At Hometown Bicycles, we’re proud to support more than just cycling. We encourage you to live adventurously – every day starts and ends with potential!

That’s why we are SO EXCITED that Michigan Adventure Club selected our store to host their “Intro to Adventure Racing” clinic THIS Saturday, March 5th from 10-11am. You already love to ride – now expand those horizons!

Adventure races typically involve team pedaling, paddling, and orienteering – it’s the best of bikes, boats, and brains in scavenger hunt format. This clinic teaches you everything you need to know to… well… adventure successfully! Join us!

SPEAKING OF CLINICS… WHOA, NELLY!!!

2016 "Where to Ride in MI and With Whom" clinic at Hometown Bicycles - What a turnout!!!
THANKS FOR MAKING WEDNESDAY NIGHT THE BIGGEST & BEST CLINIC IN THE HISTORY OF HOMETOWN!
Covering everything from favorite bike paths, to shop rides, to joining Team Hometown Bicycles, the final clinic in our 2016 Winter Clinic Series blew the lid off our “OMG!” meter. It was literally standing room only with ideas and opportunities a-flyin’!

Missed out? Major bummer! But know that you can drop by any time for information and handouts, or you can contact Jennifer at events@myhometownbicycles.com for further details.

GIRL SCOUT LUNCH-&-LEARN AT HOMETOWN 

Girl Scouts Daisy Troop at Hometown Bicycles
Shaun was kept hopping Thursday evening by the energetic and enthusiastic interest of Daisy Girl Scout Troop 40627 in bicycle care and safety. This kindergarten-aged crowd asked some really first rate questions, and absolutely brought the store to life with their budding love for cycling.

Want us to host a mini-clinic for YOUR Scout Troop? We LOVE sharing our bike know-how! Contact Jennifer to schedule your next Troop meeting at Hometown:events@myhometownbicycles.com.

LAST CHANCE TO OWN A PIECE OF HISTORY!

Brighton High School student bicycle art display at Hometown Bicycles

Today, Friday afternoon, marks the close of the incredible Brighton High School bicycle art exhibit in our Community Room – the very first student art exhibit of our Hometown Bicycles Student Art Program.

Another piece sold yesterday (more on this in an upcoming email!) Today is your last chance to support the students who pioneered this program by buying their art. Remember, 100% of every sale goes directly to the student!

Thanks again, Maureen Ray, for having your BHS students help launch a piece of Hometown history. And thanks to the wonderful customers who already purchased art and made a student feel inspired!

Next up… Bartlett Elementary School in South Lyon, COMING SOON!

Donations are encouraged, and adoptions welcomed. But, if nothing else, stop by and give these tough-luck survivors some well-earned belly rubs – it’ll make you both feel great! Bring the kids!!

Hometown Bicycles Winter Clinic Series: Bicycle Safety and Equipment

AND SO IT BEGINS… AGAIN!

Shaun and I met over bike clinics, so Hometown’s yearly winter clinic series has always been near and dear to our hearts. But that’s the only thing nostalgic about this year’s series; we’ve got a new, dream room in a new, dream shop to take it to an “11”!

Our clinics are free, and we appreciate your pre-registration for set-up purposes. This week – it was all about the safety. Next week brings the MASSIVELY popular, two-part Bike Care & Maintenance clinics. You’ll get the 411 on keeping your trusty steed looking and working its absolute best!

Airing up bicycle tireBIKE CARE & MAINTENANCE PART 1 – REGISTER NOW!
Tuesday, January 12 from 12:15-1pm  -OR-  Wednesday, January 13 from 6-7pm
In this first of a 2-part clinic, we’ll cover tips and tricks to prep your bike BEFORE you hit the roads and trails.

HOMETOWN BICYCLES’ STUDENT ART PROGRAM!

Hometown Bicycles Student Art Program in our community room

(Student art from Brighton High School on display in our Community Room!)
WE’RE SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS!!!

We’re putting out a challenge to the schools in our community – to have their art students (drawing, painting, metalwork, pottery, you-name-it-we’ll-take-it) create bicycle artwork to display in our shop. Many of these pieces will be for sale, AND (this is important)…

100% OF STUDENT ART SALES GOES DIRECTLY
TO THE STUDENT WHO CREATED IT!

This is a chance for budding artists to get some real-world business experience and public exposure for their art.

A special kudos goes out to Maureen Ray and her Brighton High School art studentsfor being the first to accept the challenge! Come and check out their imaginative artwork at our shop. Maybe you’ll see something that you’ll want to take home!

Want to see YOUR kids’ artwork at Hometown? Connect with your school art teacher, and have them contact Dawn at office@myhometownbicycles.com or (810) 225-2441. Any school, any age level; it’s never too early to support a love for art and bicycles!
