Youth Open Shop

Youth Open Shop is an afterschool program designed to teach bicycle mechanics to youth ages 8-18. Youth Open Shop hours are set aside only for youth so they have a place to learn among their peers. Youth can expect the same do-it-yourself experience as our normal Open Shop users have; staff will provide guidance but not do repairs for them.

Current Youth Open Shop Hours: Mondays 3pm-5pm

Please direct all questions regarding Youth Open Shop to .

During Youth Open Shop, youth are allowed to:

  1. Work on their own bike
  2. Work on bikes for giveaway
  3. Earn a bike for themselves by first working on bikes for giveaway

Please note:

  • While the shop time fee is waived, youth are still responsible to pay for all new parts they use or earn used parts by volunteering
  • PBC will not store your child's projects
  • Workstands are first-come-first-served and PBC shop staff have the right to turn youth away if the shop is too full
  • PBC staff will not tolerate misbehavior and reserve the right to ban youth from Youth Open Shop
  • Youth are responsible for repairing their own bicycles; PBC staff will not repair bikes for them
  • Parents are welcome to wait in the shop but are not allowed to work on bikes with thier children.

Buy a Bike

We carry diverse, ever-changing selection of fully-refurbished used bikes. Our favorite bikes are "commutified"--reliable bikes from the 80s and 90s that we convert to comfy everyday bikes--but our shelves are often stocked with everything from feather-light road bikes to full-suspension mountain bikes. Because everything we carry is donated to us, we never really know what’s going to be on the shelf from week to week.

Come to our shop or call us today to find out what's in store!

Every kid deserves a bike. That’s why, in celebration of Provo School District’s Bike to School Week (September 10-15, 2018), Provo Bicycle Collective has committed to giving away 75 free bicycles to children whose families cannot afford to purchase a bike for them.

The bicycles will be distributed through the Parent Teacher Associations of Rock Canyon, Timpanogos, Sunset View, Provost, Franklin, Provo Peaks, Spring Creek, and Edgemont elementary schools.

Some children have already received their bicycles (see attached photos), but most will receive them during Bike to School Week.

Why is this necessary?

The National Center for Safe Routes to School found that only 2.2% of children biked to school in 2013. According to the Utah Department of Health, childhood obesity in Utah is rising as more children are driven or bussed to school. We hope these children use their new bikes to get to school each day and that they adopt an active, healthy lifestyle.
