Bicycle Collective News for May 2015

By Davey Davis

We’re doing our thing at the Bicycle Collectives across the state, giving away an unprecedented number of bicycles thanks to our up and running shops in Provo and Ogden and our new apprenticeship program in Salt Lake! We’ve already given away 200 more tuned up kids bikes than at this time last spring!

We want to see you at Bike Prom on May 30th in Salt Lake City! It’s going to be a huge party, we strongly recommend getting online beforehand to register at bikeprom.com, prices will be going up at the door and we might sell out ahead of time this year.

What we need most in Salt Lake is storage! If you or anyone you know has a warehouse anywhere in the valley that you want to donate access to our rent at a charitable rate, we want to talk with you! We’re looking to store around three thousand square feet of bicycles throughout the year, which would let us hire mechanics and build capacity in our volunteer programs with confidence.

In Ogden, we’re starting to see more and more volunteers and donations, we’d love to see you volunteering in the shop Thursday 6-8, or buying bikes and fixing up your own bike Tuesday/Wednesday 5-9 pm and Saturday 12-5. Spread the word! We’re also hiring a mechanic, check on Cycling Utah’s job board (cyclingutah.com/jobs) or on our site for more info.

In partnership with Sorenson Unity Center, we’re looking for someone to spearhead a kid’s specific location in Glendale, a fantastic opportunity for anyone looking to start a bike collective program from scratch!

For all this and more, get in touch through bicyclecollective.org, or by calling 801-328-BIKE.
