Hometownies, here’s a rare and completely unexpected opportunity for you…
THIS FRIDAY AND SATURDAY you and your family (if that includes your bike… hey, we won’t judge!) have the opportunity to be immortalized on tintype right here at Hometown…like they did at this year’s Tour de France!
Aerial photographer, Steve Hane of MetroAir Photo LLC, is a fountain of historical know-how, including the highly original art of wet plate photography. He’ll be setting up a temporary studio at Hometown to immortalize you Civil-War-Era-style, and will have your image printed and even framed by the next day! (Check out his site.)
Steve will be here Friday (8/5) and Saturday (8/6) in the late afternoon and evening, and appreciates pre-booking to ensure material availability. CALL STEVE FOR INFO OR TO BOOK YOUR SESSION AT (571) 236-3810 OR EMAIL STEVEHANE@METROAIRPHOTO.COM.

Fist bump to Hometown crewman, Colin Wood, who wound up being one of the fastest in the field. Seriously, we work with the coolest people!
NOTE: If you’re one of the many Relay riders whose bikes took a beating in all the muck and mayhem, just know… WE CAN FIX IT! Thanks to all of you (so many!) who’ve already brought your bikes in for some Hometown love!
But this is one BIG wall and, though we’re close, there are still a few blank patches that need to be numbered up!
Would you like to add YOUR number(s) to our wall of fame? If so, please drop them by, and remember to sign your numbers with your name and the date of the event. Every number that’s up there tells an incredible story. We’d be honored to share yours, too!
Muddy, wrinkled, torn – it all just adds to the intrigue…
Hometown’s partnered with Howell Area Parks & Rec on a simple, new route that will tour you past some of Howell’s most scenic highlights.
Our Team will be on course for basic SAG, route assistance, and all-around good vibes. Plus, we’re offering complimentary bike valet service, so that you can enjoy post-ride festivities without your bike in tow!
