Best Team Night Ever + Christmas Intell

Team Hometown Bicycles members enjoying tacos and treats at Team Night

BEST. TEAM. EVER!  Over 100 Hometownies and Hometownies-in-the-making packed – and I mean PACKED – the bike shop floor for our 2018 Team Night informational meeting last Sunday. Cyclists “of all makes and models” came to renew their membership, or to learn more about a Team that’s made tsunami-sized waves in the cycling community for being devoted to the sport, to each other, and to Hometown… not to mention for being phenomenal, big-hearted human beings that give cyclists an AWESOME name!

We cheered over Team awards, got goosebumps from Team testimonials, loaded up on tacos and treats, ordered Team kits, and welcomed scores of Hometownies to the 2018 Team. On Team Night alone, our Team blew past its 2017 membership numbers, and the sign-ups are still pouring in. WOW!

Team Hometown Bicycles Team Night awards and food

Definitely gotta give a shout out to our Ride Coordinator, Laura Faunce, who took ownership of this event – and the Team – with outstanding results! Heartfelt thanks to a Team that gives us DAILY reason to be grateful and proud. Hats off to the foodies who added deliciousness to the program. Warm thanks to our Crew, who surprised Shaun and I with a gratitude speech (we feel so loved!) And always, always a special thank you to our spectacular Sponsors, who help support the Team year after year:

If you’re interested in ordering a Hometown kit (jerseys, shorts, etc.), there’s still time! Order goes out Monday, December 11th. Drop by the shop to figure out sizing. You don’t have to be on the Team to wear the kit! Plus, we’re hosting a massive, Kit Pick-Up Party early next year when the orders arrive (stay tuned for details!)

You can learn more about our Team, or sign up for the 2018 Team by filling out the following Team application and dropping it off at the shop:

2018 is gonna be a great year, Team Hometownies. Can’t wait to ride it out with you!

Hometown Bicycles gives a lecture on bicycle engineering at Pinckney's Navigator Upper Elementary School

SHAUN TALKS TECH WITH PINCKNEY STUDENTS

Yesterday, Shaun brought along one of the finest examples of bicycle engineering we have at the shop, Pro Tour racer Alexander Kristoff‘s bike (on loan from Dean Gericke – thanks, Dean!), to Navigator Upper Elementary to demonstrate the science and engineering of bicycles. For the second year in a row, he was blown away by the quality of questions asked by the students and, this time, the mad art skillz! We love introducing young minds to the fascinating world of bike tech-ery; thanks for inviting us back, Pinckney Schools!
