Military Minds Inc, the driving force behind The Rolling Barrage, is excited to announce Dispatches; a 11-day, 5361 km loop adventure ride originating from Quebec City and tracing the coastal routes of the Gulf of Saint Lawrence as well as the wilds of the Trans Labrador highway and Northern Quebec! If you are the type of motorcyclist who would sometimes rather trade the ease and comfort of the blacktop for something more exciting, challenging and exclusive, then this is the ride for you!
Military Minds Inc is an active, connected membership dedicated to supporting military and first responders who cope with Operational Stress Injury and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. In 2017 MMI launched The Rolling Barrage, a coast to coast motorcycle ride to raise awareness and funds to support the veteran and FR community. 2018 saw MMI & TRB donate a portable saw mill to Rally Point Retreat [in support of their efforts to serve the veteran and FR community. In August 2019 TRB will embark on it’s 3rd journey across Canada.
Dispatches began as a solo ride around Canada in 2018; one veteran, Michael Terry, travelling over 26,000 km looking to share his story and encourage others to share theirs in the hopes of helping to end the stigma and isolation caused by OSI and PTSD. As a former Dispatch Rider himself, Michael took his venture off the beaten path and sought to carry his message to the farthest corners of the country, not to mention challenging his own riding ability and endurance.
TRB and Dispatches came together on August 19th, 2018 as both rides crossed paths in Calgary, AB. Although the encounter was short lived, the connection through purpose and vision was not. Before that day’s ride had properly begun there was already talk of what may come if Dispatches were to align with MMI/TRB; and so, here we are.
