Celebrate the Festive 500 with Signature Cycles


Signature Cycles will partner with Rapha and Strava this year to challenge the NY/CT area to ride 500km in 8 days. We will be hosting 2 Festive 500 rides from on the 28th and 29th from our CT and NYC locations.

On Saturday the the 28th, the Signature Cycles NYC studio and Rapha Cycle Club NYC will start with a Metro North train ride and explore roads most New Yorkers have yet to meet. We will travel to Signature Cycles in Greenwich, CT and roll through some of the most idyllic roads NE has to offer. Also we will get a chance to see some beautiful hand built bicycles while at the Greenwich Studio!

There are 3 places to meet:
1. At the Cycle Club at 9:30am
2. At Grand Central station in time for the 10:04 train to Greenwich CT
3. At Signature Cycles in Greenwich CT – 14 Railroad Ave. – 11:00am

We will have a moment at Signature’s Studio in CT to fill the jersey pockets and have a light snack. The ride will be 28 miles of twisty NE roads.

For ride details, please RSVP to: Blake@signaturecycles.com

Please upload the route if you have a GPS device as there are many turns.

The train is off peak and the round trip ticket is $18.  All Riders will need to carry an MTA bicycle permit ($5 for a life long pass). Please allow time at G.C. to fill out a small form and purchase this if you do not have one. 

Riders can expect to return to G.C. at 3:08pm or 3:38pm

On Sunday the 29th, we will again join rides, and head north via 9W towards Nyack. The ride will be approximately 70 miles, and in Signature and Rapha fashion, we will try to keep the route interesting by adding some alternative roads less traveled.
There will be 2 meeting points:
1. Signature Cycles Manhattan – 8:45
2. Rapha Cycle Club NYC – 8:30

Signature Greenwich welcomes Abraham Soler

It’s not just the leaves that are changing in Greenwich!  We’d like to extend a warm welcome to our new team member, Abraham Soler.  Abraham, who brings 10 years experience in the cycling industry, will be working in our Greenwich Studio.  We asked Abraham to tell you something about himself.  In his own words:

“I was born in Bogota, Colombia and I have been around bicycle wheels and frames since I was a baby in my crib. My father was a professional cyclist who raced in the 1986 Tour de France with the “Cafe de Colombia” Team.

I moved to the US after I finished school, looking for a better future. When I arrived in 2003, I started working in a bike shop as a mechanic and then moved into sales, all while learning English the hard way. At the same time I started competing in the road racing scene in NYC. My goal was to work my way up to be a Category 1 and one day return to Colombia and do a local race, just like my father.  In 2009, I was ranked number 1 Category 3 road racer in the US and in 2013, I achieved my upgrade to Category 1. This allowed me to compete in my first UCI event in Bucks County, PA with the top professionals in the US and get invited to Trinidad to participate in my first international race.

I have been part of Foundation’s Elite Cycling Team in NYC Elite Team for the past 5 years. I currently live in Manhattan with my wife Karen. I am very happy to be part of the Signature Cycles team!”

Please stop by the Greenwich Studio to meet Abraham, or join our 9am Saturday Ride and chase him up a few hills!

Hector Picard Round Two



In July of 2011 we had the pleasure of working with the I Will Foundation athlete, Hector Picard. Designing a bicycle for a double arm amputee presented some interesting challenges that we were excited to tackle. A blog post detailing the unique solutions to overcome these challenges for his first bike can be found here. This past May, misfortune struck Hector when his custom bicycle was stolen from the back of his car in Florida.
A collaborative effort between Signature Cycles, the I Will Foundation, and generous industry partners got Hector back on the road as soon as possible.
Thanks to Seven Cycles, Shimano, Zipp Speed Weaponry, and the I Will Foundation,  Hector was able to get a replacement bike made so that he could get get back to riding.
