All in! Life is a team sport, we can’t do it alone! Please join us on livestream as we cross the nation, share our stories of both giving and receiving support through this tough and beautiful life. ❤️ www.TeamOneMile.com

We are raising $ for Semper Fi - a grassroots organization started by Marine souses coming to the bedsides of their partners in 2004…still managed by these women! In all this time, Semper Fi’s operating overhead costs have averaged only 6-7%! They don’t advertise! Please consider joining the team. Thank you for your support. ❤️

These fine establishments support the team’s mission either through steep discounts, supply donations, or are pretty cool themselves!

Great night of cycling for AFCT Ohio Tues at the Blue Streak Time Trial. Gary, Jack and grand daughter Etta on their tandem, and Tim rode fast... averaging 19-21 MPH on the 10 mi loop. Looking forward to next month’s race and RAGBRAI in July! ... See MoreSee Less

Is it true that you pay for all the spare tubes and tires out of your own pocket? Do you have a way we could donate funds to your Ragbrai cause? Can people also donate to a soldier's Ragbrai entrance fee? ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

Hello Charissa! Yes, we pay for spare tubes that are not donated to us. To make a donation to the team or to donate towards a rider's fees, please send email to our Director at ceo@afcycling.com. Thanks for the support!

Congratulations on completion of RAGBRAI. The VFW Posts of the central Shenandoah Valley in Virginia invite all the Air Force cyclists to participate in the Valley Veterans Ride for Heroes on September 11th. The Valley Veterans Ride for Heroes is more than a bicycle ride…it’s an event celebrating the beauty of the central Shenandoah Valley and the service and sacrifice of our military and its veterans. As a fundraiser supporting Boulder Crest Retreat,
participation provides support for our combat veterans, many of whom have deployed multiple times, and their families who have paid a terrific price for their service to the nation.

Amazingly, some of the scenery looks like the beauty of Iowa on a RAGBRAI route. And we have a virtual registration if you are not able to join us in Virginia.

Register for a ride that honors our veterans and the sacrifices they have made for twenty years since attacks of 9-11.

Double shout out to the Air Force Cycling Team! They truly are "The Guardian Angels of the Road." I have always admired how they are always there to help stranded cyclists along the route. Well, this year I got to experience their kindness, service, and expertise not once, but twice as I got flat tires on Days 1 and 3! What a welcome relief to see them swoop in and save the day! What a Godsend! Thank you is not enough to express my sincere gratitude! Your efforts are appreciated more than you know. Until next year....thank you so much for your service on RAGBRAI and to our country! You are unsung heroes in every sense of the word! 😎 ... See MoreSee Less
