We’re winding down for the year, Homies. Each December, we close the shop for a period of time to enjoy the holidays and to allow our crew to spend time with their families and friends. Be sure to stop in over the next few days for your last-minute service needs, to drop off your bikes for winter storage, and to get gift certificates for the cyclists in your life. 

The shop will close at 5 PM on Thursday, December 23rd, and will re-open at 10 AM on Friday, January 7th. 

Stay tuned next week for a letter from Santa, er, Shaun, with his 2021 recap and well wishes for a Merry Christmas!

THANK YOU, Cycling Community!

Look what you did to make this year’s Toys for Tots drive a success! With a bit of friendly competition among mountain bikers, road riders, and e-bikers, Hometown was able to make a collective donation of 109 toys for children in need. Thank you. We appreciate you!

Here are the rankings: 

  • Mountain bikers: 69
  • Road riders: 29
  • E-bikers: 11

A special shout out to Hometown crew member Mike Newman and his wife Marybeth for making this toy drive an annual tradition at the shop. 

FREE Winter Storage!
Don’t forget! Through February 28, we’re offering free storage with the purchase of a tune-up. If you’re interested in winter storage without the tune-up, we offer it for $10/month.

We all know how busy the service shop gets come March. It’s no surprise. After being cooped up all winter, everyone is stir crazy and can’t WAIT to get out there and ride as soon as the spring weather allows. 

We can’t stress this enough: Bring your bike in for a tune-up over the winter!

Also, with shortages and delays, this allows time for us to receive needed parts for your repairs during months you won’t be using your bike. This will save you the trouble of coming in for service during peak season when our turnaround time is longer. Instead of being frustrated this spring, take advantage of this plan-ahead option and be the first one hitting the trails on March 1st! Get those bikes in before our holiday break!

Women’s Personal Protection Course

Join us for a female-only self-defense class (for ages 12+). We ran this class in the fall and had a great turnout, so we’re going to make it a regularly scheduled event! 

Monday, January 24
7-8:30 PM
The H.U.B. Incubator at Hometown Bicycles

Instructors from Keep and Bear LLC will cover multiple facets of protection including situational awareness, instinctual responses, and nonphysical applications. From there, physical force applications are instructed including striking, force multipliers (hand weapons), and using them to assist in strikes and escapes from common grabs and other grapples. Don and Berge are engaging and informative instructors; attendees will feel comfortable and confident with the material presented. Ladies, we hope you will join us for this important class.
