Ride2Recovery is a 501(c)3 whose mission is to improve the health and wellness of healing heroes through physical and mental rehabilitation programs that use cycling as the core activity.
One way Ride2Recovery does this is through general public events called Honor Rides. These one-day self paced, non-competitive rides are typically comprised of 3 different routes - each route catering to different ability levels.
At these rides, the general public will pay a registration fee to ride, and wounded veterans, of course, ride for free. By uniting wounded veterans and civilians in a one-day cycling event, civilians get a chance to “honor” the veterans, hence the name Honor Rides.
This is a great cause and we'd like you to be a part of it! Here are some videos to give you a better idea of what Ride2Recovery is all about:
United Health Care Video; what Ride2Recovery does as a whole
Extreme Home Makeover and Ride 2 Recovery
The Early Show and Ride 2 Recovery
Our COO is a wounded Army Lt. Colonel who tells you about our program
