USA WARRIOR STORIES is announcing the DVD release of WELCOME TO SOLDIER RIDE – a documentary about few fearless friends who cycle 4200 miles across America paving the way for thousands of wounded veterans to keep riding.
In 2004 Chris Carney, a bartender at The Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett, NY decided to ride his bike for charity. With the support of Talkhouse owner Peter Honerkamp, Talkhouse promoter Nick Kraus and Chris’ friend Tek Vakaloloma, Chris completed a 4200 mile coast-to-coast bicycle ride raising over $1 million in support of Wounded Warrior Project, a not-for-profit organization whose missionis to help injured service members aid and assist one another.
Chris’ ride caught the attention of two Iraq War veterans, SSG Heath Calhoun, a double leg amputee and SSG Ryan Kelly, a single leg amputee. Heath and Ryan started planning their own ride and asked Chris to help. In 2005 the three riders began their own unforgettable coast-to-coast ride. Soldier Ride begins connecting veterans to the communities that they have sacrificed so much for.
Welcome To Soldier Ride.
