Auburn sports legend Bo Jackson will be doing Bo Bikes Bama again this weekend, around Auburn! Bo Bikes Bama has become an annual bike ride to raise money for the Governor’s Emergency Relief Fund which has repaired hundreds of homes and built 27 community storm shelters since the April 27, 2011 tornadoes. The fund also provides crucial disaster preparedness and emergency management resources for the state of Alabama. This weekend, there will be a charity auction, a 22-mile bike ride, and a 62-mile bike ride, and did I mention that on the same day is the Auburn Tigers A-Day game!
On Friday April 18th, the Bo Bikes Bama Silent Auction takes place at the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art from 6-9 pm. Join legend Bo Jackson for a silent auction event the evening before the third annual Bo Bikes Bama charity bike ride in Auburn Alabama. Enjoy hors d’ oeuvres, beer and wine while browsing a silent auction featuring signed memorabilia from athletes and entertainers. All proceeds benefit the Governor’s Emergency Relief Fund, which has repaired hundreds of homes and built 27 community storm shelters since the April 27, 2011 tornadoes. Tickets, donations and purchases are tax deductible and help prepare the state of Alabama for future natural disasters.
On Saturday morning, Bo Bikes Bama takes off for a bike ride around the plains. This year, the third annual Bo Bikes Bama ride will take place in Auburn Alabama on A-Day, Saturday April 19th. Participating riders can choose either a 62-mile or 22-mile route. Both routes will take riders through the campus of Auburn University, while the 62-mile route will carry riders through Tuskegee and neighboring Macon County. Here is the map of the routes below. The darker color route is the shorter route while the lighter color is the longer route!
The ride will begin and end at the The Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art. The 62-mile route begins at 7 am while the 22-mile route begins at 9:30 am. All riders will get a jersey number, t-shirt, light snacks and water at the rest stops, and a meal at the end of the ride. Of course, the day is topped off by the Auburn Tigers A-Day game at Jordan Hare Stadium on Saturday April 19th at 2 pm. Tickets are $5 each. Of course, if you can not make it to Auburn for Bo Bikes Bama or for the A-Day game, you could always watch the A-Day game live on ESPN!
