2016 marks the first full year of memory-making, adventure-generating, and blow-your-socks-off-bicycle-servicing in your new Hometown Bicycles Adventure Center. And while we always learn from looking back, this year our focus is on bringing you the ultimate bicycle experience going forward.
In other words, expect great things…
Very Happy New Year wishes to you and your family from your Hometown Crew. Can’t wait to see you Saturday, January 2nd at 9am!
STUDENT BICYCLE ART THAT SOLD!!!
SOLD! Heather is the proud new owner of Ellen Bartush’s bicycle with flowers drawing (left). McKenna Baumker’s cool bicycle map collage was purchased as a surprise Christmas gift (right).
Before Christmas, two of our incredible customers bought two of the uber-talented, Brighton High School students’ bicycle art pieces. SO. AWESOME.
So, congratulations Ellen Bartush and McKenna Baumker on your first art sale at Hometown Bicycles! (Remember, students keep 100% of the proceeds.)
Kudos to BHS art teacher, Maureen Ray, for successfully challenging her students to create!
And THANK YOU to the amazing people who chose to support these students’ artistic endeavors. Who knows what you may have inspired!
