Twenty U.S. servicemen and women wounded in Iraq or Afghanistan are scheduled to join President George W. Bush for a 100 kilometer mountain bike ride on April 26-28 in scenic Palo Duro Canyon State Park.

The three-day Warrior 100K bike ride not only highlights the bravery and sacrifice of soldiers wounded in the global war on terror, but also provides a high-profile opportunity for disabled veterans from four leading military support programs to enjoy an extended weekend of riding and comradery with their former commander-in-chief.

aaThis marks the second W100 bike ride held in a Texas state park, as Bush—who is an avid and skilled mountain biker who frequently rode at his Texas ranch and at Camp David during his two-term presidency—hosted the first ever W100 last year at Big Bend Ranch State Park in far Southwest Texas.
