JENNIFER FINDS THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH
Customer Highlight: Why She Loves Cycling

Jennifer McCauley, Hometown Bicycles Events Coordinator and Leader of the Green Gals

Jennifer is one of those amazing customers who was with us even before Hometown was a twinkle in our eyes. Now we’re proud to call her our Events Coordinator and co-instigator with her daughter of the much-loved Hometown Bicycles Green Gals (an all-women cycling group).

Here’s what Jennifer has to say about why she loves cycling:

It needs to be noted that I didn’t start “biking” until I was 51.  Sure I rode a bike all through my childhood and with toddlers on the back of my bike and then with the whole family.  However I started “biking” to do my first triathlon.  It opened a whole new fun world. It made me feel like a kid again. I pushed all my other X-mas gifts aside when my husband wheeled in a new road bike and l squealed like a kid.

Now it gives me more time with my children and other young people; it gives me new muscles; it makes me invigorated; it’s a great cross training for running and swimming; it provides a whole host of potential gifts for me; it strengthens my aging knees; it keeps me off medication and gives me vitamin D and fresh air; it improves my balance; and it gives me bragging rights (I’ve now added mountain biking). It keeps me young. Why did I wait so long?????!!!!!

Hours for Everyone

Hometown Bicycles is open 7am to 7pm, 7 days a week… what do you think?

We know for a fact that there are a lot of cyclists who tote their bikes to work, so they can drop it off for repair on their lunch break, then get stuck in a line at the shop and blow their entire hour, only to find out their bike won’t be ready for another two weeks. We’ve been there… it happens.

And that’s why we picked the hours we did.

Our goal is for you to drop it off before work and, in most cases, pick it up right after and ride. The cycling season’s too short and too darn fun to waste!

So our question for you is…
