------------------

 

Sea to Shining Sea (S2SS) 2010 was a 4,000-mile bicycle ride across the United States by a team of patriotic Americans.

 

The group was comprised mostly of veterans disabled in war, but also included able-bodied supporters. S2SS was hosted by World T.E.A.M. Sports, a leading nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, to honor the courage of our military and the strength of the American spirit.

 

This ride provided dramatic proof that disabled Americans can lead productive lives and accomplish feats that are mere dreams for ordinary people. National media covered the ride and a full-length documentary, "Two Shining Seas" was released in 202. All profits will go to other athletic events World T.E.A.M. Sports runs for disabled Americans and to Soldiers’ Angels, a leading support organization for United States service personnel.

 

A core group of 18 cyclists rode the entire distance and included injured military and a few able-bodied cyclists. In addition, there were be stage rides across key route areas during which other disabled and able-bodied riders will be encouraged to join to show support for the ride.
