Kona Bicycle Demo! May 21st!!

We are having our annual Kona bicycle Demo May 21st at the 9th street trail head.  The cool thing is it worked out that the Bike Park was also doing a fundraiser that day at the same trail head.  That means there will be a bunch of folks hanging out on the side of a mountain having a good time and riding cool bikes.  I think that Willy the guy from Kona requires a photo ID to ride one of the cool bikes he's bringing.  I believe he will have Process 134's, Process 153's, and a number of other bikes.  If you are looking to try a specific bike let me know and I will get a hold of him and see if it is possible.  The event will go from 10:00a.m.-4:00p.m.  If you have questions call 801-394-7700 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Awesome Day Yesterday, Repair Time Line, Skyline Turns 10 Years Old!

Talk about a beautiful day yesterday. I went over to the mouth of Cold Water Canyon around noon and was blown away because the whole parking lot was full. As I rode I bumped into friends and customers around every corner. It was awesome to see everyone out and about, maybe summer has arrived to stay, here's crossing my fingers. On a side note Skyline Cycle turned 10 years old on 04/01/06, we couldn't have done it without all the support, thanks.

Back And Open For Business! Winter Trails Day At North Fork Saturday The 9th!

We are back and ready for 2016 season, thanks for a great year in 2015 .  Its been a little chilly out there but from what we here the Southern Bonneville Shore Line trail is packed down from 22nd street trail head to above Weber State. We hear that the snow by the ski resorts even though groomed is still soft to ride on with fat bikes. The roads are dry for now and if you decide to head out remember we have tons of cold weather clothing on hand.

We now have three fat bikes for rent, a small, a medium and a large at $45 per day. I went out yesterday and this morning, I had an alright time but  because of the wind it was still soft in areas where it had drifted. As more trail get ridden we will post about them. This Saturday is Winter Trails Day at North Fork Park and we will be there with our three rentals so you can try a fat bike at no charge.
