Sea To Shining Sea Bike Ride Honors Military



A group of disabled veterans from America’s military passed through McConnellsburg last Thursday on a twomonth cross-country bicycle ride that began in San Francisco May 28 and will end in Virginia Beach on Saturday. Beginning their World T.E.A.M. Sports-organized bike ride in San Francisco on May 28, approximately 18 veterans with disabilities ranging from loss of limbs to blindness to post traumatic stress used a rest stop set up at the junction of Route 16 and Route 30 on their long journey across the USA. Their participation serves as an inspiration to other disabled persons nationally, as well as inspiring the able-bodied to overcome obstacles and challenges in life.
