Bo Jackson's Annual Bike for Charity Event Continues

Bo Jackson

Bo Jackson is beginning his third annual charity bike ride from a city he knows well: Auburn. Organizers say this year's "Bo Bikes Bama" trek will begin on the Auburn University campus on April 19, the same day as the Tigers' A-Day spring football game. Participants can ride for either 22 or 62 miles, and money from registration fees and other fundraising goes to support the Governor's Emergency Relief Fund. The Heisman Trophy winner from Auburn started the bicycle rides after the deadly tornado outbreak of April 27, 2011.

Registration Open for 2nd 'Bo Bikes Bama' Ride

Heisman Trophy Winner Bo Jackson will hold a charity bicycle ride for survivors of the April 27, 2011 storms. He hopes to raise $1million.

Athletic legend Bo Jackson is planning a second charity bicycle ride to benefit victims of the 2011 tornado outbreak in Alabama.

Registration is now open for "Bo Bikes Bama 2," which will be held April 27.

Last year's five-day ride crossed north Alabama. This year's ride will be one day, with 60-mile and 20-mile legs.

The ride will begin in the Walker County town of Cordova. Four people died there and residents are still trying to rebuild from a pair of twisters that hit the city.
