Hometown Turns 5 Today!

TODAY, APRIL 15TH, HOMETOWN BICYCLES TURNS 5!  That’s 5 YEARS of getting you to your happy place on a bicycle… what a dream come true!!
Something this momentous requires celebrating, but we’re saving the big shin-dig for the impending grand opening of our new store. ‘Til then, take a stroll with us down memory lane to honor the business that’s making waves, making friends, and making history thanks to you wonderful, wonderful Hometownies…

Hometown Bicycles history

2010: A BUSINESS CONCEPT IS BORN  It all started with a relationship (ours – Shaun & Dawn), a need (for outstanding, speedy, anti-snob bicycle service), a vision (to blow people’s minds), and a tiny rental space in Brighton. (Above: Service shop before and after)

2010: HOMETOWN BICYCLES OPENS FOR SERVICE  Mid-renovation, Shaun popped the question, and the soon-to-be Mr. & Mrs. Shaun Bhajan officially opened the doors to Hometown Bicycles’ service shop. (Above: Dawn says “yes” and signage makes the business official)

2011: WE INTRODUCE RETAIL  Customer demand made expansion into retail a natural next step, and after falling in love with Jamis Bicycles, we went for it… Hometown Bicycles tripled in size to bring you cool bikes and accessories. (Above: Retail shop before and after)

2012: SHOP RIDES & CLINICS TAKE OFF  We were determined to be a cycling resource for our customers and community, so we launched rides and clinics open to all. (Above: Early shop ride and making ourselves visible from Grand River)

2013: WE CREATE THE MOUNTAIN BIKE MARATHON  We built a bike course from scratch and created the wildly successful Hometown Bicycles Mountain Bike Marathon event – our first foray into race creation, and certainly not our last! (Above: Happy race volunteers)

2014: WE BRANCH INTO A SECOND LOCATION  To spread the love, we opened a Hometown Bicycles satellite service center in Whitmore Lake. Although we recently moved this store’s operations back to Brighton in preparation for our big move, it remains a core piece of our shop heritage.(Above: Hometown Bicycles Whitmore Lake)

2015: BIG OL’ CHANGES ARE UNDERWAY  This year, we’re taking on our biggest challenges to date – opening a 10,000 sq. ft. Bicycle Adventure Center and becoming parents. But then, we never did like to live small! (Above: Renovations are well underway, and so is our mini-Hometownie… both arrive this spring)

The Future…  With you as customers, we can reach the stars. We’re privileged to have you as part of our continuing adventures, and will keep on keeping you in the loop as the awesomeness unfolds. (Above: The future home of Hometown Bicycles)

Thank you for making these past 5 years MAGICAL,

~ Shaun & Dawn
