Fat Biking for ALL!
We will host our first Fat Bike ride of the 2021 season TOMORROW!
 When: Saturday, January 9 from 10 AM – Noon
Where: Settlers Park, Hartland

Use the Clark Road entrance and ride the Section 21 trail system located inside Settlers Park. This is a no-drop all-inclusive ride! Team Hometown members will be on-hand to lead and sweep the ride. Whether this is your first time riding a bike in the snow or you’re already well-versed in winter riding, you will have a place to safely participate. It is recommended to have a fat tire or plus tire bike for this ride, as conditions don’t support skinny tires.

This will be a socially distanced ride. You are expected to wear a mask when grouping together and act in a manner to ensure all are following safe practices. Let’s get out there and have some winter fun!

As always a ride waiver and helmet are required to participate. Please complete your waiver HERE.

** This ride is weather-permitting. Please check our event page for the latest updates HERE.

2021 Winter Clinic Series

We have an awesomely informative and enjoyable clinic series coming your way! With so many things shut down due to the ongoing pandemic, we invite you to spend your weekends with us. 

Every Saturday from 5-6 PM, visit our HOME(town) for camaraderie and information-sharing. Alternating between Cycling Clinics and Story Nights, with our shop as your “home away from home,” we look forward to building community with you.

You may now be wondering, what is Story Night? It will be a casual “bring your own dinner” event where we can hang out and listen to fellow cyclists share their adventures. 

To ensure comfort and safety, we are limiting attendance to 7 people at each event. Each person will have their own socially distanced table. If a couple or family attends, they will be able to share one table. Advance registration is required. 

To kick things off, our first clinic will be on Saturday 1/16 — Fat Tire Fixes! For more information and to register, please visit Eventbrite HERE. Our full schedule will be available soon!

Interested in sharing your own adventure at a future Story Night? Have ideas for cycling clinics? Contact our Events Coordinator, Leslie B, at events@myhometownbicycles.com.

There are so many festive reasons to stop by!

Toys for Tots — We have collected 97 toys to date! The bins have been unloaded and we’re ready to fill them again. Thank you, cycling community, for your kindness and generosity!

Free Winter Storage with Tune-Up — Be the early bird who, come spring, isn’t waiting on your bike to be ready to roll. Get your tune-up now and store your bike at Hometown until March 1. Win-win!

Gift Certificate Trade-Up — Buy a Hometown Bicycles gift certificate for your favorite cyclist and receive a bonus accessory certificate from us! The accessory certificate is valued at 10% of your gift certificate purchase.

Hometown Ornaments — What a perfect way to support the shop while making your tree the coolest in town! We have custom Christmas tree ornaments in four designs, ranging from $10-$20.

Bring your bike in anytime between now and December 23rd for a tune-up and we will store it at the shop until spring! This means your bike will be all set to roll come those early days of cycling weather in March. No wait, no hassle… just freedom to get out there and ride.

We have room to store up to 220 bikes, so take advantage of this opportunity while space permits. For $25, we can even deliver your bicycle to your door this spring!

Gift Certificate Trade-Up!
We are so grateful to our Hometown community for supporting our shop during what has been a tough year. We’ve received an outpouring of encouragement and generosity to keep us Hometown Strong. People still ask what they can do to support the shop as we enter the off-season, and with the holidays coming up, we have the perfect answer to that question — gift certificates!
We are offering a Gift Certificate Trade-Up program this holiday season, through December 23rd.

Here’s how it works:
Buy a gift certificate…
Get an accessory certificate on us!

The accessory certificate is for 10% of the gift certificate you purchase. For example — you buy a $200 gift certificate and we give you a $20 certificate to use on accessories. The cyclist in your life is sure to love it!

Toys for Tots!
We are a Toys for Tots collection site! 

Your donations make a huge difference for children in Livingston County. This year, there is a greater need than ever before. 

Drop off a new, unwrapped toy, game, or book for kids up to age 16, through December 19th. 

If you aren’t up for shopping, you can make a cash donation at the shop and our Events Coordinator, Leslie B, will play the role of Santa’s elf and shop on your behalf!

THANK YOU for your generosity.

Congratulations to Team Hometown Bicycles sponsor, Dream Kitchens, on their fantastic new location! 

Visit their showroom at 5728 Whitmore Lake Rd, Brighton.
