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.

Media professionals who are interested in filming or photographing children receiving their bicycles during Bike to School Week should contact Provo Bicycle Collective’s director, Austin Taylor, at .

FAQs

Are there minimum age requirements for the community bike ride?

The community bike ride will be an easy, no-drop, family friendly ride, however we encourage anyone who may not be able to complete a 3 mile bike ride independently to use a trailer, trail-bike attachment, or other attachment to help stay in pace with the rest of the riders.

We will have safety riders, designated by signs, in front and in back of the group. The Ogden Police Department will close roads and provide an escort for the ride, but roads will re-open to traffic behind the final safety rider. If you are behind that rider, we will not be able to guarantee your safety and you will be considered traffic as usual.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

All ages are invited to attend Bike Homecoming. Only those of the Legal Drinking Age may participate in the consumption of alcoholic beverage. Beer will be sold, as well as non alcoholic alternatives.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Ride the Front Runner north from your town (very bike-friendly) and ride .5 miles to the starting point! There is also parking up and down local business along 25th street, as well as behind the Ogden Amphitheater. During the dance, Bike Valet will be provided by Ogden Bicycle Collective at no charge!

Sam Osorio

Shop Facilitator

My name is Samuel Osorio. I was born in Bogota, Colombia. When I was four I moved to Miami, Florida with my family and lived there for 18 years. Miami is crazy busy and driving sometimes the most stressful thing to do. I’ve been riding bikes my whole life; it saved me time and hassle trying to find parking. Before working at the PBC, I worked at a gym teaching kids how to rock climb. My goal is to help as many people own a bike and enjoy it.
