The Bike Collective grew out of a desire from Westminster students to minimize campus traffic and reduce their carbon emissions. The collective believes that cycling connects people to one another and seeks to promote environmental and individual health.
Location: Follow the path (marked with a bike collective sign) across the North Parking Structure entrance on 1200 East.
Need to fix a flat or make a quick adjustment? The Bike Collective has a bike stand, bike pump, and a few basic tools available Monday through Friday in the Environmental Center.

Bike Routes and Safety Resources
Many people want to make biking a part of their transportation mix but are worried about road safety and where to ride or have questions about which roads have bike lanes, what the rules of the road are, how you can make sure cars see you, and how to know if your helmet fits properly. The City of Salt Lake has an online resource that answers these questions and many more, including providing details about local bike routes.
