Hemingway Foundation Grant

Cover Letter

Dear Brianne Johnson,

The Salt Lake City Bicycle Collective respectfully requests your consideration of a grant in the amount of $8,000, to support our Earn-a-Bike after school and summer program. While the Earn-a-Bike program is found in other cities across the country, since 2003, we are the only ones offering this unique and rewarding youth program to Salt Lake.

The program involves participants from other after school programs such as YouthCity and the YWCA. They come to our community bike shop and pick out a donated bike, over the next seven weeks they dismantle everything and learn how to reassemble it. At the end they take a safety class, and upon successful completion of everything we give them a lock, helmet and they keep their bike.

The smiles, confidence and empowerment exhibited from our kids is what has kept this volunteer program alive and well. Established in 2002, 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.

A copy of our application, along with requested attachments, is enclosed. If you need further information, please feel free to contact me at 801-688-0183. I can be reached via email at Also I realize applications aren't always fun to read, so I encourage you to come and witness our program first hand. Thank you again.

2006 will be the first year that the Salt Lake City Bicycle Collective is required to file an IRS 990 Form. Instead we have included our last few years of annual reports. Since we were established in 2002, we have been able to keep the overhead cost of the organization down. In fact until we hired our first full time employee in September of 2006 we were 100% volunteer run organization. That dedication and countless volunteer hours is what has defined the Salt Lake City Bicycle Collective.

Section 10

Please type, within the space provided, a brief synopsis of your request for funding.

For the last few years we have been running our most cherished program, Earn-a-Bike, solely on the hearts of volunteers and minor donations of tools and supplies. We have done a lot with a little and our proof is in our kids, their smiles, their determination, their new found confidence, and the beautiful bikes they know they made themselves. It is because of their response to our program that we want to offer the program on a bigger scale. This expansion is going to require funding and employees to properly run the program.

Section 11

Nature of the Grantee

The Salt Lake City Bicycle Collective (SLCBC) was founded in 2002 by five enthusiastic bicycle advocates and modeled after other established community shops in Portland, OR and Boston, MA. Following the lead of other community bike shops SLCBC set out to advocate for cyclists and encourage cycling through grassroots efforts here in Salt Lake City. In 2006, the collective not only advocates for cyclists, but provides them with valuable services. We share the virtues of bicycling with our community, and build the bicycling environment through the programs and services we offer. Our mission is to promote cycling as an effective and sustainable form of transportation and to act as a cornerstone of a cleaner, healthier, and safer society. The SLCBC provides refurbished bicycles and educational programs to the community, focusing on children and lower income households. We are also a bike shop, where we allow patrons to bring in their own bikes and use our free community tools.

Since the SLCBC’s founding it has risen above initial goals. We now host five comprehensive programs and are represented in all regional advocacy efforts and events. The Collective’s dedicated volunteers logged 2,500 hours in 2006. This calendar year, they are expected to log over 3,200 hours organizing the shop, fixing bicycles, and administering programs. This, in addition to the hiring of a full-time Project Coordinator will propel expansions and improvements to our core programs in 2007.

The SLCBC has received local and nation recognition for leadership. The Collective spearheaded the creation of the Bike Collective Network, ( The network provides a forum for people involved with community bike shops nationwide to exchange information and share resources. It has been well recieved and after only six months, 76 members from 71 community bike shops are active participants. Last year, Cycling Utah named The Salt Lake City Bicycle Collective the “Road Club of the Year” and Jason Bultman, the Collective’s President, “Bicycle Advocate of the Year.”

The Collective runs a variety or programs, and offers its services to citizens and organizations alike. We donate bikes to the International Rescue Committee, the Odyssey House of Utah, and Navajo Santa. We provide mechanics courses to The Road Home, YWCA, and University of Utah Continuing Education. We also work with local Eagle Scout Troops to organize bike drives and help them to obtain their community service badges. In addition to all this, we provide materials and tools to make jewelry, furniture, wild custom bikes, wind chimes – or anything else one can create – all out of bike parts.

