The Harpeth Bicycle Club';s annual HARPETH RIVER RIDE will roll again with a group start at 7:30am CDT, Saturday June 12, 2010. Hosted this year by Nissan, the 15th Annual Harpeth River Ride is planned to be our best event ever.
The venue for this year';s Harpeth River Ride is the Nissan Americas campus located in the Cool Springs area of Franklin, TN. Ample on-site parking will be available.
As always, the Harpeth River Ride provides ride routes for every cyclist. When registering, select a ride distance based on your skill level and objective. All routes will offer SAG support powered by HBC member volunteers driving Nissan vehicles. Remember the Harpeth River Ride is not a race and always...Ride Safe, Ride Aware & Share The Road.
