Joe Coddington

with Project Hero


Joe Coddington proudly served as a US Marine from 1990-1995. As an avid cyclist before and while serving, Joe was a USMC National Cycling Champion and continued cycling at the professional level until 2008. In 2004, he founded a youth cycling nonprofit that still operates today in his hometown, Asheville, NC. Upon retiring from competitive cycling, he worked for the UnitedHealthcare Pro Cycling Team. Now a resident of Camarillo, Ca., Joe works with Ride 2 Recovery to bring his unique life experience to improve the Veteran experience on the rides and outreach to involve more communities. When asked about R2R he will tell you, “I have done a lot with bicycles. I have felt the thrill of winning and the disappointment of losing. I have seen the impact that cycling has on kids and enjoyed it all. But watching what happens to these men and women that served when R2R gets them on a bike and they rediscover life, I have no words except that this is what bikes were meant to do.”
