Downtown Brighton, Thursday 7/4 at 8 AM
Each summer, we really look forward to the Brighton 4th of July Parade — in a collaboration with Brighton Optimist Club, Hometown Bicycles leads a family-friendly ride down Main Street for all ages! It’s a fantastic red, white and blue display of awesomeness to see so many people on bikes, enjoying this tradition with their children and grandchildren.
You have two great options for participating:
- Decorate your bike at home and meet us at the contest site at 8 AM. Judging of decorated bicycles will take place at Lynch & Sons, located at 600 E. Main Street in downtown Brighton. Then join our procession in the parade at 10 AM!
- Bring your bike and decorations to Hometown Bicycles between Saturday 6/29 and Wednesday 7/3. Decorate your bike at the shop and leave it with us — we will deliver it to the contest site on the 4th! This is a super convenient option so that you can park and easily make your way over to Lynch & Sons without needing to lug your bikes with you. We will also transport your bikes back to Hometown, allowing you to stay downtown and enjoy the festivities.

You’ll be riding in the Parade with Hometown’s own Shaun, Dawn and kids! Bring YOUR kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews, and join them for a ride down Main Street!

To thank you for shopping locally:
Congratulations, new BICP Level 1 Coaches!
WE LOVE PARTNERSHIPS!
Thank you to MiSCA for bringing the Bike Instructor Certification Program (BICP) Level 1 certification course to Michigan and for allowing us to be part of it! We were happy to donate the use of our Community Room and shop to keep everyone dry during the torrential rainfall that pelted the Brighton area during your three-day training.
This hands-on training prepares students for leading rides and mountain bike guiding in a group situation. Completion of the course, in addition to passing a practical exam, qualifies an individual to assess the level of each rider in their group, assess and diagnose common errors within each rider’s fundamental skills, prepare and implement action plans in an emergency situation, and make responsible choices in picking trail routes for specific groups.
