Dan Richard - Mechanic

Written by

My name is Dan

As you can see I was a very fat man. With forks in both hands. Gluttony and greed, that was my creed. Till one day a found a new fork in hand. One with a wheel attached, that has latched me with a higher purpose. To live healthier, to respect and engage with life and nature. To nurture a spirit of giving, not just receiving. There’s more to this life than just me. I see that now, I feel it here at The Bike Collective. When I see every man, woman and child leave with a smile. This is what biking has done and taught me. Mile after mile.

Fantastic news! Please welcome our new Volunteer and Program Coordinator, Anne Maffitt, captured here in action taking pics of a volunteer group. Anne has some really cool stories to share, including tales from a 1.5 year long road trip and stories about learning to drive before learning how to ride a bike. Come meet her at the shop and follow us for information on new volunteer programs and our youth programs, which she'll get back up and running soon!

Michael is a cyclist, snowboarder, traveler, and independent Artist. Producing at the fulcrum of minimalism and function to create strong, lasting and remarkable memories. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

Anne Maffitt was born and raised in rural Nebraska with only occasional access to quality paved roads. This, combined with the fact that rural youth could learn to drive at an earlier age, meant that Anne learned how to drive at age 13 before learning how to ride a bike at age 14. Once she learned, she never looked back. 

 

During her time at Hastings College, Anne focused her studies on Environmental Ethics and Youth Education, creating the college’s first environmental organization. In 2011, Anne founded a property management and investment company with the goal of providing affordable housing to individuals hit hard by the Great Recession. Most of her career was spent in the Chicago metro working for various non-profits as a Director of Youth, Mission and Outreach. With a passion for travel, Anne spent a year and a half on a cross-country trip before moving to Southern Utah. Once she found St. George, she knew she was home.

I got into bikes on my LDS mission (which is actually where I learned how to ride a bike), after I got hit by a car which had totaled my bike. Another missionary gave me a bike which I had the opportunity to repair. Fixing up that bike (a schwinn varsity) is where my love bicycles started. Upon my return home from my mission, I started volunteering at the Collective (June 2018). I am currently studying computer engineering at BYU.
