2013 Team BikingLasVegas.com Ride 2 Recovery Honor Ride

Last year our team had such a great time riding in this event… let’s do it again!!

ABOUT RIDE 2 RECOVERY:

For those of you who want to participate in a local charity ride that benefits injured veterans, this ride is for you.  Ride 2 Recovery’s mission is “to improve the health and wellness of injured veterans by providing a life changing experience that can impact their lives forever.”  What makes their program unique is they focus on cycling as the main tool in the injured vets recovery process. R2R supports Spinning® Recovery Labs and outdoor cycling programs at Military and VA locations around the U.S. to help injured veterans overcome obstacles they face. Cycling is an important part of the recovery and rehabilitation program for two reasons:

1. Cycling is an activity that almost all patients with mental and physical disabilities can participate.

2. Participation in the Ride 2 Recovery Program helps speed up the recovery and rehabilitation process.
