Life hasn’t been easy for 18-year-old Dylan. Having been diagnosed with a form of Autism, he found school and life challenging at times.

According to Dylan, “The first time I came into the shop I was scared because I didn’t know anyone; but I got my bike fixed.

James McCasey, Provo Bicycle Collective - Posted June 13, 2016
James was 31 years old and weighed 321 pounds. He had been overweight most of his life and was ready to make a change. He had assumed that the problem was genetic, not caused by food choices or a lack of exercise. But after a business trip to Mississippi where he overindulged in southern cuisine, he decided it was time to make a change. A friend of his turned him on to an app called “Myfitnesspal” where he could enter everything he ate. It quickly became apparent that he was eating about 1,200 – 2,000 calories more per day than was healthy. Click here to read more.
