  • Monday, August 17, 2020

  • TBD


-Other than your busy life, what is holding you back from riding your bike every day?  

-If you could change one thing about your bike, what would it be?

Join us August 17. We will be enlightened by Mr. Eddie Sloan, owner of Bike Domesestique.

If you are suffering from numb hands or toes, knee pain, lower back pain, shoulder discomfort or any number of other aches and pains after riding your bike, it is likely due to improper bike fit. Getting a professional bike fit is one of the most commonly skipped steps when buying a new bike, but it is one of the most important. If you want to ride happily and pain-free for many years and miles to come, do yourself a favor and give yourself the gift of a proper bicycle fit.

A proper fit can:

  • Improve overall rider comfort
  • Help prevent cycling-induced repetitive stress injuries
  • Reduce or eliminate back, knee, neck and wrist pain
  • Reduce or eliminate “hot foot”
  • Reduce or eliminate saddle discomfort and genital numbness
  • Reduce or eliminate numbness in the hands and fingers
  • Reduce rider fatigue

A good fit can also improve riding performance, because it allows the rider to use multiple muscle groups in the most effective and efficient manner.

This topic is pertinent for all riders and we welcome ALL cyclist and their guests. We'll gather for social time and a brief meeting at 6:30 with presentation and dinner around 7:00 pm.

The Wheelmen are a welcoming group of cyclist who promote safe and fun riding in East Tennessee. To keep our programming affordable to all members and non-members alike, we have dinner dutch treat. Please rsvp if possible on Facebook so we can anticipate attendance.
