Thornton and Grooms Sponsors Birmingham Bike Festival 2013

Aug. 15, 2013
Thornton & Grooms, a top local heating and cooling company, is pleased to be a Community sponsor of the 3rd Annual Birmingham Bike Festival on August 25, 2013.  The Festival takes place at Shain Park in downtown Birmingham from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Dave Knight, owner of Thornton & Grooms, says, “Birmingham is where Thornton & Grooms started, and we’ll always call it home.  We make it a point to stay involved in the Birmingham community.”

During the festival, everyone from amateurs who have never raced to serious racers has the opportunity to compete.  There are junior races for ages 10-14 and 15-18, as well as several different races for adults of all ages and experience levels. 

The Birmingham Bike Festival will also host the Michigan State Criterium Championship (MSCC) in 2013 and again in 2014.  The MSCC is the one-day race that crowns the state of Michigan’s champion racer in each of six men’s races for the year. 

In addition, there is a charity race called Miles 4 Alex dedicated to Alex Graham, a victim of pediatric cancer.  Proceeds of this race support Beaumont Hospital’s Children’s Miracle Network and D2N, which works to improve the lives of Nepalese children.  All entrants are encouraged to wear superhero costumes.

The Birmingham Bike Festival, beyond the races themselves, will feature live music, a kid’s area, food and beverages, and a marketplace that will include arts and crafts, clothing, and jewelry.
“Anyone who attends the festival should visit the Thornton & Grooms tent across from the main stage to learn more about our service to Birmingham and other communities, as well as take home some free goodies, including a Tigers tickets giveaway. It’s sure to be a great festival,” continues Knight.
