How Cycle Shade Started

Cycle shade was formed by a biker trying to solve a problem. This biker loved his bike, and the freedom and power he felt when he was on a ride… 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 created, and it wasn’t long after creating his own that other bikers started asking where they could get their own. The product 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!

Meet the Bailey Family

Cycle Shade is a mother and son team. Terrell initially bought the business and asked his mother Laura soon after if she would become a business partner. At first, she told Terrell no. When he looked at her, bewildered, and asked why — she replied “Because you don’t listen to anything I say!” 

A few weeks later, he asked again and here we are now!

I just got the shade and I LOVE IT!!! YOU did gooooooooood! The chrome really stands out and you're right, it matches the bike beautifully! I can't thank you enough for redoing the design! It is exactly what I envisioned - better actually! You know, you've got a huge fan in Fresno! I'll be sure to keep spreading the word! Thanks again!


Thanks for a Bad Ass Product!!! I have been looking for something to keep my bike cooler and out of the Texas sun. Attached are a few pics of my Cycle Shade at work!
Thanks Again,


Thank you again for the excellent support you have provided. It’s SO refreshing to know there are still some businesses that truly care about their customers AFTER the sale.


We received the order of Gauge Shades and Bike Shades. My husband loved his, “Leader of the Pack” and I love my “Lady Rider”. This was our 2nd order for your shades and they are great. Thank you for the rush on the order and quality product. Love Love Love them.
