Indian Motorcycle Supports Sixth Annual Veterans Charity Ride at Sturgis
The sixth annual Veterans Charity Ride to Sturgis kicks off July 29, 2020 in Moab, Utah. Indian Motorcycle is once again supporting participants, providing a variety of Indian Motorcycle models to ride during the two-week event. The 2020 Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is scheduled to start on August 7, 2020, at the time of writing.
A total of 15 veterans will participate, including nine new and six returning veterans who will act as mentors to the new members of the group. They will ride a range of Indian motorcycles fitted with Rekluse automatic clutches, as well as bespoke Champion sidecars for veteran amputees and paraplegics. It’s a mind-cleansing journey and the kind of therapy that only a good, long motorcycle ride can provide.
The 2020 race is a little different from previous VCR events, and not just because of the current global pandemic. This year, VCR is emphasizing a “service before self” initiative, which will also bring personal protective equipment to COVID-19 first responders along the way, as well as social distancing barbecues at select stops for these first responders. .
“In these extraordinary times, getting our veterans out of the house and supporting them with the liberating power of motor therapy is more important than ever,” said Dave Frey, U.S. Army veteran and founder of Veterans Charity Ride. “To be able to combine these efforts and honor our selfless and invaluable first responders during this unprecedented pandemic makes this journey even more rewarding. In light of COVID-19, we will implement the necessary precautions to stay safe and healthy, as we come together to heal and support each other on our journey to the legendary Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.
VCR and Indian Motorcycle say they will follow strict safety and hygiene guidelines every step of the way to keep all participants on the ride and at their tour stops healthy and healthy. You can learn more and support VCR’s efforts on their website.
