Bike Riders Raise Money for Injured Troops

Bike Riders Raise Money for Injured Troops
By Steven Donald Smith - Four thousand miles is a long distance to travel, especially if the mode of transportation is a bicycle.


Washington, D.C. - American Forces Press Service - infoZine - The riders of Soldier Ride 2005 intend to trek 4,200 miles from Marina Del Ray, Calif., to Montauk, N.Y., on the eastern tip of Long Island to raise money for injured servicemembers.

The riders began their journey May 21 and are scheduled to conclude July 19.

Chris Carney, a bartender at Stephen Talkhouse music club in East Hampton, N.Y., founded the nonprofit Soldier Ride after he visited Walter Reed Army Medical Center here with his friend and boss Peter Honerkamp. Carney was so moved by what he saw at Walter Reed that he came up with the idea for a cross-country bicycle ride to raise funds for the Wounded Warrior Project, he said.
