Veterans bike from Providence to Hartford Sept. 11 in the UnitedHealthcare Ride 2 Recovery Minuteman Challenge. The nonprofit event is a six-day, 330-mile ride from Boston to New York City. Ride 2 Recovery supports physical and psychological rehabilitation programs for injured veterans, featuring cycling as its core activity. Veterans use hand cycles, recumbent vehicles, tandems and traditional bikes. This is the third year that UnitedHealthcare is serving as Ride 2 Recovery’s presenting sponsor.
