A group of Wounded Warriors will be riding into the Coastal Bend on Veterans Day, marking the end of a seven-day bike trip from Wichita Falls, Texas.

The ride, called the Warriors on Wheels Ride 2013, includes more than 20 Iraq and Afghanistan veterans and wounded service members that are part of the Warriors on Wheels Cycling Club. Some have been burned, wounded or are wearing prosthetics, pedaling with their arms throughout the 500 mile trip.

The group of veterans was welcomed by police, EMS, firefighters, motorcyclists and students from Beeville High School Sunday at the Coastal Bend College in Beeville.

Continuing their journey, the Warriors on Wheels Cycling Club departed from Beeville at around 7:30 a.m. Monday, heading toward Corpus Christi.
