Up and down the Wasatch Front the Bicycle Collectives are in full swing. With your help the Ogden location has raised over $15000 toward building renovation this year, and a full roof rebuild is underway. In Provo we've stepped up our game with a new professional layout and a number of great bikes fixed up and ready to ride. Join us for our Monday night ride at 9:00 PM every week, and come into the shop Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
In Salt Lake we've expanded to have three paid open shop managers rather than just one, meaning more help when you come in to repair your bike Tuesdays, Wednesdays (Women Only), Thursdays, and Saturdays. Our Monday Volunteer night is as popular as ever, with great classes every week at 6:00 PM. Our valet program is entering its high season and we always need help at every event, check out the calendar on our website to find out where we'll be.
The Salt Lake Location's Bike Prom is coming up May 10th, and all indications show this year's party to be huge. Come ride your finest cruiser and dress to impress! Presale tickets are cheaper and encouraged, pick them up at bikeprom.com.
For those gearing up for Bike to Work Week, encourage your friends to come by the Salt Lake Collective the week before! We'll be expanding our hours, offering open shops from Tuesday-Friday 12:00-9:00pm May 6th through the 9th. We will be closing early (4:00 PM) on Saturday for Bike Prom. Furthermore, in conjunction with a number of other stops around the city, On May 15th we'll be manning a commuter pit stop at 800 S. 200 W. at 7-9 AM for everyone riding in to work.
Finally, on May 31st we're very excited to be a part of the Get Into the River event going on up and down the length of the Jordan River Parkway. We'll be providing our valet, and will be leading short family friendly rides up and down the length of the downtown section, from the Peace Gardens to Fischer Mansion.
