CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A group of eight wounded U.S. veterans will be stopping in Concord, the first stop on a 2,000-mile motorcycle ride from Canada to Florida.

The Road Warrior Ride is set to start from Valcourt, Quebec, on Friday. The eight riders are expected in Concord for a welcome rally between 5 and 6 p.m.

The ride, organized by the Road Warrior Foundation, is a way for veterans to share experiences and regain the freedom and independence some lost when they were injured in war.

The riders, some of whom lost limbs, will be aboard specially outfitted, three-wheeled Can-Am Spyder roadsters.

After Concord, the group will make stops in New York, Pennsylvania, Walter Reed Medical Center, Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia and, finally, Key West, Florida.
