Bo Bikes Bama again—Auburn legend gearing for another fundraising ride for tornado relief, plans to make it annual event

Bo Jackson, Lance Armstrong, Picabo Street and Ken Griffey Jr. pose for a photo during the first Bo Bikes Bama even in 2012. We assume Lance Armstrong will sit this year out.

The greatest athlete of all time is fast becoming one of the greatest humanitarians of our generation.

Bo Jackson has officially set a date for Bo Bikes Bama 2. This time taking his solo charity bike ride through Cordova, one of the towns hardest hit by the tornadoes that tore across Alabama in April 2011

From BoBikesBama.com:

On Saturday, April 27th, 2013, two-sport legend, Bo Jackson and hundreds of cyclists from across the country will pledge to ride 20 or 60 miles through tornado ravished Cordova, Alabama to help with tornado recovery efforts still needed two years after the deadly tornado outbreak. With a goal of $1 million dollars, all money will go to the Governor’s Emergency Relief Fund to aid all who have exhausted other relief sources.

Last year’s ride raised over $600,000.

Last week, Jackson told Kevin Scarbinsky he planned to make Bo Bikes Bama an annual event.

Now where’s that Tour de France thing?
