The Warrior Ride?


THE WARRIOR RIDE was founded by husband and wife Bob and Debra Racine from Oak Island, NC. After their first cycling event in 2005, they knew that adaptive cycling presented itself as a tool for recreation and rehabilitation for injured service members. Bob and Debra believe that with the recreation and the camaraderie of being with peers who have similar experiences it can help put our nation's heroes on the path to healing. Adapting bicycles to injuries can be challenging, but they make it work. Bob is a three tour Vietnam Vet and after being mistreated and receiving zero honor from the American Public upon his returns from Vietnam, Bob promised himself that if there was another war, that he would be on the forefront of welcoming home and honoring our defenders of freedom. Being a Veteran himself Bob understands the sacrifices made every day by our servicemen and woman. The Cycling events are Bob and Debra’s way of saying “Thank You” to our nation’s heroes. "This is our life work, our personal ministry, and one of the greatest joys of our life."
