Houston Honor Ride (AKA Independence Ride)

For several years now, I have volunteered at the Independence Ride in Wallis, TX. It benefitted wounded vets, especially those with amputations. The Independence Fund, the national organization for the ride would bring out bikes adapted for vets with missing or paralyzed limbs. There would be hundreds of registered riders and up to 150 vets with various disabilities at the ride.

Last year the ride moved to Project Hero, and became The Honor Ride. It's the same ride, put on by the same local people, from the same start line it has always had. But everyone in the area seems to have forgotten about the ride. Three weeks out from the ride they are at 2% of their fundraising goal (about $2400).

If you are looking for a ride on Nov 10, please think about heading for Wallis, TX (East of Houston near I-10) and support this ride. Lunch is BBQ chicken after the ride, usually with some live music and a silent auction.

You can read more about the ride and the organization here: Project Hero Website

Register for the ride here: Honor Ride Registration

Hope to see you there!

Jeff

Thanks for the reminder. It is not even listed on BikeBarn's website, a site which I go often to see upcoming local rides.

I would send emails to:

1) All local bike shops
2) SWCC and NWCC
3) Ready2Roll
4) BikeHouston
5) MS150
