PRLog - Oct. 24, 2012 - Local Las Vegas triathlon club, Xtreme Average, a group founded by Navy veterans to support military aid organizations, will be fielding a team at the Ride 2 Recovery Honor Ride on Saturday, November 10, 2012 and currently has riders registered from both the local community as well as areas such as Lemoore, CA and Reno, NV.

Ride 2 Recovery, a national non-profit, benefits military mental and physical rehabilitation programs that feature cycling as the core activity.  Funds raised by events, such as the Honor Ride Las Vegas, support the participation of injured veterans including the purchase of bikes, helmets and other equipment.  Bikes are often custom-fitted to the physical needs of each rider.

The Honor Ride Las Vegas, in direct support of Ride 2 Recovery, will benefit injured veterans’ physical and mental rehabilitation. This event is a self-paced, non-competitive ride.  Injured veterans and the general public can ride one of three distances - 13, 40 or 84 miles on Saturday, November 10.  All three begin and end at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. The 40- and 84-mile routes will both include a lap at the Las Vegas Speedway and the longer route will bring cyclists to Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam.

"Xtreme Average was founded by Navy retirees to provide the type of athletic club where everyone could participate and make positive changes in their life," says Ed Mueller, co-founder of the group and a 20-year Navy veteran, "In our goal as a club to do what we could to support military organizations, Ride 2 Recovery was the natural first choice, and we're extremely proud to be doing our part to support this organization."

Currently, special guests will include; Rules of Engagement star, Patrick Warburton, and NBC News Anchor Jim Snyder.
