By Steve Frothingham

LOS ANGELES (BRAIN) — No Vet Alone, a peer support network for military veterans and first responders, is planning group rides and other events at bike shops and other venues for Veterans Day weekend. The group is hoping to enlist more bike shops to host events, which mark the 100th anniversary of the holiday.

Performance Bicycle plans events at all 105 of its stores and also is offering participants a store discount and a chance to win a new Fuji bike. ISM Raceway, a NASCAR track near Phoenix, Arizona, also will host an event, with No Vet Alone veteran cyclists leading drivers on a lap before the start of the Can-Am 500 on Sunday, Nov. 11.

Other events are being planned with the Veterans Administration and at community, school and corporate partner locations throughout the nation. Primal Wear will be the official technical apparel partner for the events.

“The No Vet Alone program is a unique and important program connecting our veterans and first responders,” said John Wordin, the group’s founder. “Any community can be involved on the 100th Veterans Day weekend.”
