The Dirt Therapy Project "TDTP"

Mission - “Our mission is to get the Military Community on bikes, and in the great outdoors where they can discover their own path to healing.” Bringing over 30 years of riding mountain bikes and an obsession with the dirt to our veterans.

The Dirt Therapy Project caters riders of all skill levels from beginner to advanced. While striving to inspire and help riders who have a basic MTB skill set to enjoy local trails and advance their riding through a community of talented individuals. This humble attempt to introduce veterans to bikes has grown into a national initiative, with chapters located across the United States.

TDTP loves to share their passion for riding and working to improve the lives of our nation's defenders. Promoting both the physical and mental aspect of recovery by getting veterans on bikes and providing the ideal environment to build camaraderie, allowing for an effective and reliable method of stress management. Being of service to others is as close to their heart as riding dirt and TDTP provides the opportunity to do both.
