Ride For Veterans (2021)

"Cycling helps me unwind; it helps me breathe. I am riding for my brothers and sisters who did not come home with me, and those who did but are forever changed by war. I am riding for my wife, my daughter, and the families of every soldier out there. They are the real heroes. " - Former US Army Sergeant Jesse Jones (Tegh Singh)

Following our 2020 YYC Ride to Remembrance, we are once again riding our bikes on Remembrance Day to raise funds to support Veterans Transition Network (VTN) as they support transitioning service members. Without VTN, many service members like Tegh Singh – who returned from Iraq and Afghanistan with Operational Stress Injuries (PTSD) - would not have the practical tools to overcome the challenges borne from this unique trauma.

This year, Tegh Singh and Pete Spearing will ride a 35km route through Calgary on November 11th, stopping at various military landmarks and sharing the journey on social media (IG: @rideforveterans_yyc, @teghdaya/Twitter: @teghsinghca, @yyc_bike)

About Veterans Transition Network: Our unique group-based Veterans Transition Program (VTP) gives Vets a place to help each other work through post-military barriers and transfer their military career strengths to the civilian world. Backed by 20 years of research, the VTP has helped over 950 Veterans overcome PTSD, plan for their futures, reintegrate into communities and rebuild relationships with spouses, families, and children.

On behalf of Tegh Singh, his family, and Veterans all over Canada who rely on these programs to rebuild lives with loved ones – thank you for your support.
