Easter Weekend & Shop Rides Begin TODAY

Happy Easter from everybunny at Hometown Bicycles
HAPPY PRE-EASTER, HOMETOWNIES!  We hope this holiday finds you bright-eyed, bushy-tailed and rarin’ to ride. Our shop rides launch TODAY, which you’ll read more about below. But, please note that:
WE WILL BE CLOSED ON EASTER SUNDAY
(P.S. That means no Shop Ride this Sunday.)
Everyone should enjoy family time on Easter, and that includes our rockstar staff!

SHOP RIDES BEGIN TODAY!!!

Hometown Bicycles 2015 Shop RidesIf any of you were waffling over whether cycling season has truly begun, here’s the irrefutable proof – Hometown Bicycles Shop Rides begin TODAY with our much-loved Beginner Road Bike Ride, open to all, starting at Island Lake, and led by Shaun.

So, strap on your cycling gear, and let’s get our ride on at the:

HOMETOWN’S BEGINNER ROAD RIDE
This is a 12-15 mile, NO DROP,
get-to-know-your-bicycle-again kind of road ride.
ALL LEVELS & ALL BICYCLES WELCOME

REMEMBER:  NO SHOP RIDE ON EASTER SUNDAY!

When we Hometownies sprint, it’s usually with our feet on the pedals, but this is one upcoming race that has you running, walking, even crawling over terra not-so-firma. Mud, gravel, obstacles, hill climbs… too cool not to mention here!
