Let's Ride

Classic Title


VeloVets has been helping our Veterans experience the thrill of being a part of something greater. Through teamwork, strength and community, VeloVets aids in an experience that leads to  a more active life through cycling while improving overall quality of life.


All are welcome, regardless of ability, to join us at our Tuesday ride. Our Tuesday rides have expanded so much, and we are welcoming so many more. We believe everyone can experience the joy that comes from pedaling or handling (the use of hand-cycle) themselves through the air and breaking a sweat (or not!) while spending time with friends, their community, and family. We feel that all of this contributes to a feeling of well-being and success.

VeloVets is a 100% volunteer operated  501(c)(3) organization that provides for disabled veterans in Tucson, AZ and surrounding communities.
