Soldier Ride Across America Challenges Warriors to Exceed Goals

TEXARCANA, Texas, Sept. 23, 2018 -- Riders participating in Soldier Ride Across America will relay more than 3,300 miles from New York City to San Diego, California, to mark the 15th anniversaries of Soldier Ride® and Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP). The riders are wounded warriors with experience in local Soldier Rides. The local versions of Soldier Ride are usually multi-day events where warriors are fitted to make the ride comfortable, and they are coached along the way. 

Soldier Ride Across America riders do have WWP coaching to support their efforts, but how far they take that coaching depends on them. What does it take to go the distance while managing injuries?

Soldier Ride Across America - How Wounded Warrior Project Prepares Riders For Success (1)

BROWNSVILLE, Tenn., Sept. 21, 2018 -- Soldier Ride Across America marks 15 years of journeys to recovery, transformations, and new connections made on the road. The riders are pedaling through Tennessee this week. But before the bicycle spokes start turning, a safety net opens to support riders through every mile of the journey.

Soldier Ride Across America is not a competition. In fact, it's known as a "no drop ride," because no one is left behind.

"We want to ensure warriors' success by helping them prepare both physically and mentally," said Adam Faine, Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) Soldier Ride®manager.
