Matt Kern Warrior Rider



Twelve (12) riders bicycle across America from Oceanside, CA to Ground Zero New York, NY. Pairs of riders alternate riding for 24 hours per day for eight (8) days. This event is an extension of the annual MC-LEF / TEAM TRAVIS ride from Washington DC to NYC.

Date: September 22 to September 30, 2012

Goal: To safely ride across America and in the process, raise national level awareness for our foundations. Our financial goal is to raise $1MM. All donations will be split evenly between MC-LEF and the Travis Manion Foundation.
