AUBURN, Ala. – Bo Jackson announced the date of the 13th annual Bo Bikes Bama to be held on the 13th anniversary of the 2011 tornadoes – Saturday, April 27, 2024, in Auburn. Bo Bikes Bama raises money for disaster recovery and preparedness in Jackson’s home state of Alabama.

“Each year, I ride with people from all over the country to remember the lives lost on April 27, 2011, and in other disasters since,” said Jackson. “The money we raise each year supports lifesaving and life restoring work throughout the state to help communities in their greatest time of need. I look forward to riding on the thirteenth anniversary of the 2011 tornadoes on honoring the precious lives lost.”

 Bo Bikes Bama registration is open now through April 7, 2024, at bobikesbama.com. The cost to participate in 2024 is $100 for a 60-mile ride and $75 for a 20-mile ride.
