Framed Fat Tire Bikes at Hometown Bicycles - fat bike rental

Are you familiar with our Rental Program? 

That’s right! We rent bicyles! Whether you want to try out one of our Saturday rides, rent for a day, or rent for several days, we can meet your needs.

We currently have a fleet of Fat Bikes available… one in every size! 

 Rental Rates: 
$25 for one ride
$50 for one day
$120 for 3 days
$200 for 5 days
Did you know we have a weekly Fat Bike Friendly Ride every Saturday, trail conditions permitting? We bike snow. We bike cold. We bike wind. We bike mild, spring-like winter days. We bike it ALL!

This week’s ride!
Mother Nature is planning snow for this weekend! Let’s keep our fingers crossed that she follows through! Regardless, we will be riding the trails of Island Lake Recreation Area. Meet at the shop at 9:15 AM and roll out at 9:30 AM. Be sure to set those tire pressures low if we get the snow that is predicted. We will have two separate groups to accommodate all skill levels. The A group will be riding the entire system this week. Expect to return to the shop at 12:30 PM. The B group is TBD. If you have not filled out a waiver for 2019, please do so before the ride!

Young Women’s Entrepreneurship Event: NEW DATE!

Apologies to anyone who had already marked their calendars for this AWESOME event we’re planning — we have changed our original February date to Tuesday, March 12th from 6:00-7:30 PM. This is to ensure that we can offer you the most fabulous speaker lineup possible! You will not be disappointed!

Next week’s newsletter will reveal the agenda for the evening, including our headlining presenter and members of our Q&A panel, as well as a link to register for this FREE event.

The evening will be chock full of fun and invaluable information to help the young women in our lives explore and develop their entrepreneurial talents. If you are a middle school or high school student, or a young woman in her late teens/early 20’s, who is interested in starting your own business (or already have!), you will not want to miss our Young Women’s Entrepreneurship event.

Parents/guardians are also welcome to join us.

Your Hometown ladies, Dawn and Leslie, look forward to creating this special evening for you!
