Salt Lake Bicycle Collective

The mission of the Salt Lake City 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 Bicycle Collective provides refurbished bicycles and educational programs to the community, focusing on children and lower income households.

The Collective was started in 2002 by a few enthusiastic bicycle advocates. It has continued to expand in demand and currently provides the following community services:

• Refurbished bicycles for nominal resale and charity purposes
• Community bike shop with seven full work stations with full tool sets for bicycle repair - Valet Bicycle parking at downtown Farmer's Market and other events
• Road Effective Cycling courses for adults
• Kids I and Kids II courses for kids and their parents
• Earn-A-Bike program for kids
• Bicycle mechanic courses and certifications
• Recycling and art projects
