Bruce Gustafson is working with the Ride 2 Recovery
organization and sent us these photos from the desert outside Las Vegas, Nevada, where he is spending 3 days mountain biking with 50 injured soldiers. They have 4 hand cycle mountain bike trikes that are setup for guys who lost their legs and Bruce says, "You should see the smile on their faces blasting over rocks and pedaling with their arms. It is very cool!"
We salute these riders and there is no way we can thank them enough for their sacrifices. To get more information on Ride 2 Recovery, click here
Some riders would give up mountain biking if they lost their legs. Not these guys.
These guys are amazing and inspirational. Now get out of the way. They are ready to hammer.
THERE ARE SO MANY WAYS TO GET MOUNTAIN BIKE ACTION:
Mountain Bike Action is
a monthly magazine devoted to all things mountain biking (yes, that's
12 times a year because we never take a month off of mountain biking).
It has been around since 1986 and we're still having fun. You can start a
subscription by clicking here or calling (800) 767-0345. Also available from the Apple Newsstand for reading on your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch.
