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, 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.

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.
