Who wants to ride 50 miles with Bo Jackson? (And possibly Lance Armstrong!)*
Bo — who apparently knows biking — is cycling 300 miles across our state to raise money for tornado relief in his “Bo Bikes Bama” campaign. Anyone who makes a donation at Bo’s site will be entered in a drawing to ride 50 miles with Bo on April 26, from Cullman to Jasper. Anyone can pay $200 to for a chance to ride a 50-mile segment with Bo, but Southern Living’s parent company donated $1000 and agreed to give MC3 one of its spots for the local bike community. (Note: This is not a raffle – no money enters our hands. Just a third-party Swag Fairy reward to folks who donate to a good cause.) All proceeds benefit the Alabama Governor’s Emergency Relief Fund.
How to win a ride with Bo:
1. Click here and make a donation to his site. Suggested donation is $20 or more.
2. Email your confirmation/receipt of donation to kimhcross (at) gmail (dot) com by midnight on April 21.
3. Cross fingers. We will draw a winner randomly and announce here on Monday, April 23.
* Lance is rumored to be joining Bo at some point! Other celebrities slated to participate are Cam Newton, Picabo Street, Ken Griffey, Jr., Desmond Howard, Demeco Ryans, and Scottie Pippen.
** Kim will be riding with Bo on Friday and Saturday, April 27-28. Follow @KimhCross and @RideMC3 for live Twitter updates!
