The Bike Team was created in 2015, the team was first utilized during the Blazing Bullets and Seam May10k/5k Runs earlier that year. That same year at the Adams County Fair (pictured below) was a major event for the bike team, the County Fair added several new venues that covered more area of the county fair grounds. This is a better fit in that the bike team can cover more area in a short time.
What we do
The mission for RSAR's Bike Team is to do a hasty search, get around faster than on foot, look for lost persons. They also are very helpful during 10k and 5k runs in the county. With the County Parks adding more events each year their requirements and special application will be growing over the years to come.
