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.

Skyline Jerseys For 2014, Group Road Rides

We just got conformation that we should be receiving a fresh stock of Skyline Cycle Jerseys.  I know, I know that those of you who have wanted them in the past have had to wait until like June or July in the past, sorry about that.  This year we decided to get our collective butts in gear and get them here so you can have a whole riding season in them.  We have been told by Cannari that they will be in on the 24th of April give or take a day.  We brought in 30 units in varying sizes to make sure we have stock on hand.

We are looking to start group road rides towards the end of April, keep an eye on the calendar as we get closer and I will make sure to post up the rides and announce them here on the site and on Facebook.  Speaking of April our first sale is just around the corner so get ready for that, 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th to be exact.  Hope you are all having a great season so far.

Welcome to the 2014 Riding Season, Spring Sale,Price Matching For Sure!

I am happy to say that it looks like we are starting into what will be an excellent season of riding.  I'm not one that believes that all the cold weather is done, but to heck with it I'll ride anyway. Right up front, thanks for letting us serve your cycling needs, I and the staff appreciate your business more than I can express.

As usual we have our spring sale coming the second weekend in April, usually we only run the sale for three days but as of this year we are extending it to 4 days.  This years sale days will be April 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th and all the sale details are listed on the calendar tab at www.skylinecyclery.com.

Two other things that we have started doing this year are aggressive price matching any bicycle retailers in our area on goods and product as well as adding a consignment area of the store.  With competition increasing in our area we want our customers to know that if they find the same product at any other location locally for a better price, whether on sale or not, we will call and confirm that price and then match it.  This allow you to shop at Skyline Cycle always knowing that you are getting the best price offered period, combined with the best knowledge and customer service.

We have built up an inventory of high quality used gear that has been checked by our staff and  items are on sale as we speak.  As the year continues we will be adding to this area but there are already screaming deals on used gear here.  We have also revamped the percentage we take as retailers to benefit those selling goods.  Let us know if we can help.  Looking forward to the rest of 2014, thanks all, Matt.

Hey guys hope all is well, just a quick note on a few things that are taking place. Raleigh and Felt are offering deals on their bikes this season for a month or so.  Raleigh is offering a $50 dollar mail in discount on select alloy road and mountain bikes, and $100 off select carbon models during the month of March. Felt is offering a mail in voucher for every Felt bike test ridden from now to April 15th that will enter you into a drawing for a 5 night 4 day trip to Hawaii to check out the IRONMAN championships.  Not bad for buying a bike, or test riding  one.

Spin class trainers are now on sale and I have decided that for $250 you can have the trainer, the block and the mat, MSRP on the trainer alone is $380.00 so this is a nice package to keep you going through cold spells this spring or all of the cold season next winter.  We are also closing out all in stock cold weather gear at 45% right now until its gone.

Other than that welcome to another riding season, thanks for picking us as your store.  If you need anything at all don't hesitate to let us know. Thanks, Matt.

Trail Condidtions!

As a lot of you I have been riding quite a bit already and the trails that are ready have been amazing.  I was thinking though that in a year that has seen the popularity of fat tire bikes and good weather it is still important to remember that the trails that we all love a supper sensitive this time of the year.  I have been on the Bonneville Shoreline Trail North of 12th street for about a week and its stable for riding baring any other adverse weather.  It sounds like the Shoreline South of 12th street is still wet and should be avoided, as you guys are out on trails let us know how they look and we will post it up.

As far as trail conditions, if there are sections of the trail system that are in need of repair flip me a note and we will pass  it along proper channels or organize the work our selves if it is appropriate.  Welcome to another good year, we're excited like you all.
