Every day our men and women in uniform put themselves in harm's way for us and endure months on end away from their families. Unfortunately, some come back from their overseas deployment with severe injuries that keeps them from doing the things they love. Many of these injuries can be enormously difficult, both physically and psychologically to recover from.

It's a lot to ask of anybody, and we appreciate everything they do for us. That's why Bike Nashbar is excited to partner with RIDE 2 RECOVERY. It's an organization that helps our veterans HEAL AND RECOVER through the JOYS OF CYCLING. Among other things, Ride 2 Recovery provides therapy and training programs to further enhance their rehabilitation, helps them design and obtain specially adapted bikes that suit their needs, and connects them with fellow wounded warriors all over the country. These programs have a LIFE CHANGING IMPACT for injured veterans and their families. It's an organization that we're proud to be a part of.

It's easy to help our military veterans rehabilitate through cycling by making a donation to Ride 2 Recovery. Add a donation (in $1.00 increments) to your next Nashbar order. 100% of your donation will go directly to Ride 2 Recovery.

Thank you, and ride safely.
-Your friends at the Bike Nashbar team

As part of their rehabilitation, participating wounded warriors complete a three step program that helps them discover what they're capable of and gives the public a chance to come out and show their support.

This is where our heroes get introduced to Ride to Recovery and begin their training program. It's a series of organized cycling programs run through military hospitals, Wounded Warrior units and VA hospitals across the U.S. that allows our healing heroes to participate in a personalized and progressive cycling program that promotes a complete and quicker rehabilitation.   Once veterans have completed their Project Hero training, they're ready to put everything they've done into practice. These multi-day cycling events ask disabled veterans to push themselves to their physical and mental limits to show themselves what they can do.   These single-day cycling events give the public and fellow cyclists the opportunity to come out and ride in a non-competitive, fun event with our healing veterans.
