Who loves Spring? WE DO!

There’s no better way to enjoy Spring than a Hometown Shop Ride on a beautiful sunny day in Brighton.

We offer beginner, intermediate and advanced rides… all skill levels are welcome!

Don’t have a bike? We rent them! Inquire at the shop.

Make sure to print or pick up your Shop Ride schedule!

Monday kicked off our Beginner Road Ride and Tuesday was the inaugural 2019 Ladies Beginner Mountain Bike Ride. Look at those happy faces and sweet jerseys!

Hometown Bicycles

We sometimes get asked about the term NO DROP that you see on the Ride descriptions. People wonder if this means you have to register and can’t drop in… no… you can always drop in!

NO DROP simply means that no one is left behind. Each ride had a Lead and a Sweep; the Sweep will make sure that the group stays together and no one gets “dropped”!

Hometown Bicycles

MiSCA More Girls on Bikes Game Night & Potluck at Hometown!

MiSCA

MiSCA works to establish and maintain safe, quality scholastic cycling programs. They also promote the value of cycling to our youth and community as a mode of transportation and as a lifelong sport.

(Well, the ones that weren’t on Spring Break anyway…)

Team Hometown Bicycles

This past weekend, Team Hometown Bicycles gathered for a Team Kit Pickup Party… new Team Kits meant an awesome opportunity to get the Team together for food, chat, announcements, and perhaps the most important thing of all — a Team photo! 

After about 20 tries, we finally got a Team photo where everyone is looking at the camera with EYES OPEN! What can we say? We keep trying till we get it right.

And that describes what Team Hometown Bicycles is all about… determination, grit, support and teamwork! Whether it’s leading shop rides for all levels, cheering one another on at races, volunteering time or being generally awesome, our Team is something worth gushing over!

Team Hometown Bicycles

Team member Tom Hermann (above) was honored as one of the 2018 Volunteer of the Year recipients by MCMBA for his hard work and dedication related to his trail work at Settlers Park in Hartland. We are so proud of you, Tom! Thank you for all you do for Team Hometown Bicycles and the Community.

Be sure to be on the lookout for our fabulous Team at various events and races this year. They’ll be the ones with big smiles in the super sharp jerseys!

Gooooo, Team Hometown Bicycles!


A Tandem Endeavor with THE Tandem Expert:
Get to Know Hometown’s Newest Ally, Joel Hakken of Midwest Bike & Tandem

Hometown Bicycles Shaun Bhajan forging an alliance with Joel Hakken of Midwest Bike and Tandem

Joel & Shaun representing the new partnership between Hometown and Midwest Bike & Tandem 

It takes two to tandem, and we’ve allied with the ideal partner to “captain” Hometown into the tandem bikes and service market. You’ve already read the exciting news about Midwest Bike & Tandem moving into our shop this Spring. Now, as we’re gearing up to move ’em in, learn more about the tandem mastermind from the great man himself:

“Ever since I was a small lad, the bicycle was my freedom, a way to get away from my parents. A way to go to school, a way to ride to town to watch a movie. Freedom.

In later years, I rode for the fun and exercise and to reduce stress. When my ex-wife started doing triathlons, she would complain when we would do a training ride together that I would go too fast, and if I would gear down and ride at her pace, she said you aren’t working very hard. So we bought a Santana tandem and rode together for the next few years.

After getting the tandem in a divorce, I met Wendy. One day I asked if she would like to go for a ride on a tandem bicycle. We went for a short ride and, two years later, we were married. As a couple getting married at 50 years old, with each of us owning homes and having all sorts of dishes, glassware and silverware, Wendy and I decided to buy a new tandem as our wedding gift to each other. 

I went looking for a new tandem and found that no one stocked tandems in the Midwest.

We wound up purchasing a new Co-Motion Tandem from a dealer in Kansas City, but picked it up at the factory in Eugene, Oregon. There we met the owner and became good friends. Over the next year, I looked for a bike shop that would take on the Co-Motion line.

Then one day, the owner called and said he had found his dealer in the Midwest: Look in the mirror, you will recognize him. 

I told him I was retired and not looking to start another business, but he talked me into it. Midwest Bike & Tandem, located in Ann Arbor, was born. Since that time, we have become one of the top dealers for Co-Motion, and have also become dealers of KHS, Santana and DaVinci. I have become a design consultant for both Co-Motion and DaVinci bicycles. 

When my landlord sold the building and the new landlord refused to offer a new lease, I was forced to find a new home for Midwest Tandems as I prepared for retirement. A friend and fellow tandem rider suggested I talk to Shaun and Dawn Bhajan at Hometown Bicycles in Brighton.

Hometown Bicycles' Shaun Bhajan forging and alliance with Joel Hakken of Midwest Bike and Tandem

After a couple meetings, I could see that Hometown would be a great fit. Friendly, informative, service-oriented, and not pushy. So we worked out an agreement and are looking forward to working with the great staff of Hometown Bicycles!”

Joel and his fleet of tandem bicycles will soon be making their way to Hometown. Stop by to take a look, and venture out on a test drive! Don’t have a partner to ride with? We’re sure Shaun will be happy to oblige!
