MRP Motorcycle Adventure Tours for Veterans

An unforgettable ride for Veterans across Colorado's most scenic roads.

Published on 06.12.2015

Returning veterans suffering from PTSD or other invisible injuries now have a new option in recreational therapy. The non-profit Motorcycle Relief Project was recently formed to take veterans on multi-day motorcycle “Relief Rides” through the mountains of Colorado as a means of helping them decompress, connect with others who have had similar experiences, encounter nature and beauty, and learn valuable techniques for managing their injuries.

Participants will get to ride through incredible scenery both on and off the pavement. Rides will include carving the corners on some of Colorado’s most scenic paved roads, as well as backcountry riding on forest roads and moderate jeep trails. While not on the bikes, participants will have the chance to get to know one another, encourage one another, and learn and share practical ways for managing their injuries.

Groups of up to eight veterans and at least two guides will have the use of specially-designed adventure bikes. Participants must have a valid motorcycle license and at least some off-road experience. Veterans must get themselves to Denver but once they arrive all meals and lodging, protective gear, insurance and a fully equipped support vehicle will be provided during the tour.
