Annual Heart of Heath event shifts to Community Bike Ride for 2021

Celebrating Hometown Spring Fun & Fitness Safely

HEATH, TX – March 9, 2021 – The City of Heath invites the community to celebrate hometown spring fun and fitness safely at the first-ever Heart of Heath Bike Tour on Easter Saturday, April 3, beginning in Towne Center Park at 8:30 a.m.

There will be a 5-Mile Ride the Town route and a 1k Ride the Park route designed for younger riders that includes a bike decorating contest. The 1k route will follow the trail perimeter path around Towne Center Park.

Participants receive an event t-shirt and water bottle while supplies last. Staging for both rides and judging for the bike decorating contest begins along Towne Center Drive at 8 a.m.

While there is hope of returning to “normal” in the near future with the vaccine, spreading COVID-19 is still a current concern when it comes to large gatherings. For that reason, the City shifted gears from the traditional Heart of Heath 5K and Family Runs with shoulder-to-shoulder crowding at the starting lines to the community bike ride.  The City asks that participants please wear a mask during the staging portion of the event, and helmets are required for all riders.

For more information and registration, go to Prices increase after March 26, and there will not be onsite registration at the event on April 3. You will also find a map for the 5-Mile route, which will experience brief traffic delays on April 3 between 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Please plan accordingly, or come out and cheer for the riders!
