Bike Maintenance & Safety Clinic & Group Ride with Biker’s Choice

Do you need to know how to change a tire? Or need more practice? Or help getting a chain back on?Biker's Choice

Please join us at Biker’s Choice on April 23rd as they host a bike maintenance clinic for HEAT and organize a group ride from their shop afterward. It should be great weather for a ride! All paces are encouraged and welcome – no riders will be left behind!

We will start at 8:15am. David will talk about bike maintenance and safely sharing the road and show everyone how to change a tire. Then we will get ready to ride about 9am. He has layed out a 15 mile course where it will be easy to talk to people about climbing, gear shifting and traffic.

Come out and support our sponsor and have a good time with our fellow members.


If you’re looking for a beginner triathlon (pool swim) or just a kick-off to the season, the ADPi-athlon at MTSU is a great area race that benefits the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Nashville and MTSU scholarships.  See the flyer for more details – ADPi-Athlon Flyer 2016.

It would be wonderful to have a big HEAT turnout for this race again!
