Ride 2 Recovery Great Lakes Challenge

A great ride around Lake Minnetonka

The riders, led by 10-year-old Nick from Wayzata, looped around Lake Minnetonka

A group of 120 injured war veterans and their supporters wrapped up a near 300 mile bike ride through the Great Lakes region this week. Ride 2 Recovery holds cycling events all over the nation to raise funds for mental and physical rehabilitation programs for our nation’s troops, and the rides themselves are a part of the participants’ healing process.

The Great Lakes Challenge started in Minneapolis, hit Red Wing, Rochester and Northfield, looped around Lake Minnetonka and back to Minneapolis! On the last day the group stopped by the Twins baseball game, with riders Joe Jackson and Patrick Zeigler throwing out the first pitch, and the riding home in the American Legion Parade.
