Yoga for Cyclists at Hometown Bicycles of Brighton, MI

This past Monday marked the inaugural, weekly, in-shop Yoga for Cyclists class series, led by the supremely talented (as you can see by the cyclists melting into the floor) Jessica Beaubien of Soul Stretch Yoga.

If you think tension is the hallmark of a good ride or that touching your toes is for runners, you NEED this class. Heck, we ALL need this class.



Customer Highlight: Biking with benefits of the life-altering variety

Leslie Cook, a cool customer of Hometown Bicycles

If you look up “enthusiasm” in the dictionary, there should undoubtedly be a picture of Leslie Cook.

Leslie’s taken to mountain biking like a fish to water. Here’s his story in his own words:

“I started riding my old style steel trail bike to get into shape.  It was fun gravel grinding on back roads but started getting boring when riding by myself.  I wasn’t very motivated either, until my kids started to get on me about my health.  When I finally took a look at myself and realized I couldn’t see my belt buckle anymore and had to lean to see my shoes, I decided things must change if I wanted to live to see my grandkids and enjoy them.

I joined a biggest loser contest at work, started getting in shape, and started riding my bike again.  I’ve lost 35 pounds, kept it off, and started trail riding.

I have been riding two years now, rode in my first Iceman, and finished.  I could not have accomplished this without the support from Home Town and the support of the riders I have have met (plus the ripping tune up I got from Shaun.)  I am looking forward to continuing my friendship with these wonderful people and encourage others to do so also.  Look forward to seeing you all on the trails.”
