Our Ogden Community
We've been actively involved with the Ogden community for nearly 50 years. We love Utah...from the amazing mountains to the beautiful Great Salt Lake...and we're committed to making it a better place to live. We believe that bicycles are a simple solution to many challenges we face including traffic congestion, air quality, and health and wellness. Please become part of a simple solution...ride a bike!
Fatbike Demo Day at Ogden Nordic
Our fatbike demo at North Fork Park was a ton of fun! It dropped a bunch of snow the day before, so the trails were a little soft, but we still had a blast. Thanks to everyone who showed up. With any luck we converted a rider or two. We really appreciate the crew at Ogden Nordic for their hard work prepping the trails and keeping everyone informed of the conditions. You guys do a great job! Thank you!
It's crazy to think that every year tens of millions of tubes are thrown in to land fills. Don't throw your old tubes and foldable tires away any more! We've joined with Tannus to offer you an easy tube recycling program. All you have to do is drop them off at The Bike Shoppe. We'll take care of the rest.
Community Christmas 2023
This is now our 5th year of participating in Weber county's Community Christmas event. We've found it to be a great way to help out the local community during the holidays. It's co-sponsored by OWCAP (Ogden-Weber Community Action Partnership) and the Odgen school district. It provides gifts for over 2000 kids from Weber, Davis, and Box Elder counties. Parents of benefiting families participate in life skills classes including parenting and finance before receiving any assistance. A resource fair serves as a tool to connect these families with the resources they need to help them in their current situations. It's a great event, and we encourage everyone to participate with us in the coming years. Thanks for all your help so far!
We recycle well over 1000 lbs of metals every year. We do our absolute best to repair components so they can function as long as safely possible. When a component works, but the performance has diminished to the point where the customer is no longer satisfied, it's donated to the Ogden Bike Collective. Components that are no longer functional or safe to use are donated to customers for art projects or recycled.
We recycle over 200 lbs of cardboard and packing paper every week. We save the best bike boxes to reuse and donate to customers who need to pack and ship bikes. We reuse packaging materials and small boxes to ship product to online customers.
2020 Community Events
2020 was a crazy year. We've never been so busy and at the same time so worried about our success in the future. 2021 is looking to be a tough one for sure. Just about every race or activity was cancelled for the year, but we were still able to participate in a number of community fund-raising events. We were happy to team up with the Ogden Collective in repairing and donating used bikes for Christmas. We participated in Community Christmas again, and were so grateful for the generosity of our customers in providing gifts for Weber County families. Finally, two amazing customers, Jeff and Tammy Baird reached out to us to help out with the Christmas Tree Jubilee. They were nice enough to send us this letter letting us know how it went. For Jeff, Tammy, and everyone else who went out of their way to do something kind for a neighbor, THANK YOU!! It's people like you that make Ogden such a wonderful place to live.
