Why the Limaland Tour with Team Roadrunners?:  This is our annual tour hosted by us, Team Roadrunners Bicycle Club. We use this tour to meet up with other cyclists, promote our communities and provide a small fund raising effort for our club. The funds raised are used for club bicycle initiatives in our community such as organizing rides, promoting cycling participation and awareness, growing a safer riding community and being a resource and organization for all cyclists in our area.  We are all volunteers, cyclists and love riding our bikes.

For 2018, a charitable donation will be made to local bike charity mission: The Wheelhouse.  They refurbish and supply bicycles for youth and individuals in need of a bike and transportation.  They also offer bike repair, helmets and assistance for those in need.  Past tour proceed recipients have included the Veterans Food Pantry and Lafayette-Jackson Historic Society.

Fine Print:  Sorry, no rain date or refunds. We will reserve the right to alter the event if lightning or other safety concerns develop.  Youth riders under 18 y/o must be accompanied by an adult.  Family = head of house+spouse+under 18 y/o dependent(s) for “family” pricing on the short route only.  Helmets are required!  We do our best to provide a safe, fun and friendly ride.
