Veterans from all across the nation will be riding through Killeen on Tuesday where they will continue onto post the next day.

Ride 2 Recovery is a nonprofit organization that helps injured veterans improve their health and wellness through individual and group cycling.

More than 200 injured veterans and their supporters set off Sunday on the United Healthcare Ride 2 Recovery Texas Challenge, a seven-day, 490-mile rehabilitative ride from Houston to Arlington, concluding at AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys.

The group will arrive  from Florence Tuesday around 3 p.m. at the Shiloh Inn and Suites in Killeen.

On Wednesday, the group will depart at 8:45 a.m. and ride 66 miles to Waco. The cyclists will arrive on Fort Hood around 9 a.m. and will briefly stop at  III Corps Headquarters for a ceremony at 9:30 a.m.

They will be leaving post around 10 a.m. on Battalion Avenue.
