Customer Appreciation Sale, June 28th, Thanks.

Guys we were all shocked when people started coming in with the Standard Examiner Readers Choice awards and it listed us as the #1 bike shop in Ogden.  We were appreciative beyond belief but at the same time were trying to figure out how to say thanks to all those who voted for us.  We decided that adding one additional sale this year to say thanks would be a good way to show our thanks to each and every one of you.

So here it is, this Saturday June 28th for one day only we will be repeating the sale we usually only do three times a year.  All current model bicycles in stock will be 15% off of msrp, all last years bicycle models in stock will be 20% off, car racks, bicycle trainers and electronics will be 15% off, all other general bicycle accessories will be 25% off.

As I said before thanks so much, it really does mean a ton to everyone here, Matt.

Group Road Ride On, Trail Condidtions.

Well it looks like barring any unexpected weather we should be looking at great weather for a group road ride tomorrow.  Plan on meeting here at Skyline Cycle at 6:00p.m. and getting ready.  We will leave no later than 6:30p.m. and hopefully a little earlier so we don't run out of light.  See you guys all tomorrow.

This Sunday I rode up Wheeler Creek Canyon to check and see how the trail sare doing above.  They are with out a question still muddy as heck.  I know because I was bummed to see super muddy mountain bike tracks coming onto the old Snowbasin road right above the Art Nord parking lot.  I don't think people generally ride muddy trails with the intent of hurting them, but man it destroys a ton of traill work supper quick.  I guess know where to ride early season and if you see folks headed out onto something that may be muddy or is block off  in a nice way explain how bad it is for the trail.  Its up to us to help the trails so we can enjoy them later. As usual you guys rock see you out there.

Group Road Rides Begin, Ride Against Cild Sexual Abuse This Weekend!!

Its time to get started with the group road rides again.  We would have got going a little earlier but lack of light is one of the most difficult situations cyclists face.  That being said we will have our first group ride on May 7th, we will meet here at Skyline Cycle at 6:00p.m. and will leave the parking lot no later than 6:30p.m..  There are two groups that go out every week, we have a drop group that goes around 30ish miles at what ever pace they like.  The second group is the no-drop section, we go about 17mph-19mph and will travel around 22 miles total.  No-drop means that I am there for flats, repairs, ect. and I am the last to leave the parking lot and the last to came back or know where everyone else is, basically this section is completely supported.

This Saturday the 26th we will be helping host the first annual Ride Against Child Sexual Abuse ride.  This ride will begin at 1:00p.m. at the High Adventure Park at 251 E. 18th street. This ride is purely for fun and will be going about two miles, bring the family, bring friends, for the first 50 people with a donation of $10 there will be a free shirt and after the ride there will be free Creamies for everyone.  Should be a heck of a good time, we look forward to seeing everyone there.
