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.

Looks Good For Group Road Ride, Repairs Are Fast Right Now!

It looks like we will have good weather for the group ride.  The weather report says that it will be in the mid 90's though so sunscreen and lots of water. We are also only 2-3 days on standard repairs right now, that could change but that's pretty fast for summer.  See you all soon, thanks.

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

Last Group Ride For The Season!

We have had a great season and have enjoyed riding with all of you.  We had the best turn out this year that we have ever had in 10 years, thank you. We have had some of the best weather as well, a little hot at times but overall great. The only unfortunate thing about tonight's ride is that a lot of the guys from the store have things going tonight including me watching my children so we won't be on the last ride of the season. Don't be strangers though we still have a ton of great riding left it just stinks it gets dark so early

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 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.
