On May 28-July 28, 2012 a group of disabled veterans from America’s military rode bicycles, hand cycles and recumbent cycles from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic Ocean.

Managed by the leading not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, World T.E.A.M., the 2012 Sea to Shining Sea ride honored the courage of our military and the strength of the American spirit. Since the majority of the participants are disabled, the ride provided a dramatic example that disabled Americans can lead productive lives and accomplish remarkable athletic feats.


Participating veterans of World T.E.A.M.'s Sea to Shining Sea cross-country bicycle and hand cycle rides live with disabilities ranging from loss of limbs to blindness to Post Traumatic Stress. These veterans served America in wars from Afghanistan and Iraq to Bosnia to Vietnam.

Their participation serves as an inspiration to other disabled persons nationally, as well as inspiring the able-bodied to overcome obstacles and challenges in their lives.

At many cities and communities that the rides passed through, community and media events were held to promote the ride and the riders, allowing the public to meet the team. The riders stopped at selected military bases along the way, as well as connected with local communities of disabled persons in towns and cities.

Please join us in our 2012 and 2010 cross-country journeys through this website. Future cross-country rides are planned.
