Veterans Pedal Through County

A group of military veterans made their way through Fulton County via bicycle over the weekend as part of the “From Sea To Shining Sea” inaugural ride organized by World T.E.A.M. Sports. Sunday’s portion of the trek by the veterans, many of whom were injured while serving overseas in Afghanistan and Iraq, marked the group’s 58th day of bicycling. The trip originated in San Francisco and will conclude in Virginia Beach. Proceeds raised through the ride have been earmarked for Soldiers’ Angels and World T.E.A.M. Sports, which help disabled veterans have active lifestyles. More information on the ride can be found online at www.s2ssbikeride.org.
