With cold weather comes warm hearts. Every winter Collective volunteers refurbish and provide hundreds of children’s bicycles to goodwill programs like Sub-for-Santa, Angel Tree, and more to be given as presents during the holiday season. Warm your heart and someone else’s by donating a bike and volunteering your time. There is also the option of becoming a Sponsoring Member of the Bicycle Collective by financially sponsoring bike(s) to be given away in our Bikes for Goodwill Organizations program; children in our Earn-a-Bike program, or rides in our Trips for Kids program. www.slcbikecollective.org/sponsor
The Park Tool School (www.parktool.com/clinics_training) is still taught every Monday starting at 6pm at the Community Bike Shop (2312 S. West Temple). Classes don’t build on each other, so jump in at any time. Participants will learn how to true wheels, adjust derailleurs and brakes, and general skills. See the Collective’s website (www.slcbikecollective.org) or call 801-FAT-BIKE for a schedule.
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.
