This Sept. 15 video shows cyclists participating in the Air Force charity bike ride from the Wright Brothers National Monument to Washington DC celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Air Force.

To celebrate the US Air Force’s 75th Anniversary and to raise money for the Wounded Airman Program, the USAF Cycling Team of Air Force & Space Command cyclists plan to ride their human powered bicycles from the Wright Brothers Memorial in Kill Devil Hills to the USAF Memorial in Arlington, VA. Their four-day ride began on September 15th at 7:30 a.m. with a 90 plus mile ride to their first overnight stop at a hotel in Chesapeake, VA.

This year’s ride is the inaugural M2M. The Air Force Cycling Team plans to make it an annual event, eventually involving thousands of cyclists. If one would like to help the team support the Wounded Airmen Program (a wonderful charity that supports wounded Airmen and Guardians and their families), you can do so at Air Force Memorial to Memorial Ride.

    The gentleman on the recumbent is the recently retired US Air Force Chief of Staff, General (4 Star) David Goldfein who will ride the entire 330 miles. His successor as AF Chief of Staff, General Charles Brown will mount his bike and ride with the group during the 4th day of their ride to the USAF Memorial.