Our main programs include:

Community Bike Shop

During the summer, upwards of 40 patrons use the Community Bike Shop’s facilities to repair or rebuild a bicycle under the guidance of dedicated volunteers. This winter, volunteers successfully renovated and reorganized the shop space, making it highly efficient to both volunteers and patrons. And every shop night, several “old” bikes reach new owners.

Bicycle Education Project

During its freshman year, the Bicycle Education Project provided safety instruction to, and promoted helmet use among, 959 children and adults. By teaching the necessary skills to ride with traffic and avoid accidents, we increase safety for existing bicyclists and encourage more people to travel and commute by bicycle. Instructors certified by League of American Bicyclists' nationally recognized program teach our classes. Bicycle Education courses are regularly offered, inexpensive, easily accessible, and fun. In addition, The SLCBC acts as a catalyst to motivate other organizations and schools in Utah to offer safe-cycling classes.

Bike Valet at the Salt Lake City Downtown Farmer’s Market

Collective showcased programs, and offered free Bike Valet at the Salt Lake City Downtown Farmer’s Market for the 4th year in the summer of 2006. Over the course of the 20 weeks of the market, SLCBC volunteers parked and watched over 1611 bicycles – assisting and encouraging an average of 81 people who chose to ride instead of drive. [Enter small amt of data on local bike theft?]

Earn-a-Bike courses

We collaborate with the YMCA and YouthCity to offer Earn-a-Bike courses. These classes re-acquaint the concept of repair, provide an affordable means of transportation, promotes a sustainable and healthy lifestyle, teach safety, as well as instill self-confidence and pride. Focusing on a low-income demographic, our students take apart and then learn how to rebuild a bicycle from scratch. In 2006, the Collective guided 37 students through the process rebuilding a bike in Earn-a-Bike courses. Students in the courses were able to donate 32 bicycles to resettled refugees living in Salt Lake City, thus extending the legacy of service into the community.

Definition of Problem Areas

Twenty-three percent of Utah’s K-12 youth are responsible for taking care of themselves after school, and the small offering of local after school programs are not meeting Utah’s demand. Youth in self-care spend an average of seven hours per week unsupervised. Of these children, 19% would be likely to participate in an after-school program if one were available to them in their community (After 3pm Study). After school programs have crime reduction potential by engaging youth at the time of day when Juvenile violence peaks (US department of Justice). Additionally, students who participate in extracurricular activities achieve better grades, have lower rates of truancy, attain higher levels of achievement in college and feel more attached to their schools. (Michelle Galley. "Extra Benefits Tied to Extracurriculars" Education Week, October 18, 2000)

Providers of youth programming in Salt Lake City frequently cite the lack of transportation to and from programming as an obstacle to youth involvement. Low-income youth are particularly impacted. Even so, bicycles still remain a viable and often essential means of transportation for youth, allowing them access to recreational activities, after school programs and part-time jobs. The Earn-a-Bike program solves their transportation problem, supplying a way to get around that is independent of bus schedules, promotes health and wellness, and has little to no environmental impact.

While rebuilding their bicycle, the students ensure that each component is mechanically sound and that the bicycle operates properly as a whole. During this process, the students develop their own sense of time management, with the understanding that they need to finish their bike before the end of the class. Our high school aged students are usually able to complete their own bike, and also work on bikes that can be donated to the International Rescue Committee. Upon successful completion of Earn-a-Bike, all students keep a bike they have so carefully built along with a new helmet and lock.

In Utah, helmet use among young cyclists is low, with only 5% of secondary school-age youth wearing helmets when they ride (UDOH 2004). This number is striking, as proper helmet use is the most effective way to prevent head injury and bicycle fatalities. Currently, Utah ranks 11th highest in the nation for bicycle deaths per capita. Furthermore, youth are involved in the majority of bicycle/motor vehicle crashes, and account for 41% of all bicycle deaths in Utah (UDOH). Nationally, youth cycling deaths account for 18% of all bicycle deaths (NCSA).

