The event unites injured service members from across the country for 3 days to focus on good health, camaraderie, and healing.
The first full day was dedicated to education and preparation for the main ride to follow. The group joined instructors at the Olympic Training Center (OTC) in Chula Vista to learn practical bike maintenance and practice specific biking drills to improve control and efficiency.
