Friday Night Lights shop ride at Hometown Bicycles

Happily, cold weather and early nights do NOT signal the end of cycling season! Here are a couple shop rides you won’t want to miss this week:

Friday Night Lights – Starts up again December 2nd, 7:00 p.m.
Meet at the shop by 6:45 for an intermediately-paced night jaunt through Island Lake. Be sure your lights are charged, and bring a back-up, if you have one!

*Woot! Woot!* to the Night Lights riders who survived the sudden and completely unexpected thunderstorm last week! Hometown Rides Coordinator Jean described it as:

“…high winds, leaves whipping in front of your glasses, rain pelting your jersey and the pain in your legs as you asked for more wattage to seek shelter… Man, that was a really, really fun ride!”

8th Annual PotoMBA Black Friday MTB Ride in Ypsi – Friday, November 25th, 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
This one’s not a shop ride, but a lot of our Team will be there. Join us! Details here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1197643866959330/

IMPORTANT NOTE:  Rifle Season runs November 15-30. Please consider exploring non-hunting parks during the day and those with hunting after dark. It’s only two weeks – let’s stay safe!
