ONE BAD EGG

We’ve been in business for over 6 years now, and in the industry far longer than that… and we’ve come across cyclists of all kinds. But a couple days ago, we caught wind of a rider who stinks up the sport with his dangerous conduct. Here’s the scoop:

Anyone riding Island Lake on Saturday, June 25th between 12-2, we are looking for your help.

Around 1pm, there was an incident between a tandem and a mountain biker. The mountain biker rode next to the tandem couple and pushed them off the road, resulting in extensive road rash and a possible broken collar bone in the female rider. This act is despicable, and it’s important to identify this rider. We know that he was wearing a Michigan jersey and a Camelback. If you have any info, please contact the shop, and we will get in touch with the correct officials.

Thanks to Team Hometown’s Marvin Ballast for stopping to assist the fallen tandem riders, and for making us aware of this appalling event, so that we can put the word out.

Hello, Cycling Season… We Love You!

Shaun Bhajan, bike love

IT’S MARCH 1ST, HOMETOWNIES – YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS…

CYCLING SEASON!!!
Time to dust off the ol’ saddle, lay out the cycling shorts, and get your cycling buddies back on speed dial. Today marks the beginning of a beautiful 2016 relationship with your bicycle!

If your trusty steed is more like your “rusty” steed, bring it by for some Hometown love. We’ll get your bike from garage-grade to roads-and-trails-ready in a flash, so that you won’t have to miss a single minute of pedal euphoria.

For those hearty souls who’ve been rocking the winter cycling scene, rock on! You epitomize our core belief – that the real Michigan “cycling season” will always be year round!

(A sneak peek at some of the sights you’ll be seeing in your new Hometown Bicycles!)

SO MUCH. SOOOOOO MUCH…

Our crew has been putting in some crazy hours to lay out displays, install service racks, build bikes, prep products, set up computers, clean, clean, and clean some more…

… and we’re not quite ready to cut the ribbon yet. Turns out, you really CAN’T rush incredible.

Here’s a bit of Hometown trivia for you… We (Shaun & Dawn) got married on 10/10/10 – that’s 5 years of magic, just like our shop! And we’ll admit that we were REALLY hoping to celebrate our anniversary with a Bicycle Adventure Center Grand Opening. But, we are SO CLOSE. This is just a chance to savor the excitement a little bit longer!

If you want to hear more Hometown news, come hang out with us this weekend at our favorite cycling event – Tour de Livingston, follow along on Facebook and, as always, keep your eye out for our email updates.

Stay alert! When this thing explodes, it’s going to happen FAST…
