Runners Club

The Ford Runners Club (FRC) is a very active club with over 500 Ford Motor Company employee, retiree, and alumni members receiving our monthly club communications and participation in several events throughout the year.

The club has weekly group training runs at a local high school track starting from March through October. The FRC’s main event each year is a charity road running and track and field competition vs GM and Chrysler called the Corporate Cup Relays that is held in June. This competition is a lot of fun and raises money for local Special Olympics chapters as well as another local charity.

Other Club events include participation in the Crim Ten Mile Team Competition in August, Brooksie Way Half Marathon Team Competition in the fall, Club Meetings where we bring in guest speakers on running related topics, and various fun runs and volunteering as a group at local races.

Cycling Club—G.E.A.R.S.

Going Easy And Riding Slower
GEARS is dedicated to assisting new riders all aspects of riding, including fixing flat tires, adjusting derailleurs and answering those deep questions like, just what is this thing-a-ma-jig on that doohickey there anyway?

So ask lots of questions, please.
GEARS wants to ensure that all riders are comfortable with their bikes and see cycling as a FUN activity in which enjoying the scenery is valued more than going really, really, really fast or how you look in spandex. ( By the way: Spandex is not required ).

Yup, maybe GEARS folks are treating cycling a little less seriously than most other clubs, but wasn’t that the point of it all when you got your first bike?   Our goal is to get people comfortable with bike riding and to extend their comfort level to the point at which they feel can ride whenever and wherever they want.

COMFORT: Knocking down barriers!
Physical Comfort — Find out what can be done to allow you to ride your bike more comfortably (bike fit, clothes).
Comfort in Ability — Help riders realize that distance, pace & terrain can all be overcome.
Comfort of Knowledge — Learn more about parts of bikes, what they do and how to fix/adjust them; what to bring on rides and different bikng venues.

As you become more comfortable with cycling, you will find that you are able to explore so much more:

Organized rides
Multi-day tours
Charity rides
Mountain biking
Rides combined with camping
Racing
……… the possibilities are ENDLESS!
