Injured Veterans and Troops Biking Through Kentucky This Week
Injured military veterans, troops, and supporters are cycling through our region this week to benefit programs that aid in physical and mental rehabilitation.
Over 200 cyclists departed Covington, Kentucky, on Sunday, in honor of a program called Riding 2 Recovery, which helps injured veterans improve their health and wellness through individual and group cycling.
Cyclists are scheduled to bike from Elizabethtown to Bowling Green Wednesday and eventually make their way to Nashville by Saturday.
Some of the bicycles used by participants have been custom-fitted to the physical needs of the rider.
Over the course of the seven-day event, Ride 2 Recovery participants will bike over 450 miles between northern Kentucky and the Tennessee capital.
