THIS WILL BE OUR MOST ACTION-PACKED, FAMILY-FRIENDLY PARTY YET!
We’re celebrating 1, glorious year in our new bicycle adventure center with a family-geared funfest of activities, including fat bike demo, group trail ride, indoor art fair, kids crafts, fitness classes, “ask the experts”, and a chili cook-off and seasonal goodies to wrap it all up!
Feast your eyes on the bursting-at-the-seams activities roster below. Specific times and class sign ups will be included in next week’s newsletter but, for now,
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 12 FROM NOON – 6PM!
So, before we wow you with what you absolutely won’t want to miss, we’d like to say TWO THINGS…
For all of you seriously cool customers who’ve got Iceman Cometh mountain bike challenge on the brain – AND on your Sunday “to do” list – your entire Hometown crew wishes you a fast trail, glorious fall weather, and the heart of a warrior. Be sure to drop by our Team Hometown tent for warmth, chili, and camaraderie. We can’t wait to hear your ride stories at our November 12 post-Iceman party!
Our magnificently monster-tired Jamis fatties have, as promised, thundered into our shop with enormous glory and fanfare. And still more are on their way to round out your pre-order selection… just in time, too, for the November 12 fat bike demo. Come in and be one of the first to test ride the new models!
Here’s an impressive rundown on why you should absolutely attend our November 12th funfest extravaganza (look for times and sign-up links in next week’s email):
