Join us as we look to support one of our local Vets and RWF Alumni. SGT Wickens will become a recipient of home built by Homes for Our Troops and this kick off event will be on June 29th. If SGT Wickens name sounds familiar, that is because we helped raise funds for his home during the 2016 Spyder Gathering Event. SGT Wickens is also a Road Warrior Foundation Alumni from the 2015 ride.

Our Ryde will begin at Maitland Breakfast Club located at 745 Orienta Ave #1061, Altamonte Springs, FL 32701. Those wanting to met for Breakfast should arrive around 7:30am and everyone else should meet at 8:30am. Our ride will depart just at 8:45am and will take us out some nice secondary roads to VFW Post 4287 located at 3500 S Goldenrod Rd, Orlando, FL 32822 . Our plan is to arrive at the VFW around 9:45 as the event starts at 10am.

We have already signed the chapter up for 15 individuals, however, I would love to see as many of our members at this event to show SGT Wickens that US Spyder Ryders and the Spyder Community is still here for him.
