Cyclists complete 400 mile ride in honor of Veterans

Posted: Updated:

The third annual Honor Ride Clay Hunt took off in Dallas Saturday morning, as a part of a larger effort to honor veterans. The goal of the Honor Ride Clay Hunt is to honor the service, values and memory of Sgt. Clay Hunt, a sniper with the U.S. Marine Corps who served in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Organizers of the ride said he fought his own internal battles against the physical, emotional and psychological effects of war before taking his life in March of 2011.

Cyclists are joining in on a ride already in progress with more than 200 injured veterans on the last day of the 400-mile Ride 2 Recovery Texas Challenge. That event is a multi-day ride that began in Houston March 23rd and will cross the finish line Saturday, March 29th with the Honor Ride Clay Hunt cyclists. Saturday's ride includes 23, 35 and 65 mile options.

Saturday's ride started and will finish at Coopers BBQ at the Stockyards.

Ride 2 Recovery, a 501(c) 3, helps injured veterans improve their health and wellness through individual and group cycling programs at military bases, as well as on seven long-distance challenge events staged each year.
