EVENT DESCRIPTION
Two-sport legend and Alabama native Bo Jackson is teaming up with Zwift to raise awareness and funds for the Alabama Governor’s Emergency Relief Fund.

Bo Jackson watched in shock as a series of devastating tornadoes ripped through Alabama on April 27, 2011, claiming hundreds of lives and destroying countless homes. While many sat powerless to help, Bo knew he wanted to do something special for the people back home—and that’s where the Bo Bikes Bama story began.

On the first anniversary of the storms, Bo embarked on a five-day journey across the state of Alabama, visiting many of the towns ravaged by the tornadoes. Joined by celebrity friends like Scottie Pippin, Ken Griffey, Jr., Picabo Street and Al Joyner, Bo impacted the lives of countless Alabamians who rode with him and cheered for him along the way. Bo Bikes Bama became an annual charity event in April 2013 with proceeds going to provide crucial disaster preparedness and emergency management resources for Alabama.

To date, Bo Bikes Bama has raised over $2.2 million for the Alabama Governor’s Emergency Relief Fund which has repaired over 600 homes, built 68 community storm shelters and installed 10 emergency warning sirens. Join Bo this year as he brings Bo Bikes Bama back to Zwift.
