You may remember not long ago, DORC hosted a social ride and BBQ for Veterans Health Week.
As things turn out it was pretty popular, with some riders having since become DORC members, completely hooked on Mountain Biking.
Leon Riordan is a veteran and came along to a social ride for veterans put on by mountain biking club the Darwin Off-Road Cyclists (DORC) in July.
He’s since become totally hooked.
“Anyone can have a go at mountain biking,” says Leon. “My mental capacity changes when I ride. I absolutely love it. To have something, a community, outside of work is fantastic.”
This is the positive power of grassroots community engagement, and our partnership with Veteran Sport Australia helping to build better communities.
