Another bicycle group on the highway. As the stress in the urban areas increases from population increases, we can expect a reciprocal stress on our lovely strip of coast between TWO large urban areas!
Ride 2 Recovery (R2R) is a non-profit organization that helps improve the health and wellness of injured veterans by providing rehabilitation through cycling. We organize out-door non-competitive cycling events to enable injured veterans the ability to rehabilitate, both physically and mentally, from the agonies of war. Some of our combat wounded veterans have specialized bikes made for them to deal with their particular injury (many are amputees). The continued support from the schools not only keep our riders motivated on the challenge, it is also a great boost of morale to have the support of the students cheering them on as they make their journey to recovering.
We are currently planning and wrapping up this year’s California Challenge for 180 active and inactive military personnel October 5 – 11, 2014.

We want to notify you of our presence and see if you and the students of PACIFIC VALLEY SCHOOL would be interested in supporting our troops as they ride by on
Tuesday, October 07 at approximately 12:22pm. Other schools along the route in the past usually have the students make signs, wear red white and blue, and hold American Flags to show their support as the riders pass by the school.
We have 5 challenges a year throughout the US. Let’s put California on the map as the state with the most school support.
The veterans are looking forward to seeing the students out cheering them on.
