Ride with Us
“As a veteran, through this experience, I’ve learned that it is my gift to be able to help another veteran in need and be able to contribute in any way to the community."

The Ride for Our Vets, a scenic tour through Fairfield, New Haven, and Litchfield Counties, is one of Connecticut’s annual bike events and the only one that directly impacts the lives of Connecticut Veterans by funding the mission of CVLC to remove legal barriers for Veterans. Registration opens March 15th.
With three cycling route options, we offer something for every skill and fitness level. Our routes are fully supported with rest stops, ample route marking, bike techs, sweep vans and more. No matter what route you choose, we will take care of you so all you have to do is ride and have fun and then celebrate with us after at the Post-Ride Celebration! While this year’s ride will primarily be an in-person tour, there will still be the option to participate virtually!
