The Salt Lake City location offers FREE community cycling classes each week taught by our skilled mechanics and volunteers. Come learn more about bicycle maintenance and repair in a non-intimidating and supportive space. No sign-up or registration necessary!

No need to bring your bike to the class. We will use our bikes and parts in-house as examples. 

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.

'm 54 years old and I've loved bikes my whole life. I've worked with bicycles off and on since I was 15, from little mom & pop shops to some of the biggest players in the industry. I like to think of myself as a bicycle industry "hanger-on" and I try not to take myself too seriously. It's only a bike, after all!  

The reason I love the Bicycle Collective here in Utah, as well as all the other non-profit bike outfits on the planet, is that they remind me of the reasons I learned to love bikes in the first place. Riding my bike to work at my first job. Riding with friends. Learning how to fix bikes. Exploring new places. In my life, bikes have always meant personal freedom and I'm here to share that message. Bikes are for everyone, regardless a person's level of fitness, income or station in life. You may be riding your bike to your local library or you might be racing in the Tour de France, but goal is exactly the same. Keep the rubber side down!

Hi, my name’s Dustin. I’m excited to part of this organization. I love mountain biking and spending time with Chelsea, my wife  and Edith, my daughter . 

I began my career in the cycling industry as a junior road racer working and wrenching in shops to support my racing ambitions. At one point I had a 50 mile round-trip commute from Bountiful to Millcreek Bicycles. In 2010, I earned my USA Cycling Category 1 rank and had a top-20 result at U-23 nationals in the time trial. The following year I began working at Quality Bicycle Products (QBP) as a customer service representative. 

I became aware of the Bicycle Collective in 2012 after a snowboarding accident put an end to my road racing ambitions. In 2013, I was hired as the Ogden Bicycle Collective’s open shop manager and eventually helped move the building from Wall Ave. to the Fowler Ave. location. 

At QBP I took on an additional role as the site ACE Coordinator. This gave me experience organizing volunteer projects and working on advocacy efforts.

I’ve spent the last 3 years immersed in the world of disc-brakes at TRP/Tektro USA working as a warranty tech / customer service rep / graphic designer / human swiss army knife.

I love helping people learn to fix their bikes and enjoy the sport that has brought such happiness to my life.

Justin Leiter - Mechanic

As a Utah native, Justin has been spoiled with great access to outdoor activities including mountain biking. Fearing that a bike complication will leave him stranded many miles away in Bigfoot’s backyard, Justin decided to take a course at the Collective to give him the skills needed to prevent this. Two years later he is back and happy to share his knowledge at the shop. In his free time, he likes to go on super fun camping trips and go snowboarding.
