Road Cycling ďIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

Hey 41-ers, throw a few dollars at this to help disabled servicemen and women ride....

This April 25-27, I am participating in an inspiring event honoring our nationís servicemen and women, particularly those with disabilities. You have a unique opportunity to help me celebrate their service to our nation.

The 2014 Face of America Ride is an annual bicycle ride from World T.E.A.M. Sports, a not-for profit organization that celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2013. This two-day bike ride from the Pentagon at our Nationís Capital to the historic battlefields of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania honors our military - veterans and active duty, disabled and able-bodied ó and the true American Spirit.

Like all World T.E.A.M. Sports events, the Face of America brings together disabled and non-disabled athletes to provide inspiration to all Americans. Everybody is encouraged to join as a participant in this immensely satisfying event. If you canít join me in participating, you can still show your support for our disabled servicemen and women by making a contribution. As a participant, I have agreed to raise funds through my ride. You can make a contribution to support me by clicking on this web link.

There is no charge for any disabled servicemen or women to ride. Your donation will be applied to paying their event costs, including accommodations, food, bikes and other associated expenses. Other donations and sponsorship support will cover the costs of the event.

World T.E.A.M. Sports is a registered 501(c)(3) organization, so donations are tax deductible to the limit permitted by law. The organization's federal tax identification number is 56-1827893. Learn more about World T.E.A.M. Sports' finances, including past IRS 990 forms, at https://worldteamsports.org/about-us/financials/.

Thanks!

I picked up this one as one of my Christmas presents from my lovely wife.
Kind of cheesy, but I'll wear it with Army Pride!

Nothing cheesy about that jerseysoldier. You earned the right to wear it and having a Ranger tab tells me a whole lot. Thank you for your service, sir.

Anyone a Wounded Warrior jersey recipient here? That is my one charity to support now, a good organization helping deserving men and women back into their life as fully as possible. Our club tries to support them with a ride each year.

yep, the camo is what throws it off, I would have preferred a solid black with sudbued army logo but that wouldn't be great for a road jersey.

Bill, I am going to try to volunteer for the Baltimore WWP ride this year, I'd love to ride with those guys!

Great jersey, we should never forget the POW's and never stop the searching for answers.

Greetings! I just retired after 23 years (Army and then Coast Guard). I have more time to dedicate to road cycling after a long hiatus. Thank you to all who have/are serving.

Hey all, just under 5 years in the Marine Corps. Thank to all who have served, are serving, and your families.

I know this is a little off topic, but I figured this was the best audience, and it's one more way to help those who serve. I am doing a gravel grinder as a fundraiser for the Semper Fi Fund, a great wounded warrior charity. If you think you might even be interested in donating, you can read a bit more about the charity at my post in the "charity events" sub forum, here: https://www.bikeforums.net/charity-ev...r-charity.html

Every little bit helps, Thanks again!

S/F

Semper Fi, brother, stick around here, and when you get back home post some pics when you ride with wife and son.

Thought this might be a good place to put this. While out on my ride today, I was nearby the local airport, and headed the opposite way was a convoy of military transport and cargo vehicles. I'm guessing they picked up from the airport. Maybe 15 vehicles in total, I didn't know what else to do but give them all a big thumbs up as they passed by. From what I could see through the windshields every vehicle waved or gave a thumbs up in return. Coming from a military family (I did not serve, but father and grandfather did) I appreciate all you brave gentleman do and/or did for this beloved country. God Bless You All.

Eighty-Duece on the loose. No sky too high. No blast too fast. You call we fall. When it absolutely positively has to be destroyed overnight.

Spent some time in 307th Eng. when they were still with the Division. We walked some of the same ground Brother. Been out for quite awhile, and always miss putting my feet and knees in the breeze. Thanks for your service. Same to all the others on here who served or are serving.

I don't get any cycling mags or anything, but if anyone deployed is in need, drop me a line. I'll do what I can.

When I retired I moved back home to D/FW for three years and 6 months ago I moved to Laurinburg to be near my daughter. Once a week I drive up to Bragg to ride the Plank Rd/Manchester 50 mile loop for some hills. Bragg is the only place I feel at home. Kind of sucks because I'm in awesome shape 100% ready to deploy again. This pic is at the south end of Sicily drop zone where the Longstreet Rd hardball ends. I just sit here and stare at the DZ, I know every inch of it.

I know what you mean. They weren't kidding when they used to say, "Once in Division, always in Division." I've sat here to trying to describe what it was like to be part of Division at Planet Bragg. I've decided it is impossible, but I know I've missed the place, people, and my "job" since I left. The Plank Rd./Manchester loop ride sounds nice, as does sitting in the shade of a tree looking out of Sicily DZ. Kind of a different perspective when one has time to sit and contemplate I guess. Whole lot of history on that piece of ground.

Yesterday I rode the EBC Century at Homestead Miami Speedway to benefit wounded veterans (obtain hand cycles etc). I took the opportunity to honor my fellow P-3 Aircrews that are still on patrol. I was also carrying with me a flag given to me by my 2nd generation AW son who is also a rescue swimmer.

Nice thread. Thanks for keeping it alive for so long. It is good to know that people remember that military members are still there and still serving. Also appreciate that people remember that women also serve. I started in 1978 and, after raising two kids, went back in and still serve today. Thanks for your support.
