Published November 11, 2015

SALT LAKE CITY (BRAIN) -- For the next two years, Scott Sports will support Ride 2 Recovery, a veterans program started in 2008 that promotes physical and mental rehabilitation through cycling. Aside from bikes, the company will support the program with sunglasses and helmets. 

Ride 2 Recovery president and founder John Wordin said, “We’re thrilled that Scott shares our vision of cycling not just as recreation, but also as a pathway to holistic health. All of us as committed cyclists see and enjoy the benefits of cycling for recreation, fitness, transportation, and competition. Our program is unique in that we promote the physical and mental benefits from riding to help veterans find their independence and feel that they are part of a team.”

By way of programs such as Project Hero, Honor Rides, and Challenges, Ride 2 Recovery introduces veterans to cycling at all levels. The therapeutic benefits of riding are made accessible to veterans at every stage of recovery. 

“We support cycling at every level,” said Nic Sims, marketing director at Scott Sports. “From world champion mountain bikers and triathletes, to Tour de France teams, to the NICA high school leagues, we all have the same passion for cycling. By working with R2R, we hope to also share our passion with these veterans.”
