NOT A DULL MOMENT TO BE FOUND AMONG US! …
A lot of Team awesomeness has transpired over the past couple weeks, but then, we’ve come to expect that of a Team that loves cycling, loves their bike shop (thanks, all!), and loves spreading the joy of cycling!
Recently, Hometown represented in a big way at the 13th Annual Tree Farm Relay, with 20 members hitting the trails in fine form. Our congrats to all who rode –> Paul Andres, Cammie Coffey, Leslie Cook, Keith Cowgar, Dennis Doherty, Mike Dyer, Robin Fry, Scooter Gates, Jacob Henriksen, Tom Hermann, Joe Kay, Nancy Kessler, Kevin Machuga, Shannon McKay, Jay Mingis, Roger Pelkey, Jordan Richter, Steve Steinberg, Jim Thompson, and Linc Wehrly!
Check it out (above): Hometown recently rode ACROSS THE STATE OF IOWA (no joke!!!) For his third year running, Joe Ostervik, along with Adam Baranski, successfully traversed the famous 7 day, 491 mile RAGBRAI, boasting over 14,000 feet of climb! Joe, Adam… amazing!!
It’s with great respect that we also acknowledge Team riders Brad Allen (above left) and Ric Williams (above right) who helped raise over $2.25 MILLION for the Make-A-Wish Foundation in the annual Wish-a-Mile Ride! Also, a helmet salute to Team Sponsors Dr. Bill & Louise Horal, who are also avid supporters and devoted riders of this heart-warming ride! This year was apparently the single largest fundraising event for Make-A-Wish of Michigan. Cyclists are amazing people!
TOMORROW (8/8): RIDE A MESSAGE TO CANCER
25 miles of gravel in one of the oldest greatest “strava art” sections known to man! Send a strong message while enjoying 25 fast gravel miles and a BEvERage after!
