Trading in a suit and tie for athletic gear and a bright red bicycle, Senator Bateman addressed the crowd before cycling alongside the veterans for the first several miles of today’s trek to Philadelphia.

“I proudly support Ride 2 Recovery, an incredible organization dedicated to helping our nation’s brave veterans recover from injury and trauma through cycling,” Senator Bateman said. “Today we pedaled together to honor these heroes and show our support for the volunteers that work tirelessly to empower and inspire injured veterans on the road to recovery.”

As a longtime advocate for the nearly 429,000 veterans who call New Jersey home, Senator Bateman sponsors several pieces of legislation to provide economic opportunities and improve the welfare of veterans across the state.

These bills include legislation to extend tax benefits to veterans residing in continuing care retirement communities, and a bill to help veterans’ organizations raise funds through new streams of revenue.
