HOUSTON - The Ride for Recovery is also a way of educating the community about addiction and removing some of the shame and stigma attached to the disease.

Dozens of motorcycle enthusiasts – including members of the Thin Blue Line, a law enforcement motorcycle club whose members are active duty or retired law enforcement officers from a variety of agencies and jurisdictions – are participating in this year’s ride. Last year, more than a 100 riders participated in the event.

A first of its kind in the Houston area, the Ride for Recovery has raised more than $85,000 in support of local recovery programs and operations since it began.
