Each year, Road Warrior Foundation hosts a group of deserving military veterans for an epic, cross-country adventure. Each unique piece of “adventure therapy” purposefully takes veterans out of their comfort zones and daily routines in a way that establishes bonds with other like-minded individuals and build incredible friendships along the way.
COMING VERY VERY SOON!
Austin, TX to Charleston, SC!
In 2016 the group rode from Johnson Creek, WI, to New Orleans, LA. It was an incredible adventure with scenic roads and destinations along the way, including a day at Table Rock Lake in Arkansas where the veterans enjoyed riding Sea-Doo watercraft and taking turns riding a fly board. The ride ended at New Orleans Bike Fest.
In 2015, the group rode from Sherbrooke, QC, to Key West, FL. The experiences along the way were incredible, including riding up Mt. Washington in New Hampshire, as well as riding the world renowned Blue Ridge Parkway from Roanoke, VA, to Asheville, NC. None of the veterans had prior riding experience, but each were able to quickly and expertly learn to ride the Can-Am Spyder.
The inaugural Road Warrior Ride was in 2014, going from Seattle, WA, to Tampa, FL.
Awareness and Fundraising Adventures
The Road Warrior Foundation takes its mission far beyond its annual Road Warrior Ride. Throughout the year, members of the organization are constantly providing veterans with experiences of a lifetime. The Foundation’s vast network of connections – including its title sponsor, Can-Am – works alongside them to impact as many veterans as possible.
HOPS FOR HEROES
Each year since 2014, Tampa Bay area breweries and brew pubs have come together to support the Road Warrior Foundation with a fundraising event called Hops for Heroes. The goal of the event is to help raise awareness and funding for that year’s Road Warrior Ride.
