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!!

Hometown Bicycles Where to Ride in Michigan Potluck Party and Clinic
THANKS FOR MAKING THIS YEAR’S POTLUCK CLINIC AMAZING!
Last Thursday, appetites and attendance were at an all-time, record-breaking high at our annual, Where to Ride in Michigan clinic and potluck party. Hometownies, you truly outdid yourselves! Here’s a photographic look at some of our favorite highlights…

Hometown Bicycles Where to Ride in Michigan Clinic and Potluck Party - fruit, brownies, cookies, and cupcakes!
The FOOD!!  Our tables were overflowing with mouth-watering goodness – everything from slow-cooker ribs to homemade cupcakes. There wasn’t a square centimeter of empty stomach in the place by the time the event was over! Thank you, Hometown chefs!

Hometown Bicycles Where to Ride in Michigan Potluck Party and Clinic speakers - Matt Fitzhorn, Kelly Hibbert of Bike Vacation Tours, Laura Faunce, and Shaun Bhajan
The Clinic:  (from left) The evening kicked off with our awesome, new, Service Manager, Matt Fitzhorn, introducing himself to his awesome, new, Hometown family. We also heard from Kelly Hibbert of Bike Tour Vacations about some seriously fun, bike-based travel adventures. Ride Coordinator Laura did such a great job describing shop rides, and the wonderfulness of our Team, that several Hometownies joined on the spot! And Shaun tied it all together with insights on cycling groups, organizations, rides, and maps.

Thanks, too, to Tom Hermann for the bonus Hartland Trail intel and MMBA chapters lowdown, and the Team members who shared a little of their own Hometown love!

Thanks for coming out, you two!

We also had the bittersweet pleasure of giving a Hometown send-off to one very special Hometownie, Mel Robinson. Mel’s been a constant – loyal to a ‘T’, involved, and entirely devoted to cycling. We’re all going to miss you, Mel – bunny hop some gators for us down there in Florida!

The Socializing:  It’s our favorite part of every event – hanging out, making friends, and dreaming up future cycling adventures. The Potluck Clinic offered it up in spades. All in all, it was an evening to remember – thanks again for the memories, Hometownies!

EVEN NPR GETS IT…

Guy on bikeIn this past Monday’s NPR Morning Edition segment, Allison Aubrey found that there is “Evidence Indicat[ing] Cyclists May Age Better Than Those Who Don’t Bike”. We know it, too, Allison! As NPR notes:

There’s evidence that if you regularly bike — even just for fun — you may age better than those who don’t. A study shows that cyclists bodies may fend off some of the typical age-related decline.

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

Hometown Bicycles Service Tech, Matthew Persha

WHAT THE “PERSHA” IS & WHY YOU SHOULD ASK FOR IT!

Shaun and I believe strongly that it’s important for Hometown Crew to understand more about business than just work-go-home-repeat. Upping our Crew’s business I.Q. adds value to our customers’ experience, supports the long-term goals of the shop, and gives our guys and gals real-world insights that benefit THEM, too – an especially great thing for our school-age crew members!

For this week and next, Service Tech and high school cyclist Matt Persha has cooked up a promotion for all of you Hometownies, and we’re giving him the opportunity to spearhead his own creation! You’ll spot his marketing efforts on social media and elsewhere, but here’s the gist of what we’ve dubbed the “PERSHA Promotion”:
………………………………..

Mention “PERSHA”
when you bring your bike in for a Hometown Bicycles Tune-Up
between 11/27/17 – 12/10/17,
and receive an emailed coupon after you pick up your tuned bike for
10% OFF ANY ONE ITEM
– bicycle, part, or accessory, including special orders –
to use at your next purchase.*
