Saturday, June 17, 2017


The RIDE For Our Vets is the only charity bike ride benefiting Connecticut veterans. Riders will challenge themselves with one of our route options while raising important funds for the Connecticut Veterans Legal Center (CVLC). After The RIDE, join us for a BBQ at the Point72 headquarters.
