ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) President Obama greeted participants of the Wounded Warrior Project's Soldier Ride at the White House on Thursday (April 17). The annual bike ride is in its seventh year. Veterans will cycle nearly 60 miles over four days. "Biking nearly 60 milies in three days would be a challenge for anybody, but for all of you this is a lot more than a bike ride. This is a mark of how far you've come," said Obama to a crowd gathered on the White House lawn. "Many of you are recovering from devastating injuries. Some of you have had to learn the basics all over again - how to stand again, how to walk again, how to run again. And now you're here today, because that's what Soldier's Ride is all about - seeing each other through the finish line," he added. After the opening remarks, Obama launched the bike ride from the White House. Vice-President Joe Biden and the Secretary of Veterans Affairs, Eric Shinseki, were also in attendance. = Obama cheers participants of the Wounded Warrior Soldier Ride President Obama and Vice-President Biden honor the seventh annual Wounded Warrior Project's Soldier Ride at the White House.
