S.C.O.R., which stands for "Specialized Coronary Outpatient Rehabilitation," was founded 1974 by Randy Ice, P.T., C.C.S. We are an incorporated, non-profit recreational bicycling club which encourages bicycling as form of rehabilitative therapy after heart attack, coronary bypass surgery, angioplasty, stents, valve replacement, congestive heart failure and other forms of heart disease.
SCOR members promote safe cycling and emphasize the heath benefits of cycling and related activities. Members sponsor and volunteer at the Solvang Century, Metric and Half Century bike rides. The money we raise from these rides supports Camp Bon Couer, Camp del Corazon and Camp Taylor. These are camps for children with unusually severe congenital heart disease who for the first time in their life get to experience summer camping activities in a medically supervised environment with their peers. SCOR has been sponsoring these camps for over 32 years. We also donate to the Tour de Cure American Diabetes Association ride and have done so for many years as well. Our current headquarters is located in Whittier, California. To learn more about becoming a member of SCOR, please call 1 800 548 4447, or visit our website at WWW.SCORCCC.COM
Over the years, we have always emphasized bicycle safety (we were one of the first rides to make helmets mandatory). In fact, our accident rate of one injury per 182,500 person-miles ridden in the last 35 years is lower than the accident rate training where you live, suggesting that you as a rider are safer in our rides despite the number of participants.
The money SCOR has raised has funded four Team SCOR’s in the Race Across America relay division, Make A Wish Foundation, the American Diabetes Association, the AXA World Team Ride and the three children’s congenital heart disease summer camps listed above.
