COLUMBUS, Ga. -
Registration is now open for a charity bicycle ride organized by athletic legend Bo Jackson. Jackson first held the ride last year to benefit victims of the 2011 tornado outbreak in Alabama. The Bo Bikes Bama organization provided News 3 with photos by Glen Kasin from the inaugural ride, which lasted five days across north Alabama. This year's ride will be one day, with 60-mile and 20-mile legs. Four people died there and residents are still trying to rebuild from a pair of twisters that hit the city. Jackson's ride raised more than $600,000 last year. The Heisman Trophy winner is hoping to raise $1 million total. Bo Bikes Bama 2 will be held April 27.
