🕐 1 min read

CRAWFORD, Texas (AP) — Former President George W. Bush is holding his annual mountain bike ride for U.S. military members wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan.

This year’s three-day ride is being held at Bush’s Crawford ranch in Central Texas. Bush has planned a news conference on Friday, the second day of the Warrior 100K, a 100-kilometer ride.

Sixteen current and retired members of the military are taking part in the ride.

This is the fourth year that Bush has hosted the event.

The race is part of the Military Service Initiative at the George W. Bush Institute. The institute is housed at the George W. Bush Presidential Center on the campus of Southern Methodist University in Dallas. The center, which opened a year ago, also includes Bush’s presidential library and museum.
