Happy New Year from Your Hometown Crew!

Happy New Year 2018, Hometownies!
FROM YOUR HOMETOWN CREW:
We’re so glad to be on this side of 2018 with you – where the possibilities and adventures are laid out ahead in a trail of glory…

We wish you a year of pedal-powered accomplishments, growth, and happiness!

…………………………………..

Resolutions aside, you’ve probably noticed that your bike shop is growing up. Hometown has grown from a fly-by-the-seat-of-our-pants service hang-out to the best bike shop in Southeast Michigan (your words, not… oh, who are we kidding – we feel that way, too!)

The realities of running a sustainable and mind-blowing business are challenging… but not a bummer. We have a long-term vision of becoming your ultimate, one-stop bicycling resource, so the hard work is continually justified. YOU justify it.

I hear every day the most heartwarming show of support ever from customers who tell me how PROUD they are of what WE have created here at Hometown.

But do you understand the role that YOU have played? Take credit, Hometownies!! Everything from your inner tube purchase, to ride participation, to bike buy, to online review, to referral to friends and family – THAT is what makes us a success. If we’re doing it right, you’re PROUD to shout from the rooftops that Hometown is YOUR bike shop.

So come in – let us know how your Christmas went, and what YOUR vision is for Hometown. Your input has as much relevance as ours!

In the meantime, here are some opportunities for you to enjoy extracurricular, winter value from your bike shop – Team membership, bike clinics, fitness classes, and shop rides. Enjoy them with our thanks. We look forward to pedaling through 2018 together!


Members of Team Hometown Bicycles 2017 and '18
TEAM HOMETOWN – STILL ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS!
If you missed Team Night… major bummer, because it was an absolute blast. But you still have the chance to enjoy events, just as amazing, as a member of our Team!

We’re accepting Team applications all the way up through our big Potluck Party on March 1st. Our Team is already nearly 70 strong, with a wonderful mix of new and familiar faces, and riders of all types and skill levels. We’d love to welcome you aboard!

To learn more about becoming a member of Team Hometown Bicycles 2018, contact our Ride Coordinator, Laura, at ride@myhometownbicycles.com.

Brighton High School student bicycle art at Hometown Bicycles

Before Christmas, two of our incredible customers bought two of the uber-talented, Brighton High School students’ bicycle art pieces. SO. AWESOME.
