And in Team News…

The 13th Annual Maybury State Park Time Trial took place on Sunday, August 25th. Brought to you by the MCMBA, this year’s race was Maybury as you’ve never experienced it before — the course included some awesome race day-only singletrack. The mix of fast open sprints and tight, technical singletrack rewarded both cardio AND bike handling skills.

Maybury Time Trial

Team Hometown was represented by Co-Captains Mike Dyer and Joe Ostervik, Jacob Henriksen (pictured above left), Dan Tribble (pictured above right), Roger Pelkey and Andrew Showerman (and his two sons). Great job, everyone!

And because he’s just this amazing (and maybe a little bit c-r-a-z-y), Joe Ostervik did another race earlier that day! Two races in one day?! What?!

From Joe himself: “So I was a little crazy!! Did 2 races in the same day!! I was at the Debaets-Devos Race and got a flat in the 3rd lap. Swapped out the tire and got back in the race as they came by, but couldn’t get back up to speed and ended up last. Then I was able to make it to Maybury and missed the cutoff for the sport class. They let me do the beginner race, but technically I am a beginner in the race world because I only do one, maybe two, MTB races a year. Rode angry and got 1st in my age group which is OLD!!”

Riding for Cancer Awareness…

EFF Cancer

The 3rd Annual EFF Cancer ride took place on Saturday, August 17th to honor those who are battling or have battled cancer. 

Approximately 70 cyclists showed their support, with many dedicating the ride to someone.

Hometownies Colin and Cindy Chisholm organize the event each year. 

“I can tell you that the vibe was phenomenal,” says Colin. “Everyone was touched. So many people took me and Cindy aside to thank us and tell us their story, and they shared their story with others too.”

And the Taste of Brighton bicycle goes to…

Hometown Bicycles at the 2018 A Taste of Brighton in Downtown Brighton, Michigan
MEMORY-MAKING AT “A TASTE OF BRIGHTON” & JULY JUBILEE
Last weekend was a 3-day fun-a-thon, kicking off with our first-and-definitely-not-last participation in A Taste of Brighton street fest (photo above), and ending Sunday with Hometown’s annual July Jubilee & Concert (photos below). In fact, many of you readers are new friends we made over the weekend… welcome, and thank you for the chance to get to know you!

We’ve got photographic proof of the fun that was had – check out the highlights below! (And if you’re itching to know who won our Taste of Brighton bike drawing, scroll down a little further… )

Hometown Bicycles July Jubilee 2018
Our July Jubilee kicked off with Cardio Drumming-Zumba Fusion taught by Martha Soraruf (middle) andLeslie Barrett (left; who, incidentally, also coordinated the entire event – awesome job, Leslie!!). Jim and Sherryl of Yoga Nature took our event to new heights with jaw-dropping AcroYoga antics (right)!

Hometown Bicycles July Jubilee 2018
Inside, kids made an eager beeline for Alison Peasley’s face painting table (left). Dr. Kyle (middle) and Kassy (right) of Lifetime Family Chiropractic were a crowd favorite with their muscle-melting chair massages.

Hometown Bicycles July Jubilee 2018
Outside, CJ and Sarah of Brighton ATA Martial Arts wowed spectators with weapons, sparring, and board-breaking demos (left). Tour de Livingston/Howell Rotary made a welcome presence as they promoted this year’s ride – October 7th! – and the chance to win a Hometown-donated Jamis Renegade gravel bike (middle)! Visitors loved the lawn games provided courtesy Hamburg Fitness Center & Camp (right)!

Hometown Bicycles July Jubilee 2018
We were joined by a remarkable family – Thaddeus McGaffey (left), who runs A Taste of Brighton, found enough energy reserves on the heels of HIS big event, to come out and support ours! His entrepreneurial mermaid daughter, Phaedre, posed for pictures with adoring young visitors (right). Meanwhile, wife, Debra of One Spirit Dance & Fitness, showcased the exquisite, core-of-steel art form of belly dancing (middle)!

Hometown Bicycles July Jubilee 2018 - group ride with police escort
Despite the soaring heat index, families joined in on July Jubilee road and mountain bike rides. Helmets off to Officers Steve and Brittany of Green Oak Charter Township Police Department, who provided much-appreciated Grand River crossing assistance! Hungry riders returned to hot dogs, cotton candy, and hydration (water courtesy our rockstar Beauchamp Water Treatment peeps!) 

Hometown Bicycles July Jubilee Red, White and BLUES Concert with Cyclo Dan Tribble
The evening wrapped up soulfully with the melodic blues-rock of Hometown Service Tech Dan Tribble and his PBR Band. This concert raised $538 for Hometownie Dan Rosenhack, undergoing costly medical treatments for terminal brain cancer, and his wonderfully supportive family.

Special thanks to Thaddeus McGaffey for many of the photos you see above!

And thank you to everyone who was a part of our outstanding weekend – all of the amazing businesses, bands, organizations, volunteers, participants, and YOU! You’re the reason we do what we do… and you’re the reason it’s FUN!
