KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Coming back from tours of duty overseas can be tough on soldiers.
So a group of veterans are riding their bikes through Kansas City, letting the community know how to help.
The Long Road Home Project is a 4,200 mile trek across 12 states.
They ride at least 70 miles a day and two paralyzed vets ride their hand cycles.
"Coming back home and transitioning back to civilian life is very difficult and these five veterans have really taken a risk on themselves and are overcoming incredible obstacles to do this. It's quit an inspiration to watch them. It's not without its hardships. We ride about 70 miles a day. It's been very inspirational," said executive director Casey Miller.
While in Kansas City, they'll stop by the World War I Museum and get back on the road Tuesday.
