Conversations about starting a bike cooperative in Cedar City have been happening for several years. In the fall of 2019, the Bike Works started in earnest when a group of concerned citizens got together to discuss ways we could build a more active and healthier community. At that meeting we began to plan the organization, starting with reaching out to other organizations currently working in Cedar City to evaluate the best ways to meet our community's needs. We learned that there were services that we could provide our community. Specifically, we can make biking more assessible by running a workshop where volunteers educate their neighbors about bicycle repair and refurbish donated used bikes. This workshop will support individuals whose primary means of transportation is cycling, educate about bicycle repair and safety to build a more self-reliant and empowered community, and encourage children to live more active, healthier lives.

The Cedar City Bike Works has come a long way since that initial meeting. Here is a list of just a few of our accomplishments over the past year:

1. Formed a board of directors and registered the Cedar City Bike Works as a charitable organization. 

2. Co-hosted an outreach event with the Iron County Care and Share (ICCS) to repair 31 kids bikes for the holidays.

3. Educated 25 students, staff, and faculty on the Southern Utah University campus on basic bicycle maintenance.

4. Repaired three bikes for the clients of the ICCS

5. Gave away our first kid's bike in the fall of 2020.
