About Ride 430:
The Ride 430 Challenge is a non-profit cycling event that helps give America’s injured military service people and their families hope and assistance as they travel the road to recovery. The Ride is a four-day, 430-mile challenge in which cyclists will complete as many 100 miles each day, including mountain climbs. The 2013 Ride430 had more than 16000 feet of vertical climbing. In addition to training and completing the ride, participants must fundraise, with the average rider raising more than $6,600 for the cause, more per rider than any event of its kind. Money raised by the Ride 430 Challenge supplements military assistance and bridges gaps to help injured service people and families who lost loved ones recover. Our funding helps provide everything from financial assistance, scholarships and adaptive sports equipment for injured heroes to camps for kids who’ve lost a parent in combat. The average charitable bike ride raises $12,000 a year. In our first 6 years, Ride 430 Challenge riders raised more than $1.3 million dollars!.
