Barb Springer’s passions led her to Ride 2 Recovery (R2R). She was a marathon runner, was the head of multiple military physical service centers and served for 24 years in the U.S. Army. When nearing her retirement, the founder of R2R approached her at the Warrior Games and asked if she would work for the R2R program. And although she wasn’t a cyclist and was still on active duty, she said “yes.” She finished her service on June 30, 2011 and started her new job with R2R on August 1. She hasn’t looked back since.
