivals and, of course, riding my bikes.

Due to the pandemic, things are a little bit different this year...
