George W. Bush kicks off annual bike ride with wounded veterans

Former President George W. Bush kicked off his annual W100K bike ride Thursday, with 16 post-9-11 veterans logging 12 miles at Prairie Chapel Ranch in Crawford, Tex.

The Bush Center website explains the event:

Each spring, approximately 20 servicemen and women wounded in the global war on terror join President George W. Bush for a 100-kilometer mountain bike ride. Part of the Bush Institute’s Military Service Initiative, the W100K highlights the bravery and sacrifice of warriors and recognizes organizations that support America’s heroes.

CNN’s Jake Tapper was on hand for the festivities, tweeting:  

 

The race continues through the weekend.
