Tour of Honor Motorcycle Riders Visit Rangely Colorado
Tour of Honor supports the Fisher House, Operation Comfort Warrior, and Police and Fire: The Fallen Heroes
Rangely, CO April, 1, 2018 - The Tour of Honor today announced the selection of the Veterans Memorial in Rangely as one of the sites in the 2018 edition of the Tour of Honor event. Riders from across the U.S. and Canada will memorials in Rangely and all 50 states between the months of April and October. Rangely is one of the seven memorials selected in Colorado.
Per rider preference, $20 from each paid registration will go to Fisher House Foundation, Operation Comfort Warriors, or Police and Fire: The Fallen Heroes. All profits after expenses will be divided equally between the three charities.
The Tour of Honor is the vision of brothers Steve and Dave Brooks. Created in 2011, the event has grown from eight states in 2011 to all fifty states.
The event is a season-long, self-directed ride to memorials and monuments around the continental U.S. and Hawaii. Beginning on April 1, riders plot their own routes and visit as many sites as they wish, documenting their visit to each site with a photo. Trophies are awarded to the first three riders to visit all the destinations in a state or region. Pins and finishers certificates will be given to all who visit seven sites or more.
“The Tour of Honor is a great reason to hit the open road, honor our heroes, and contribute to a good cause”, said Steve Brooks, Event Routemaster. “Our riders tell us the Tour of Honor has a profound and lasting effect upon them. Colorado is home to some of the finest motorcycle roads and spectacular scenery in the country. Bringing the Tour of Honor and Colorado together will create a powerful, memorable experience for our participants – and celebrate our men and women in the armed services.”
The Tour of Honor is sanctioned by the American Motorcycle Association and the Iron Butt Association.
