The Warrior Ride is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization founded in Oak Island, North Carolina with a mission of rehabilitation for our injured war heroes. By implementing challenging adaptive bicycling and morale building events, The Warrior Ride founders believe our nation’s heroes are given an opportunity to be able to take pride in the skills they have and redefine their capabilities through accomplishment in an atmosphere of camaraderie and support. The Warrior Ride uses adaptive bicycling and other morale building events, such as kayaking and golf as a tool for recreation and rehabilitation. The Warrior Ride events take place in various locations throughout the United States. There is no cost to the service member to participate in The Warrior Ride events. All expenses are paid through donations and grants.
