Tuesday, Mar. 19 – 6:00 to 8:00 P.M. – The Track at Nashville Fairgrounds SpeedwayDuring the cool weather months, the Harpeth Bike Club offers a ride each Tuesday evening at the Fairgrounds Speedway, weather permitting.  And this week looks good for our next-to-last Track ride of the season.  The Track is open to HBC members and one-time visitors.  In contrast to our other Club rides, we are compelled to limit the Track to HBC members because the Club is charged a handsome fee each time we use the Speedway.  In the interests of safety, please pass through the big gate and park in the rear instead of at the front entrance.  The ride will be cancelled if conditions are wet or too cold for riding.

As always, this is the HBC’s most unique event, drawing large crowds of riders who can participate in a fast paceline or take it calmly in the outer lanes.  All riders at the Track must strictly observe the rules for riding there, which are specifically designed to enhance the safety and enjoyment of all participants.  Remember – Lane 1 is for those riding at 22 mph or faster, and Lane 2 is for those riding at 17 mph or faster.  Slower riders should be in the outer lanes.  In Lanes 1 and 2, ride on the line and pass only on the right.  Please review and follow these rules carefully:
