Kyle Owens

Youth Mechanic Certification Instructor

Kyle has been working with Provo Bicycle Collective since October 2015.  He was one of the first graduates from PBC's Mechanics 101 course.  Kyle has a deep love for mountain biking and the places he is able to explore with his bike.  When the trailes are muddy you might find him cruising around on his road bike.  Kyle is currently a junior in the mechanical engineering program at BYU.  He hopes to help everyone learn about the joys of biking and the service that the PBC can be in helping them more fully appreciate their bike.

Jordan Bartholomew

Shop Facilitator

Jordan became affiliated with Bicycle Collective volunteering with the Salt Lake Bicycle Collective for the past two years.  He got aquainted with Provo Bicycle Collective by stopping in for random parts or help and has become a friend of the shop.  Jordan's love of bikes started with racing road bikes with the University of Utah.  Now he goes on extended bicycle tours, camping on his bikes for weeks to months at a time.  He is currently a senior at the University of Utah studying political science and environmental sustainability.

Provo Bicycle Collective is proud to announce its gift of 27 bikes to Timpanogos Elementary, 2 bikes to Dixon Middle and 2 bikes to Provo High during Provo’s Bike to School week.  Our hope is that these bikes will be given to children who could not otherwise afford one so they too can ride their bikes to school.

These bikes came to Provo Bicycle Collective donated, were refurbished by volunteers, and safety checked by our trained mechanics.  We are always looking for worthy organizations to give bikes to and interested volunteers to fix bikes with us.  Contact with any questions.

Tanner Garrett

Mechanic

Tanner met the Provo Bicycle Collective in the Fall of 2015, he was about to scrap an old Nishiki he'd gotten for free but decided to give it a chance--PBC gave him the tools and skills to get the bike up and running. He rode it for two years after that and got hooked on cycling. He now helps out at The Collective because he wants everyone to have the same joy of riding a bike! In addition to riding and working on bikes he loves skiing, woodworking, learning, and just about anything you can do outside. He's a full time student at BYU working towards acceptance into the Marriott School of Business.

Bikes for Tykes

Do you remember your first bike? I remember mine, it was blue with white tires and a flower covered banana seat. It was not only my freedom to get around, but also my freedom to explore. With this bike I started a love affair that has lasted to this day. Imagine never having that first bike. For many kids, this is a reality. Help us put a first bike into the hands of 100+ elementary aged children by donating to our Bikes for Tykes fundraiser.

Bingham CycleryMTB Enthusiasts of Utah and WomenMTB have come together to raise money for us here at the Collective. Last year was an amazing success with over $7000 raised in monetary and in kind donations we were able to give more than 90 bikes to kids in need.  This year we hope to do even more and will be hosting 2 events!

MAKE A CHILD HAPPY THIS SEASON

If you want to help, any amount from $5 to $500, makes a difference. Donate today! You can also help by volunteering for the giveaway events on Nov. 11th in Ogden and Dec. 2nd in Salt Lake, to do so, fill out this form and someone will be in touch.

Funds above and beyond what is needed for the Bikes for Tykes giveaway will be used to support a new Bicycle Collective youth program called “Bike School.” From start to finish, this program aims to place young people from diverse backgrounds in real bike shop jobs along the Wasatch Front, teach life long job skills and continue to provide a way for youth to earn a bike through volunteerism.

Support Bikes for Tykes

The Ogden Bicycle Collective and Ogden City Arts is pleased to announce the inaugural, Bike Homecoming! We will start the event with a free, easy, no-drop community bike ride beginning at Union Station, where everyone of all abilities is welcome. Festivities begin at 6PM. The route will ride east on 25th street, past many of the First Friday Art Stroll galleries. It then weaves through the Junction, past the Temple and Adventure Park, under the Ogden Arch, and eventually back to the Ogden Amphitheater—where the party begins. DJ KyWizard from Lavender Vinyl will provide the music, you provide the dance moves.

Everyone is encouraged to dress in their best formal attire befitting of Homecoming.

The community bike ride is free, but tickets will be sold for the dance. Ticket sales and other donations from Bike Homecoming go to supporting the Ogden Bicycle Collective's community programs. Come out for a good time to support bikes, cyclists, and the community!
