We're super excited to announce that we've partnered with the City of St. George, Utah, to begin our 5th brick and mortar location of the Bicycle Collective and we're hiring a f/t Location Director to manage it.
The Bicycle Collective was founded in 2002 and has grown since then to include permanent satellite locations in Ogden, Provo, and Westminster College Campus, as well as our flagship shop in Salt Lake City. The St. George shop will be our 5th location and will have the models of satellite shops in Ogden and Provo to follow as it develops, as well as mentorship from the Executive Director and three Location Directors. We are confident in the success of the model we follow and have no doubt that with the right person in the job, the St. George Bicycle Collective will be effectively financially independent within two years while simultaneously offering all of our core programs to the community.
St George is known locally as a retirement (snowbird) community, and for good reason. Temperatures range from 110 in July to 55 in January. While hot during the summer, the extreme temperatures last less than 3 months and the mild winters more than make up for it. We're anticipating that while the other shops experience slow periods from November-April, St. George BC will continue operations without much interruption. And it is a biking hotspot with hundreds of miles of MTB trails in the region as well as far stretching and low-traffic pavement through some of the most varied terrains in the country in all directions. The UDOT region covering St. George is known for spending more on bicycle infrastructure than any other region in Utah. And it's less than a 2 hour drive to Las Vegas, for what that's worth.
This position is best suited to a candidate who works well with minimal direct supervision and who seeks an interesting challenge with freedom to carry out creative solutions to unforseeable challenges. Support will be available 24/7 from myself, many mentors, and local contacts, but with 4 hours of freeway between SLC and St. George, the Location Director will be working in something of an island. I, for one, would love that. I'm sure there are others on this list that would, too.
Interested candidates should check out the job description and BC programs description at
Instructions to apply are included. The position is open until filled, though we're hoping to have someone committed to the project within a month.
Cheers and happy riding!
