Group Road Ride 06/28!! Closed Tuesday July 4th

This Wednesday looks like it will be great for a ride so we will plan on meeting as usual in the parking lot of the store and leaving no later than 6:30.  Just a heads up for all those riding with me on the no drop ride.  I have shortened the ride and am now taking a right hand turn that leads us in front of Fremont High while the rest of the group heads straight and goes a little farther, this has allowed all of us to finish about the same time.

On another note we will be closed down Tuesday the 4th for the holiday but will return for normal business hours on the 5th.  Have a great holiday and be safe, it makes it harder to ride a bike if you don't have all your fingers.

Group Ride Starts Wednesday 05/17, Skyline Jerseys Are In!

I know we are a little later in the season than we have been in the past to get going with the Wednesday evening group ride but in my defense I made the mistake of actually believing the weather forecast.  That being said we are looking forward to another great season of riding with our friends and customers.  As usual we meet at 6:00p.m. in the evening or close to that time and will leave the parking lot as close to 6:30p.m. as possible.  We go 22 miles and have about three different groups of riding levels, fast guys and ladies will be going over 24mph on average, mid pack moves between 20-22mph, we will all be on the same route and I lead the no drop section that moves 17-19mph.

On a different topic after months of not having in our own Skyline Cycle jerseys they have finally arrived and we have full size runs.  T-shirts are on the way but have not come in yet

Kona Demo 20-22nd Of April, Trail Dig 22nd Street Saturday Morning!

Couple of cool things happening this week.  Starting Thursday morning at opening we will have 9 Kona mountain bikes here at the store to be taken out for demo.  The Kona demo guy has asked that we get a copy of a drivers license, and hold a credit card and then you can go out and try one of these sweet bikes.  He will have Hei Hei Trails, Hei Hei Dl, Process 134's and 153's and a carbon Honzo.  We want rides to last at most an hour and half and then we would like the bike back so other people can ride them as well.

Saturday April 22nd at 8:00a.m. we will be meeting at the 22nd street trail head to do some finish up work and a section of trail that was just put in a couple weeks ago.  It awesome to do trail work because it rocks but this Saturday Comcast will be donating money to Ogden Trails for every volunteer that shows up. Bonus right we get get trail work done, we get to ride sweet sections that we maintain and Ogden trails gets more money to make and maintain more trails.  I'm in, see you all there. I will have tools, bring gloves, a hat and some water,  If you have any questions give a call to 801-394-7700, or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Two New Brands, Repair Timeline!

Welcome to what looks like the beginning of another great riding season.  It looks like it might warm up a little and hopefully we stay that way so we can all start to get out and ride.  We are going to continue on with the brands that we have worked with in the past, but we have added Scott bicycles to the floor as well as a new apparel line with Club Ride. Check out their web sights and let us know what you think.

The tune-up special ended yesterday and we are now back to our regular $55.00 tune price.  We have been holding at about the rate of a 4-5 day turn around time with tune-ups and larger repairs.  As usual if you need something simple or not that time consuming give us a call and see if we can get you in faster.

As always thanks for letting Skyline Cycle be your bicycle store, we appreciate each and every customer and can't wait to ride in 2017 with you all.

Thanks again for allowing me the privilege of teaching the skill that I love, and thanks for being great customer I couldn't do it without all of you.  Looking forward to a great season with all of our customers and friends, here's keeping my fingers crossed for sunny warm weather, Matt.

We are also beginning the process of looking for help for the upcoming season.  We will be taking resumes from anyone interested.  There is no amount of experience needed to apply and on your resume I just want to know who you are, work experience, why you are interested in working at Skyline Cycle and why you think you are one of the individuals that should be picked.  Positions will be a combination of sales and mechanics so if you don't like getting a little dirty and greasy this may not be for you. Spring is just around the corner and we can't weight, see you all soon.

As you need gear we are fully stocked on cold weather gear, apparel, tires, helmets ect. Hope to see you out there soon.
