Ride the range
Bike ride challenge to benefit the Women Veterans Empowerment Fund
The funds raised will be used to enhance the quality of lives of our women Veterans. These women gave us the gift of freedom while serving and have contributed deeply to the fabric of our communities across this great nation. Keith Geis, cyclist and organizer of Ride the Range, is dedicated to raising funds in support of our women Veterans. These funds will support empowerment programs for women Veterans, administered through the Wyoming Women’s Foundation.
This bicycle challenge will be an opportunity for cyclists to draw on inspiration deep within and push themselves past their limits. Endurance, mental, and emotional limits will be put to the test. The challenge pays respect to women Veterans who pushed past even more extreme limits and have endured things that most of us could not comprehend.
From the Riders: “Please join us in leaving the world a better place than we found it.“
Those that have the will to give, can truly make our world a better place. Often, life provides opportunities to respond to the needs of others. Ride The Range allows us to engage in a meaningful event designed to make a difference in the lives of women veterans. These women put their lives in harm’s way so that we may enjoy the freedoms of today.
The funds raised will be used to enhance the quality of lives of our women veterans by supporting them through a scholarship fund from the Wyoming Women’s Foundation. This foundation focuses on empowering women to achieve economic self-sufficiency and facilitating community support of each other.
As a supporter and contributing cyclist, I encourage you to reflect on the freedoms we enjoy in this great country. And I’d like to invite you to become engaged in a meaningful way as you support this event.
A donation of any amount would be greatly appreciated. We look forward to your response in helping our women veterans.

The original Ride the Range organizer, Keith Geis, is coming up on 70 years of life, and he has decided to pass the torch to his grandchildren. After 14 years and thousands of miles of bettering the world, the Holts are continuing Keith’s vision of supporting women veterans. The riders will take on Utah again, but this time, through the Mighty 5 National Parks. The towering hoodoos of Bryce Canyon, the dazzling cliffs of Zion, and the majestic arches of Moab are just the beginning. They will ride over 550 miles through some of our nation’s most unique landscapes!
