THE BEST RIDES IN MI, THE BEST PEEPS TO RIDE WITH & THE BEST TEAM EVER
Last week, we had RECORD ATTENDANCE
(in the whole history of Hometown!
) at our “Why Jamis” clinic. WOW!!! Let’s see if we can top it this week…This Wednesday, February 24, from 6-9pm
, is the final clinic in our Winter Clinic Series, covering Michigan’s most bike-friendly trails
, its coolest cycling events
, our new Shop Rides
, the women-only cycling group Hometown Green Gals
, and how to become a part of Team Hometown Bicycles
It’s another carb-loading clinic with pizza and beer… gotta get you ready for March 1st – a.k.a. Cycling Season!!! In addition to Shaun, you’ll also have a chance to meet and hear from the co-creator of Hometown’s Green Gals, plus our awesome Team Captains.
NOTE: While Team Hometown Bicycles has a competitive ride group, it also includes a non-race Club team for beginners to pros, trail cyclists to road junkies, fund-raisers to just-for-funners. Our mission is to have fun and to positively promote the sport of cycling. If that sounds like your “cup o’ tea”, then join up!
For anyone who’s bumming over missed clinics… don’t!! We’ll continue running bike clinics throughout the year. To start, check out March’s Intro to Adventure Racing clinic
“INTRO TO ADVENTURE RACING” CLINIC
is a team scavenger hunt in the great outdoors. Teams are given topographical maps, work together to locate checkpoints, and have to finish in a specified time. Adventure Races generally involve bike travel, paddling, and navigating on foot.This Saturday, March 5th clinic
will provide a general introduction to Adventure Racing and give you the confidence to try a race like MI Adventure Club’s ‘Get Your Bearings Adventure Race’
in Brighton Recreation Area on May 7th. You’ll learn everything a novice racer needs to know about Adventure Racing – including topographic maps, compasses and navigation (a.k.a. orienteering.)
Immediately following this event, be sure to hang out and meet the lovable faces of Last Chance Pet Rescue! Read more below…