Though bicycle safety is taught throughout the Earn-a-Bike course, students participate in a more formal, BikeEd bicycle safety course. The course covers bicycle safety checks, fixing a flat, on-bike skills, and crash avoidance techniques. Upon completion, Earn-a-bike students have a full understanding of vehicular cycling, allowing them to bike confidently and safely.

Purposes of Proposed Grant

The purpose of this grant would be to fund a year of Earn-a-Bike courses. Our Earn-a-Bike program provides youth with a positive after school environment, safety training, and a healthy means of transportation, allowing them access to other after school programs. The students learn how to rebuild their bicycle from scratch, and upon successful completion of a safety course, they get to keep their finished bicycle, a brand new lock and helmet. Most of the participants in our Earn-a-Bike after school program will tell you that it was hard work, they learned a lot, their bike is "sweet" and that they would do it all over again. Fueled with more volunteers, participants and resources than before, the Collective can address the growing needs of our community by expanding the Earn-a-Bike after school program. Our goals and objectives are as follows:

GOAL: Teach students basic bike mechanics and bike safety skills, thereby increasing self-sufficiency that accompanies these skills.


  • Students completely disassemble and reassemble a bicycle.
  • Students complete BikeEd safety class (nationally recognized).
  • Every student is taught how to use, and then receives a helmet and a bike lock, and light.
  • Every Earn-a-Bike bicycle that leaves the shop will be mechanically sound

GOAL: Provide a safe, supportive, respective environment for all participants. Offer the program to students regardless of race, ethnicity or income.


  • Fund qualified bicycle mechanics as instructors
  • Target low-income populations who cannot afford daycare.
  • Instructors will act as mentors to kids; kids will act as mentors to each other (working in pairs, etc.)
  • Instill pride in steps to completion, increase students' sense of accountability.

GOAL: Mobilize participants as commuters and champions of healthy, sustainable, environmentally conscious lifestyles.


  • Funding qualified bicycle mechanics as instructors
  • Instructors act as mentors to kids; kids acts as mentors to each other (working in pairs, etc.)
  • Ability to take pride in steps to completion, and learning accountability

When the SLCBC first started the Earn-a-Bike program in 2003, we wanted the program to run year round, four days a week. This year, we are not only meeting that goal -- we are pushing beyond it. Earn-a-Bike classes run Monday-Thursday during the school-year. During the summer we want to offer four classes maximizing shop use to the morning and afternoon. We have successfully lowered our student to teacher ratio, and would like to sustain this for each course. Additionally, we would like the proper tools, supplies, and safety equipment to be available to each student.

Impact of Approval of Grant

A grant of $8,000 will improve the Earn-a-Bike Program in several ways. Most importantly, it will help us reach our goal of offering the course to 168 students each year through fourteen after-school and summer courses. It will also allow us to pay our instructors, which would mean that Earn-a-Bike participants will be instructed by qualified bicycle mechanics at a student to teacher ratio of 4:1. Keeping these ratios small fosters interaction with vested, consistent adults as well as with other participants. The mechanics instructors can guarantee a safe, supportive, respective environment for all participants. A paid instructor, while conveying the value of participation, productive work, punctuality just like a dedicated volunteer, also allows the children dependability.

Another imperative aspect for the program is the availability of tools, workspace, and supplies. Having supplies on-hand facilitates our ability to teach each student basic bike mechanics skills. Each team of two students shares a workstation equipped with the proper tools to rebuild their bicycle. With this grant, we aim to ensure that each pair has tools in ample supply. In addition, each bicycle would be custom powder-coated, transforming someone else’s ‘old bike’ into 'their new bike.’ The powder coating process has been a powerful motivator for students to cherish their new bicycle; they often name it and ride it to school regularly after the program is complete.

