The Ogden Bicycle Collective is now accepting applications for our Jr Bicycle Mechanics Class!  The 10-week course is designed to teach 14-17 year old aspiring mechanics the basic skills needed to become an ace wrencher and prepare you to get a job in a shop.

And it's FREE!

Classes will be held Wednesday and Friday after school from 4-6 PM.  This course is intensive and youth who complete the assignments and pass the tests will receive a certification at the end of the 10 weeks.

For youth who are interested and committed to completing the course, fill out the application attached to the bottom of the page and return it our Youth Program Cooridantor, Lulu, by September 2nd.  Space is limited, so interviews of applicants will be conducted the week of September 4th and classes will begin the following week.

For questions, please contact our Youth Program Coordinator at .

The Ogden Bicycle Collective and Ogden City Arts is pleased to announce the inaugural, Bike Homecoming! We will start the event with a free, easy, no-drop community bike ride beginning at Union Station, where everyone of all abilities is welcome. Festivities begin at 6PM. The route will ride east on 25th street, past many of the First Friday Art Stroll galleries. It then weaves through the Junction, past the Temple and Adventure Park, under the Ogden Arch, and eventually back to the Ogden Amphitheater—where the party begins. DJ KyWizard from Lavender Vinyl will provide the music, you provide the dance moves.

Everyone is encouraged to dress in their best formal attire befitting of Homecoming.

The community bike ride is free, but tickets will be sold for the dance. Ticket sales and other donations from Bike Homecoming go to supporting the Ogden Bicycle Collective's community programs. Come out for a good time to support bikes, cyclists, and the community!

Kaden Coil-Pittman

Youth Education Coordinator

Kaden Coil-Pittman joined the Salt Lake Bicycle Collective team in the summer of 2017. Before SLBC, Kaden taught kindergarten and designed/directed a STEM program tailored to the needs of K-3 students. It was here that Kaden gained his passion for education and empowering youth. Kaden is also extremely dedicated to the nonprofit community and works through these organizations to remove barriers from marginalized individuals. SLBC provides a space where both of Kaden's passions can merge. Although Kaden is new to bicycle mechanics, he remains invested in teaching new skills to youth so that they can further their passion for cycling and become self-starting bicycle ambassadors. 

Owen Geary

Mechanic & Open Shop Manager

Hailing from both Northern California and Western New York the raw beauty of Utah is what drew him here. Owen started as a volunteer at the collective in 2012 and has worked as Valet Coordinator, Mechanic, Open Shop Manager, or has been a Keylist volunteer throughout the years. In his spare time he enjoys playing with Beehive Bike Polo, working on his 80's BMW, and mountain biking. 

Amy Nguyen Wiscombe

Volunteer and Program Coordinator

Amy Nguyen Wiscombe was born and raised in Logan, Utah, where fun could only be found in the great outdoors. Prior to joining the Salt Lake City Bicycle Collective team in June 2017, Amy coordinated a statewide AmeriCorps Program for Utah Campus Compact (UCC). Her time at UCC truly solidified her commitment to community service and engagement. Amy is especially motivated and invested in working with underserved and underrepresented populations in her community to provide access to bikes and bike education. In her spare time, she enjoys rock climbing, riding her road bike, and seeking the best Vietnamese cuisine - outside of her mother’s house, of course.    

Provo Bicycle Collective is proud to announce a newly-formed partnership with Refugee Action Network through which we hope to provide dozens of free bikes each year to refugees seeking to become self-sufficient in Utah Valley.

In its last year of work, Refugee Action Network has proven itself as an effective resource for refugees who have already spent some time in the US and seeking to become more self-sufficient. 

Our partnership allows Refugee Action Network to recommend their clients to our shop for a free Goodwill Bike – donated bicycles refurbished by PBC volunteers.  In 2016, Bicycle Collective gave away 1,436 Goodwill Bikes throughout Utah.

Our hope is that their refugees will use these bikes to meet daily transportation needs; riding to work, shopping for groceries, and meeting appointments. 

We’re always in need of willing volunteers to repair bikes for these refugees.  Interested volunteers can find out how to fix bikes with us at Bicyclecollective.org.  No experience is necessary.

Connor Biser

Mechanic

I go to school at Timpview high, and race on the NICA cross-country mountain biking team for my school. I’ve been working on bikes for the past couple years, and built my first racing bike myself at the collective when I was a volunteer. I love the PBC and riding bikes (and XTR stuff).

Ikaika Cox

Shop Director

A Utah County native, I began volunteering at the Provo Bicycle Collective in 2012. After completing a Bachelor’s degree in Literature and Philosophy in 2015, I moved to Boise and began working with the Boise Bicycle Project where I honed my skills as a mechanic and educator. In 2016 I returned to Provo, committed to growing the operation here. I love bicycles because I see them as a vehicle that challenges riders to push themselves and engage their community in a different way. I see the Collective growing and becoming more effective in fostering community impact and growth, and serving as a space in which community members can grow and develop themselves.

Danielle Stiff, Ogden Director

Danielle is a long time bicycle commuter, but until stepping into the Ogden Bicycle Collective (OBC), knew very little about bike mechanics.  She began attending the free Bike Mechanic 101 classes, then applied for and was accepted into the first round of OBC's Apprenticeship Program.  After completing the program, Danielle was hired as OBC's Volunteer Coordinator, where she took an active role in helping to develop many of OBC's existing programs.  When the position became available, Danielle was promoted to Director of the Ogden Bicycle Collective.  Danielle has been involved in non-profit work for over a decade, and has seen first-hand how bikes can improve people's lives.  She is proud to be part of a sustainable community organization that works to empower people and promote a healthy lifestyle.
