For more than 100 years, Harley-Davidson has supported servicemen and women through a variety of efforts. From producing motorcycles to connecting those who served through a love of riding, to supporting organizations that assist veterans, H-D's connection to the military runs deep.
And that support continues in 2020 as H-D and the Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) once again hit the road to bring Rolling Project Odyssey® to wounded vets, which is a unique motorcycle group riding experience built on WWP's Project Odyssey mental health program. As one of WWP's marquee mental health programs, Project Odyssey aims to support veterans in their management and recovery from invisible wounds of war such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI) and other combat stress through adventure-based learning that encourages a connection with fellow veterans and nature. In Rolling Project Odyssey, motorcycle riding becomes the catalyst to accomplish the Project Odyssey program goals.
First partnering with WWP on the experience in 2015, Harley-Davidson is sponsoring additional group rides to extend the program to more veterans across the United States.
The first Rolling Project Odyssey of 2020 is scheduled March 9-13, starting and finishing in Jacksonville, Florida, the home of WWP's headquarters. The first trip will include a stop at Bike Week in Daytona, kicking off the U.S. riding season.
