R2R GULF COAST CHALLENGE 2012
March 4 -10 2012 Tallahassee had the honor of hosted the R2R Gulf Coast Challenge. This event is part of the Wounded Warrior Project. These Veterans (200 strong) started in New Orleans and ended here in Tallahassee, The Riders Chapter 84 Joe Dubois and Jim Brennan had the honor of assisting in the escort duties from Panama City to Tallahassee. This was the hardest thing I have done since boot camp. It took 6 hours at 20 mph to make the trip, but I will do again and again just to see the men and women (Veterans) get out there on bicycles and ride. I spoke with one veterans who lost his leg, right hand and had an nervous system that has to be charged to keep his heart and lungs operating and I never heard him say I can't do it. This attitude ring out through the entire group of riders.
