Ride 2 Recovery started in 2008 when a “therapist thought cycling would be an alternative therapy to PTSD and TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) as well as physical injury rehabilitation.” It helps people and communities get moving forward together again. They use cycling as method.
People gain a clearer sense of purpose and increased health by cycling. It’s better than any prescription. Cycling activates something inside us. It calls on us to help ourselves.
United Healthcare helps to sponsor the Ride 2 Recovery program for Veterans. They use cycling to get into the flow and increase the luster of life. Sharing rides helps people shift perceptions, practice teamwork, and feel a part of the landscape and community. Cycling transfers our energy over to the smooth pedaling motion. It tones us all over, and increases suppleness and resiliency. Let’s make room for more cycling in our lives.
Veterans are entitled to return home to a healing environment. We can help by shaping a culture that empowers people to walk and ride together. We want roads designed and engineered to facilitate human powered transportation, and a culture that drives with care.
When we drive our roads we are in the company of heroes. Every individual is a hero to someone. Let’s support people cycling and walking, the better to be healthy and free.
