Trek sets up Bo Jackson for charity ride

Published March 28, 2012

WATERLOO, Wi (BRAIN) Wednesday March 28 2012 4:33 PM MT—Trek Bicycle is building five bikes for 1985 Heisman Trophy winner Bo Jackson, who is leading a ride across Alabama to raise money for victims of last year's tornados.

The Bo Bikes Bama ride will be April 24-28, from Henagar to Tuscaloosa, ending at the University of Alabama exactly a year after the area was hit by the tornados.

Also sponsored by Nike and Capital Sports and Entertainment, the ride is open to the public with all registration fees going directly to the Governor’s Relief Fund of Alabama. More information: bobikesbama.com.

Jackson's five custom Madone 6.9 SSL bikes feature the names of the over 200 Alabamans who lost their lives in the storms.
