Former Pres. Bush hosts bike ride for military combat veterans
CRAWFORD, TX -- Former President George W. Bush is hosting the second day of a 100-kilometer mountain bike ride at his Central Texas ranch for military members wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Riders were back on the trail Friday morning, with the event scheduled to conclude Saturday.
This is the third year for Bush to host the Warrior 100K. Last year the ride was held at Palo Duro Canyon State Park, with the previous year's ride in the Big Bend region of West Texas.
Fifteen wounded veterans of combat in Iraq and Afghanistan are participating in the ride, which is part of the George W. Bush Institute's Military Service Initiative. The institute is part of the George W. Bush Presidential Center at Southern Methodist University in Dallas.
