The Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) Soldier Ride will be in Phoenix on Oct. 17 for a three-day rehabilitative cycling event.

Soldier Ride brings Wounded Warriors from the region and across the country together for a long weekend focused on physical health and wellness, camaraderie, and healing. Events include a bike fitting where warriors are fit with adaptive equipment, and two days of rides through Encanto Village to Paradise Valley as well as Cave Creek. There will also be physical health and wellness events such as a yoga session throughout the long weekend.

During the ride, WWP provides state-of-the-art cycling equipment to Wounded Warriors at no cost, which includes adaptive hand cycles, trikes, and bicycles to accommodate various injuries and disabilities, as well as upright road bikes for riders not requiring adaptive equipment.

The Soldier Ride staff carefully plans each route, and engages the local community and law enforcement for support. On Friday, Oct. 18, the ride will begin at North Central Avenue in Encanto Village and will end at North Tatum Road in Paradise Valley. The following day, the ride will begin and end in Cave Creek.
