The 20 disabled veterans are riding in the first ever Sea to Shining Sea ride across America. Their mission is to honor the courage of our servicemen and women and to change perceptions of athletes.
They plan to ride more than 4,000 miles in 63 days.
The ride kicked off in San Francisco and ends in Virginia Beach on July 24.
Many of the veterans participating were injured in Afghanistan and Iraq, but feel it is important to participate in this event.
"Everyone here has given so much to the country. Each person here represents who knows how many thousands of veterans behind them so it's just a great cause," Retired U.S. Air Force Captain Kevin Sullivan said.
During their visit to Colorado, the cyclists got a special recognition at Coors Field before the Rockies against the Brewers.
State Farm is encouraging the community to come out and show support for the riders as they make their way across the country.
For every person who signs the traveling banner State Farm says it will donate $1 up to 100,000 to help install accessibility ramps, special kitchen and bathroom fixtures in Habitat for Humanity homes.
Veterans and their families will be given priority to those homes.
