Pedal Against PTSD

Our goal is empower veterans to overcome PTSD through cycling and to raise awareness to struggles of post traumatic stress disorder.

We want to be able to raise funds to provide bikes to qualified vets,maintain 4-6 bikes as a rental fleet for guest on our rides, and have a support vehicle dedicated to transporting bicycles, maintenance, equipment and riders. We want to use a monthly social ride as a means of inviting struggling vets to meet other vets and be informed of the programs available to them in the DFW area. From there we will maintain a network of accountability to gain a personal touch to these warriors.

Our goal is to never compete with functioning systems already in action, yet communicate the local resources via a cycling community. The goal is huge but we believe the need is even bigger. We feel there are more vets needing assistance than the government can handle. Just spend 5 minutes in the Dallas VA hospital and you will see what we mean.

Our Strategic Vision:
1.) To provide quality bicycles to veterans and military in need through an application process.
2.) To create a support network that provides a larger community for our team members to plug into.
3.) To raise money for research and development through our PAPTSD Grind charity ride series.
