Big changes are coming to the Bicycle Collective!
We officially have a home. Thank you City of St. GeorgeCouncil for the support that you have given to us, this opportunity will be very beneficial to our community.
In the next few months we will be working hard on getting the store set up so that we may be able to provide bicycle education programs to the community as well as have a place where we can sell and fix bikes.
We will be looking for volunteers to help get the shop ready any time that the community can give would be appreciated. Stay tuned for more information.
The first order of business is the change in our name to “St. George Bicycle Collective”, it is necessary to be in line with the other collectives in Utah. Without their support and knowledge we wouldn’t exist. Thank you Clint Wilson and Davey Davis and the Southern Utah Bicycle Alliance

Whether a youngster just learning to ride, a commuter on the way to work, a road racer crossing the finish line, or an airborne BMX rider, everyone who bicycles has one thing in common: They know a great thing when they feel it.
Because bicycling isn't just fun. It is also good for the environment-and for you. Each ride you take helps cut down on traffic congestion, fuel consumption and vehicle emissions. Studies how that pedal pushing on a regular basis can help reduce the risk of obesity and heart disease, while improving muscle tone and strength. And when it comes to lowering stress, bicycling is like therapy on wheels!
So what are you waiting for? Get set once again to feel the breeze in your face, the swooping thrill of coasting down a hill, or the sense of accomplishment when you make it to the top of a steep grade. Climb on. Grip the handlebars. And pedal, pedal, pedal! ... See MoreSee Less
