George W Bush Still Rides A Bike

Like him or not, George W Bush is a cyclist.

20 wounded servicemen and women join 65-year-old George W. Bush for a 3 day, 100 km mountain bike ride through Palo Duro Canyon south of Amarillo Texas.

The former president led these Wounded Warriors and 50 others — journalists, secret service, sponsor guests — through 13 miles of trails on what one marathon running journalist described as a “two-hour 50-minute ordeal complete with skinned legs and elbows and sore ribs.”
