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

Group Road Ride 07/20/16

Looks like it is going to be super hot tonight.  Unfortunately there will be no one from the store on the ride tonight due to scheduling conflicts.   If you are planning on going tonight be sure to bring all the stuff you need in case you have a flat or a break down and lots of water.  We will also not be able to store extra gear inside the store because we will be gone by the time the ride ends.  If you are new and need a map come in before we close and we will get you one.  With the weather it wouldn't be a bad night to call if off as well. Sorry we are going to miss you tonight we will see you all next Wednesday

Group Road Ride Cancelled For 2015 Season!

This has been one of the best group road ride seasons that we have had in the history of the store.  We had great turn out almost every ride, we saw familiar faces and new faces that became friends.  With the weather taking a change and light fading earlier we decided to throw the towel in for the season so that we end on a high note. Thanks for a great season.

So usually right after the Logan To Jackson Hole race we stop doing our weekly group ride.  The weather has been so nice though we decided to keep going as long as it stays fair and we have adequate light.  To do this though we are going to have to bump up the start time.  Tomorrow plan on riding but we will be meeting at 5:45p.m. and leaving at 6:00p.m. or as close to it as we can.  See you all tomorrow, as always if you have any questions call 801-394-7700 or shoot us and email.

Group Ride Looks Good, Thanks For A Great Sale!

Tonight for out weekly group road ride the weather looks good.  As I check various different weather sites everyone says there is a small chance of rain, but they've been saying that for the last like three weeks and nothing happens.  If it looks bad give a call or check the sites online.

On another note thanks for making us super busy last week for our annual summer sale.  A ton of folks picked up new bikes and gear just in time for fall riding. I can't wait for the cooler temperatures, riding is going to get really nice again.  See you all soon.

Group Road Ride, Fat Bike Rentals In!

The weather tomorrow looks like there is a chance of rain, but plan on the group road ride going unless the weather totally stinks.  If its looking bad keep an eye on the site, facebook, or give a call.

Not that we're even close to winter but in an effort to be ready this year so that all of you can get out and have an opportunity to ride a fat bike, we have a medium and a large Mukluk 3 for rental as we speak.  This a new emerging category of bike that is going to be even more mainstream this year and in years to come.  The shear number of models, levels, and styles available has near doubled since last year.  To say the least we are stoked.

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.