When traveling on their new bike, students would travel safer, having received the proper training and equipment (helmet and lock). Currently, students have the option of obtaining their Road I or Kids II certification, a curriculum created by the League of American Bicycles and offered by the Salt Lake City Bicycle Collective using UDOT funding. These courses teach the importance of riding safe with helmets, locks, lights. It is our desire to provide helmets, locks, and lights to students at this time to reinforce and encourage that education.

On Going Funding

The Earn-a-Bike program will require on-going funding. To date we have been able to sustain the program with minimal funding through partnerships and donations of time and resources. We are confident we can continue to do that, but we would like to be able to continue to expand the Earn-a-Bike program. The expansion of the the program would require more funding.

Our current funding is as follows:

  • Shop Use is funded through general public support of our community bike shop.
  • Supplies purchased in bulk through general public support of our community bike shop.
  • Tools, when treated properly, last a long time and we have established direct connections with tool manufacturers to reduce replacement costs.
  • BikeEd Courses are funded through the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT).
  • Helmets are provided by the Utah Deparment of Health's Injury Prevention Program.

On-going Funding Ideal:

  • Powdercoating: If we are able to aquire the air compressor and sand blasting cabinet necessary to prepare frames for powdercoating then we can cut the cost of powdercoating in half. The powerdercoating, though aesthetic, is a big part of the Earn-a-Bike program because it effectively turns "somebody else's old bike" into "my new bike". Our students appreciate this factor of the course, as many of them do not have the joy of "new" items very often. In addition, powerdercoating is an envinronmentally friendly way of painting bikes, as it is aerosol-free. The students are taken to the facility and learn about this eco-friendly technique.

On-going Funding Required:

  • Instructor salaries: As stated previously, paid instructors will provide a much-needed security for this course. The volunteers we have work very hard, and are appreciated as doing so. However, when a different volunteer teaches every week, the students cannot build the kind of relationships we are aiming for. At times, volunteers will call in and cancel last-minute, will not show up, or will come late. If we want to provide a stable and safe environment for our students, we need to have dependable, paid adults to be consistent figures in their bike lives.

All the aspects of the collective are crucial to the successes of the collective, and will require continual funding. However, with the current success, and additional support of foundations, we feel our program's funding opportunities will only increase as we seek more funding sources.

Others Working in the Field

The Salt Lake City Bicycle Collective was originally modeled after the Bikes-Not-Bombs shop in Boston, MA and the Community Cycling Center in Portland, OR. Bikes-Not-Bombs developed, and freely distributes the original instructor training manual for our Earn-a-Bike courses. Many other community bike shops take advantage of this, as we do. Nationally, there are over 70 similar community bike shops working to get kids off the streets, and into productive activities after school like bicycle mechanics.

Many of the community bike shops working with today’s youth are collaborating through the internet. Jonathan Morrison, Project Coordinator of the SLCBC, spearheaded a website specifically for collectives all over the US and Canada to share resources and come together to help each other. In addition, the Youth Bike Education Network (YBEN) is a superb website designed specifically to facilitate the start-up and function of similar organizations on a national and international level. The YBEN site is a resource for groups around the country that want to share handouts, lesson plans and other resources.

Locally there is no one offering Earn-a-Bike classes, or for that matter any local groups focusing on mobilizing and educating low-income youth in the manner that we do. However there are numerous groups that partner with the SLCBC to help us reach our goals. Both YouthCity and the YWCA of Salt Lake provide students, scheduling, registrations, transportation and sometimes an instructor for the Earn-a-Bike courses. Eagle Scout candidates will coordinate with the SLCBC to put on bike drives, where all the bikes are then donated to the SLCBC. These projects are the final requirement to become an Eagle Scout. In addition, we collaborate with the Police Department and the Utah Transit Authority (UTA), as they both donate bikes to the SLCBC. We then give back to the community by donating refurbished bicycles and helmets to the International Rescue Committee (IRC), the Odyssey House, Navajo Santa, the Road Home, and the Columbus Community Center.
