Hometown Bicycles Amy Gluck running the 2018 Martian Half Marathon on Hines Drive in Dearborn, Michigan
TEAM NEWS: LOWELL LOW-DOWN & RUNNING MARTIANS

Earlier this month, Team Hometown Bicycles braved icy temps and stiff winds to compete at northern Michigan’s Lowell 50 Classic Gravel Road Race. We’d like to high five Linc Wehrly, Jack Riddle, and Brian Forhan for hanging tough and riding strong!

Another Hometown shout out goes to our very own Amy Gluck, who ran bright and bold in the Team kit at a sub-40°, dismally soggy Martian Half Marathon on Hines Drive. One more step in Amy’s remarkable journey back to Ironman from near death. Way to go, Amy!

Tomorrow will find a flood of Hometownies racing the world’s largest gravel road bike race, Barry-Roubaix Killer Gravel Road Race… including your very own Ride Coordinator! (Kick some gravel butt, Laura!!) Whether you’re riding or not, come hang out at the Hometown tent and cheer on your Team – the weather will be all kinds of nice for riders and spectators alike. Good luck, Team!!

LUNCHING AND LEARNING WITH THE KEM KREST CREW

We were honored to accept a recent invitation to talk basic bike maintenance at a lively corporate lunch-and-learn, where fascination and fun were the order of the day. Thanks for that opportunity, Kem Krest crew!

We LOVE to share our bike know-how! If you’d like to book Hometown for your upcoming business event, please email Dawn at events@myhometownbicycles.com.

Birthday Party POSTPONED ’til April 22

Hometown Bicycles 8th Birthday Party Invitation - postponed until April 22
MICHIGAN’S BEEN AT IT AGAIN…
Well, Hometownies, it’s ice advisories and winter weather tomorrow, and that’s NOT compatible with a birthday bike ride and grill out!That’s ok – we can roll with it! We’ve simply moved Hometown’s 8th Birthday Bash to NEXT Sunday, April 22nd, when Michigan will have finally gotten the memo – high of 57° and partly sunny… now THAT’s what we’re talkin’ about!

BUT, if you do happen to stroll in tomorrow (4/15), you’ll get a celebratory 10% OFF YOUR ENTIRE PURCHASE(bikes/parts/accessories/special orders) PLUS a slice of birthday cake! Wonky weather or not, Hometown wanted to give you a gift anyway!

Awesomely enough, April 22nd is also Earth Day (yay for pedal-powered transportation!) AND the day after Barry Roubaix Killer Gravel Road Race, a Hometownie and Team favorite! That means our party will be the perfect opportunity to high five Ma Nature AND swap Barry stories with your fellow party peeps!

Hang in there, Hometownies!

That’s why we want you, a member of our Hometown family, to party hearty with us on April 15th between noon and 6pm for a day of family-friendly birthday games and prizespresents (for you!), and a 3pm birthday bike ride with food and cake to follow!
