Dear Fellow Bicyclists:

The simple joy of a bicycle ride. Wind through the hair, the fresh air and sunshine that we all share. Now, you can share this simple pleasure with those who are challenged in everyday life because of the wounds suffered in service to our country. Let’s join hands, wear your club colors and ride with and for a local group of wounded veterans in the name of friendship!

This event is a fundraiser for Wounded Heroes to help in their efforts to provide assistance to veterans who sustained injuries while serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. Participants are asked to pledge $1 (or more) per mile.

If you can’t make the ride, you can sponsor a rider or a group/team or donate by going to: http://woundedheroesofamerica.org/AliveDay/
