Veterans gave us boots on the ground.
We can give back -- with butts on bikes!
Committed to serving Connecticut's veterans, the Connecticut Veterans Legal Center (CVLC) is proud to host The Ride for Our Vets on Saturday, June 13th, 2020. We hope you'll join us again this year to raise money for disabled veterans facing homelessness and mental illness.
Thank you for helping us change a life.
Join The Cause and Support Our Veterans
The Ride for Our Vets is the only charity bike ride supporting Connecticut veterans. All funds go to the Connecticut Veterans Legal Center (CVLC) to provide free legal representation for veterans suffering from mental illness and homelessness.
In 2019, fundraisers raised an average of $600! We give you the tools to be a successful fundraiser for the cause.
From registration to ride day, The Ride Support Team has your back. We will help you raise funds and training tips to give you the most successful and enjoyable Ride experience. Our variety of route options and Rider Coach support will give you a fitting challenge and a game plan to succeed.
We encourage you to ride in honor of a veteran, individually or with a team. Click the link below to learn more about how to register and ride!
