5th Annual Wounded Warrior Project Soldier Ride Cape Cod


YARMOUTH – On Wednesday, September 21, between 12 noon and 5 p.m. approximately 60 wounded young American service men and women from the current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan will arrive in the town of Yarmouth. They will prepare to take part in a rehabilitative bicycle ride on Cape Cod and Boston on the latest stop of Wounded Warrior Project’s National Soldier Ride.

These brave wounded warriors will be staying in the town Yarmouth and will be riding specially adapted bicycles on the Shining Sea Bikeway on Thursday, September 22, from North Falmouth to Woods Hole starting at 9:30 a.m. They will then ride in Provincetown on Friday, September 23, starting at 9:15 a.m.

The public is invited and highly encouraged to cheer on the heroes at the beginning of each ride, as well as show their support along the trails.

These special American Warriors will be fitted for upright, recumbent or hand-crank cycles to suit their injuries before setting out on the 3-day trip, which will take them from Cape Cod to Boston.

After Friday’s ride, the heroes will be transported by ferry from Provincetown to Boston for a Red Sox game at Fenway Park on Friday night and the big Soldier Ride in Boston on Saturday.

The mission of the Wounded Warrior Project is to honor and empower wounded warriors. Its purpose is to raise awareness and to enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members; to help injured men and women aid and assist each other; and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet their needs. The goal of Soldier Ride is to help wounded war veterans gain confidence as they make the transition from rehabilitation back to civilian life.
