PENROSE, Colo.  —  A local wounded warrior hopes to one day get back on the open road. Now, southern Colorado motorcyclists are coming together to help him build a modified trike.

Sunday afternoon, several bikers gathered at the VFW Post in Penrose for the 9-11 Freedom Ride for the Trike.

On September 11, 2006, retired U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Dennis Cline lost his arm when he and his team were ambushed while on a patrol in Afghanistan.

While his life has changed, he still loves the same things. He said friend reminded him of an old hobby.

“He showed me his Harley and he saw me light up, so he came to the VFW here to ask them if they would help try to get a trike built for me,” Cline said.

A GoFundMe campaign has been set up to help get the modified trike built.
