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 2017, a charitable donation will be made to new 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 17 and under must be accompanied by an adult.  Family = head of house+spouse+17 year old 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.
