Motorcycle ride builds cohesion and applies the basics

Motorcyclists check their bikes and check over their personal protective equipment before taking part in the United States Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School Motorcycle Safety and Mentorship Ride on Oct., 25. Approximately five to seven small groups consisting of four to seven riders, experienced and novice, traveled from Fort Bragg to Company D, 1st Battalion 252D Combined Arms Battalion, North Carolina Army National Guard, in Sanford. The designated route allowed riders to apply lessons learned from the basic riders course to the open road build, cohesion and learn from the more experienced riders. (U.S. Army Photo by: Staff Sgt.
