Riders Cover 29 Miles on Day 2 of W100 at Palo Duro Canyon State Park
Former President George W. Bush again led the charge on Day 2 of the second-annual W100 Wounded Warrior mountain bike ride, which covered 29 miles of scenic and winding mountain bike trails at Palo Duro Canyon State Park in the Texas Panhandle. Saturday’s conclusion of the ride is set to go an additional 14 miles for the former Chief Executive and the 20 U.S. servicemen and women who were wounded during battles in Iraq and Afghanistan.
With a break from Thursday’s triple-digit heat, Mr. Bush also paused for a brief press conference early Friday afternoon.
“Palo Duro Canyon is a spectacular place. To be here with these people who have sacrificed so much, and being out biking with them while the sun is coming up on the beautiful scenery in the canyon—well, I think it’s one of the most unique and special moments in my adult life,” he said.
