Andrew Butterfield

Written by

Andrew Butterfield picked up his passion for bicycles in his hometown of Boise, Idaho, diving headfirst into wrenching, commuting, touring, trail riding, and really any reason to be on or around bicycles. He moved to Utah in 2010 to complete his bachelor's degree at Westminster College, where he immediately got involved with the on-campus affiliate shop of the Bicycle Collective. Over the years, he has maintained regular involvement in once facet or another of the Bicycle Collective, but now spends his days doing academic research at Huntsman Cancer Institute. Along with his love for self-sustained, human-powered travel, Andrew continues to be impressed with the Collective's ability to grow as an organization while maintaining its unique community focus.

Hey everyone! We believe that 30 minutes on the bike each day is enough to unwind, feel free, and is crucial to our happiness. So why not build a nice routine? We've been wanting to get a shop ride started for some time here, and thought it'd be nice to keep it simple and start small. 

We will ride from the Collective to Sandtown Park - just down the street - for BYO lunch picnic. We hope to provide a space for folks to get outside and socialize for 45 mins during their workday. Everyone's gotta eat lunch, why not do it together under the red rock? It's our intention to keep this under an hour so commuters and 9-5ers can get away from the desk on their lunch break, stretch their legs, and chat with other Collective supporters. We will roll out from the Collective at 12:15p and leave the park to be back to our respective work places by 1p. 

Please bring your own lunch, water, flat tire repair, etc. We hope to see you out there!

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.

Annual Reports

Learn what we've accomplished by reading our annual reports below:

Awesome development opportunity! --- Help us stay in downtown St. George

In the summer of 2017, the City of St. George kindly donated the lease to our current location. This enabled us to become a full-fledged community bike shop, and hire our first staff. Since then, we've grown beyond our expectations and even dreams.

We knew that this would be a temporary opportunity.

Recently, the City of St. George has published the RFP for our location, deadline is September 7: https://www.sgcity.org/economicdevelopment/innrfp 

The RFP presents itself as a perfect fit for the St. George Bicycle Collective ("increase quality of life", "promote the City as outdoor rec destination", "multi-use", etc.)

Interested parties (land developers, real estate professionals, etc…): Collaborate with a creative, professional group of locals with a huge network, committed to making downtown St. George a great place to be, the heart of this community, and a magnet for tourists and locals alike.

Community Bike Shop

 

Want to fix your own bicycle?  During Open Shop hours, we have up to six workbenches of professional-grade bike tools available for public use.  With the guidance of a staff mechanic, even those who have never picked up a wrench before can learn how to repair a flat tire, replace a cable, or even give their bike a full tune-up. 

The St. George Bicycle Collective is hiring a Youth Progam Instructor

This position is much more than just an opportunity to wrench on bikes and share your abilities as a youth instructor. All of our mechanics work together with our volunteers and have the opportunity to move into leadership positions in education and youth programming, operations, and mechanics.

We are a growing community organization with a strong passion for promoting bicycling for transportation as a cornerstone for sustainable growth in this region.  

For the right candidate, this position can develop into year-round, full-time, multi-faceted employment with increasing pay and responsibility.

Depending on availability, our Youth Program Instructor can double as a staff mechanic or focus exclusively on our Youth Programs. 

 

The Highlights:

  • Hourly pay depending on experience
  • Opportunity to grow the job and the organization
  • Get paid to do makes a significant difference in our community
