HOMETOWN HOSPITALITY TO WELCOME OUR WOUNDED VETS
On August 2nd, the Veterans Charity Ride will stop in Eagle, CO on their way to Sturgis. We are going to welcome the Veterans with a BBQ and party at Brush Creek Park. The party will be open to the public! If you ride, clear your schedule for the day or the long weekend and join the vets on the road as they experience some of the wonders that Colorado has to offer. We will rally a group of riders to meet the vets in Glenwood Springs to join them as they ride and rumble through Glenwood Canyon. All motorcycles are welcome (street legal of course).
On Thursday the riders will leave Eagle and head up Mount Evans, the highest paved road in America. Stay in Eagle overnight and ride along with the vets on this incredible adventure.
VETERANS CHARITY RIDE
Veterans Charity Ride (VCR) is a non-profit organization that uses Motorcycle Therapy and other life changing, life saving holistic programs that provide uplifting and healing experiences for wounded, severely injured and amputee veterans from all branches of service.
We provide our veterans with Indian Motorcycles, custom built Champion Sidecars and Trikes, to ride through the most beautiful scenic backroads of this great country, exploring America, getting our veterans outdoors, back into the environment, and connecting veterans with Mentors and other veterans, groups and supporters.
The end result of our program is a healthier and happier, more capable individual, who is now living life in a much better physical and mental condition, and able to help and support other veterans to do the same.
RIDE TO STURGIS BIKE RALLY
Every year, we take wounded and amputee veterans on Indian Motorcycles, custom built Champion Sidecars and Trikes from Los Angeles to the Sturgis Bike Rally in South Dakota for an Adventure of a Lifetime! In 2015, eight veterans made the trip on brand new Indian Motorcycles with two custom built Champion Sidecars. In 2016 we expanded the program to include twenty veterans and four sidecars. In 2017, the ride to Sturgis will take another twenty veterans on this epic journey with a fleet of Indian Motorcycles that includes six Champion Sidecars rigs.
We’ll spend nine days riding on America’s most beautiful backroads and highways, getting to know each other and helping each other with Motorcycle Therapy and Veteran to Veteran discussions. The shared experiences of serving brings them together, veteran to veteran to help each other heal. We also show the Veterans just how much their service means to America, by stopping in small towns along the way to meet the grateful people of our nation who want to welcome and celebrate these brave men and women. Along the way we surprise the riders with excursions and meet with interesting and inspiring people.
Once in Sturgis, we spend the week of the rally, riding the Black Hills, attending events and giving the Veterans the unique “Sturgis Experience”.
This simple concept, born out of a cross-country ride and a big purpose to help veterans is now a nationally recognized program.
