The six-day Texas Challenge, which benefits Project Hero’s injured military veteran riders, is a noncompetitive, therapeutic bike tour from San Antonio to Houston with stops throughout Central Texas. The nonprofit Project Hero helps veterans and first responders aflected by injury, post-traumatic stress disorder and brain injury achieve rehabilitation, recovery and resilience.
