How Cycle Shade Started

Cycle shade was created by a biker trying to solve a problem. He loved his bike and the freedom and power he felt when he was on it… He also loved his wife and having her ride with him made everything more enjoyable!

Then, one very hot day in California, his wife told him that there was a problem and she didn’t want to ride with him anymore unless he fixed it.

The problem? She was tired of sitting on a scorching hot and uncomfortable seat!  Thus, Cycle Shade was born, and it wasn’t long after creating his own that other bikers started asking where they could get one.

It was so popular and successful that he started selling Cycle Shades at rallies and bike shows.  For personal reasons, in 2019 he sold the company to us, the Bailey family!

We’re totally stoked that you’re visiting our site today!

Just say NO to hot seats!

We’ve all experienced it. You gear up for a nice ride, grab your riding partner, and hop onto your bike… only to realize that your seat is blazing hot!

There’s nothing more annoying than having to move your bike into the shade or look around for something to use to cover your seat. Then you have to wait around for it to cool down enough to ride.

This whole process can turn your fun and enjoyable cruise into a struggle.
