The Ogden Bicycle Collective provides a community bike shop that is fully stocked with Park brand professional tools free for the entire community to use during "open shop" hours. We run education programs to teach Ogden how to properly care for and ride their bikes. To do this we provide bike safety and mechanic courses as well as run Earn-a-Bike programs. We have become a hub for the cycling community in general to bring together people and make Ogden a more bike friendly city.
If you would like to support the efforts of the Bicycle Collective there are a number of ways you can contribute. The collective depends on donatins from the community to support our opperation. We gladly accept donations of cash or materials. We are always looking for more bikes and bike parts. We are also continually in need of volunteers to help run the shop, help with outreach and to run programs.

To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is to have succeeded.
--Ralph Waldo Emerson
We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.
