The Village of Questa was honored to welcome the Tour of Honor Riders to the town over the Memorial Holiday weekend. The village put up a banner at the Veterans Memorial Park and also added a welcome message to the LED marquee in town, ensuring the riders got a warm welcome to Questa.

The Tour of Honor Riders was co-founded by Steve and Dave Brooks, their wives, and Michael Kneebone. The movement was spurred in honor of the September 11 attacks on the U.S.

The Tour of Honor Riders are individual motorcycle riders or groups of riders who visit and pay tribute to the fallen veterans and first responders who have served our country nobly and paid the ultimate sacrifice for our beloved country.

The self-directed Tour of Honor has grown to over 1,000 riders and many of these riders have posted over 40,000 photos on social media. Communities across the country place welcome banners at veterans parks and central locations of the community. Many Tour of Honor Riders raise money for veterans and first responder charities.

If you see motorcycle riders visiting Questa’s Veterans Memorial Park throughout the summer and fall, they could be Tour of Honor Riders. Stop by, introduce yourself, say hello and thank them for all they do! If you’d like to visit the Tour of Honor Riders website, you can go to https://www.tourofhonor.com.
