Hometown Storytellers

The pandemic brought with it social isolation, closed businesses, and a general loss of connection to people and places we enjoy. It’s also winter in Michigan with not much to do. 

We have a solution to help with the winter and Covid blues! Hometown Storytellers!

We’re bringing in guests to share cycling adventures on Saturday evenings after the shop closes — time to relax with friends and build community in a socially distanced way. Our Community Room comfortably allows for a small group to gather while staying safe. 

Spend an hour with like-minded folks. Bring your own dinner (or order in). Masks are required when not eating/drinking and attendance is limited to 7 people. Pre-registration is required. 

Our first Hometown Storyteller is Phil Shaw — with Host Andy Miller — NEXT Saturday 1/30 at 5 PM.

“When an old friend of mine moved to the US in 2013 and convinced me to take part in a 100-mile charity ride (in Arizona, no less), I had no idea how hard the cycling bug would bite. At the time I owned a 1998 Specialized FSR that hadn’t turned a wheel since I moved to the US from the UK in 2008. I quickly found myself with a new Felt and taking a (sometimes literal) crash course in road riding in a group. Since then, I have had the great fortune to ride century rides in many great US locations, and also to ride multi-day rides over the Andes and off-road coast to coast in the UK.”

Phil will share some photos and stories about the ride in South America, where he rode from Santiago to Chile, over the Andes to Mendoza, and back to Santiago. A total journey of 535 miles with 34,890 ft of climbing.
