Soldier Ride - Babylon to Beaches

In two weeks, the Wounded Warrior Project's Soldier Ride will be presented by Macy's and I'm headed to my hometown of Babylon, Long Island, New York to help on the "Babylon to Beaches portion of the ride. Soldier Ride is a four-day rehabilitative cycling event for wounded veterans and includes:
  • a Hero's Reception at the American Airpower Museum in Farmingdale ($50 for dinner provided by Outback, music, beer/wine and prizes)
  • a NYC bike ride starting in Herald Square with Matthew Modine's "Bicycle for A Day" program
  • the Babylon to Beaches ride with a BBQ at Overlook Beach ($35 to ride, T-shirt and BBQ or just $10 for the BBQ)
  • an additional ride with celebrations in the Hamptons

Taking place just a few weeks after the Fourth of July, this is a great opportunity to thank the soldiers who have fought for the freedoms that day represents.

Visit to find out how you can participate - by donating, celebrating and encouraging the athletes along the bike routes!
