Orlando Runners and Riders is USA Cycling sports activity club for beginner and intermediate cyclists, runners and swimmers. In normal times we support several regular events, including a weekly evening ride from Kyle’s Bike Shop, various weekend events, and several cycling time trials throughout the year. This should resume soon.
The club donates and otherwise supports local charities. We also are the 501.c.3 managing the Central Florida Velodrome Project.
Membership dues are $25. Funds are also raised by donations, event fees, sponsorships and other fund raising events. Membership is not required to participate in club events, but does afford discounts, prize eligibiilty and other benefits.
Orlando Runners and Riders Mission Statement
The Orlando Runners and Riders club is formed with the following purposes and missions:
To perpetuate the club and its missions and purposes
Promote Good Health Through Exercise
To promote and foster exercise in the following sports and disciplines: Running, Road Cycling, Trail Cycling, Cyclocross, Swimming and Triathlons
Running and Cycling involve an inherent risk, and we strive to manage it. To ensure that our activities are as safe as practical, we stress approved safety procedures. We also support activism in local ordinances, laws and codes.
(COVID Update – Sep 2020: At this time the club has determined that wearing a face covering while exercising does much more harm than good, and therefore we do not encourage the use of such.)
Support Eligible Charities
The Sean Ashman Foundation, Inc, oversees the clubs finances and other accounts. In addition to supporting its own charitable mission, it also donates money to charities approved by the club.
Check under the “Courses and Rides” heading to find our latest events. The interclub communication is on our Facebook Group.
This club is also here to support other running or riding clubs, and provide resources to athletes.
