Show Your Valentine Some Bike Love
FLOWERS, CHOCOLATES… AND A DEFCON
Get your creative caps on, and really think about how you can show your Valentine how much they mean to you. If a bike is just the thing to wow your sweetheart, the Jamis Defcon
is a stunner in passionate fire red.
I ♥ YOU FROM YOUR HEAD TO YOUR SOCKED FEET
A foot massage would make a wonderful Valentine’s treat, but not for you, if you have to touch questionable old socks. Deck those beloved feet in new “I ♥…” or “hot lips” cycling socks from Sock Guy.
THINK PINK FOR HER GREENS
Gentleman, your bicycle-lovin’ Valentine will adore this exquisitely crafted, Made-in-Michigan, LPbyLP
purse set not only for stylishly toting cash, but also for declaring her OTHER passion (besides you, of course!) to the world.
WHO CAN RESIST A COLORFUL BOUQET?
Local artist Peggy Brewer
combined the best of two worlds – flowers and bicycles – with her vibrant notecards. Save yourself a trip to the drug store – we’ve got your perfect Valentine’s card right here at the shop!
SET THE MOOD WITH CANDLELIGHT
Gearing up for a romantic, candlelit dinner? Award-winning Detroit artist, Deborah Marlowe Kashdan, has found a clever new use for recycled cassettes – as candleholders! Read more about this new Hometown artist below.
KEEPIN’ IT CLEAN
“Ride Hard – Smell Good”: That’s the tagline of our new, all-natural line of scented soaps, made preservative-free, dye-free, and fixative-free. The Hometown Bicycles Love Bar will make a sweet-smelling gift for that super-special somebody.
SPEAKING OF FUELING YOUR PASSION…
With cycling season just half a month away, our shelves are filling with your favorite nutrition brands in every imaginable powder, fizz, chew, and gel, in every imaginable flavor, to keep yourself rockin’ out the miles on your bicycle.
We’re even building up a new display to house this treasure trove of energy. Stop by and check it out!
MEET THE ARTIST: DEBORAH MARLOWE KASHDAN
Meet Deborah – a nationally and internationally award-winning artist whose artistic background and merits span mediums and the globe! Deborah has “a passion for cycling, recycling, and designing and creating functional art.” (Come read her Artist’s Statement at the shop to learn more about this terrific artist and fantastic human being.)
Deborah’s “Bike Lights” cassette candleholders make a wonderfully whimsical addition to our shop, and we’re head-over-heels with her cycling print titled, “Choose Your Path, Chart Your Course. Keep Your Feet to the Pedals and Your Eyes on the Road Ahead“. How. Cool.
Valentine’s Day shoppers – candles, gears… you’ve got to check these out!
For the fifth year in a row, we’ve been named Best Retailer of 2015 by Quality Bicycle Products.
We’re psyched, so we wanted to toot our horn to the awesome people who helped us get there.
We love you, Hometownies! Thanks for keeping us at the top the charts year after year!
