The Bicycle Collective will be hosting a Grand Opening to celebrate the launch of the Provo Bicycle Collective Location. Please come visit this exciting new space to learn about their programs, enjoy light refreshments, and win in the prize drawing.
“I’m very excited to see Provo climb the ranks of Bicycle Friendly Communities. Opening a Bicycle Collective was our the next logical step and a perfect way to channel all the momemtum and energy of local bicycle advocates and volunteers,” said Zac Whitmore, Director of the Provo Bicycle Collective. “Much like the other Bicycle Collective locations in Salt Lake and Ogden, Provo will offer a Community Bike Shop for guided Do-It-Yourself repair; supply Bikes for Goodwill Organizations through a referral network; and eventually offer the Earn-a-Bike mechanics classes and Trips for Kids mountain bike rides for youth.”
The mission of the Bicycle Collective is to promote cycling as an effective and sustainable form of transportation and as a cornerstone of a cleaner, healthier, and safer society. The Collective provides refurbished bicycles and educational programs to the community, focusing on children and lower income households.
