Bo Bikes Bama 2021

A message from Bo…

Each year, we come together, remember lives that were tragically lost on April 27, 2011, and ride in solidarity to ensure we never see such loss of life from tornadoes ever again.

2021 will be the 10th anniversary of the 2011 tornadoes and the 10th year of Bo Bikes Bama. Over the years, we have raised more than $2 million for the Alabama Governor’s Emergency Relief Fund, which has funded many relief projects and constructed 68 safe rooms, among other disaster preparedness resources. Together, we have saved and repaired lives.

Bo and the Bo Bikes Bama team have had countless discussions about how we can do the most good for the cause while protecting our communities and our health in 2021. With these top priorities in mind, we decided we cannot reasonably hold Bo Bikes Bama in 2021 as we know and love it. We know you are sad about this—we assure you that Bo and our team are too. But we believe this is the right decision so that we can continue doing our part to put an end to this pandemic.

So, while we won’t be riding together in-person, Bo and the team of producing partners and our incredible staff have come up with some great ways that we can still ride, connect, and do the most good in 2021.

Take a look below at what we currently have planned to honor this important anniversary.

Bo Bikes Bama From Home

We hope that you will join us in honoring the 10th anniversary of the 2011 tornadoes by riding from home. All registered Bo Bikes Bama From Home riders will receive a t-shirt, commemorative bib number, commemorative bike plate, wristband, and sticker in the mail. Additionally, registrants will have the exclusive opportunity to purchase the 2021 Bo Bikes Bama cycling jersey, cycling cap, and cycling socks.

Bo Bikes Zwift

We are excited to partner again with Zwift to bring you Bo Bikes Zwift! Join Bo for two virtual rides on the Zwift platform as you get ready for Bo Bikes Bama From Home. Bo will lead both hour-long virtual rides and answer some of your questions along the way!

Dates:
Wednesday, January 20th, 5pm CST
Saturday, April 10th, 10am CST

VIP Experience

Bo will host an exclusive Bo Bikes Bama VIP Experience in and around Auburn in 2021. The VIP Experience will be open to 10 individuals who will spend a fun, socially-distanced, private day with Bo. This one-of-a-kind experience will include a 20-mile ride, lunch, a unique experience at Jordan-Hare Stadium, and more.

FUNDRAISE FOR THE CAUSE

This year, our collective fundraising effort will be especially important to continue the great work that Bo Bikes Bama has accomplished through the Alabama Governor’s Emergency Relief Fund. We hope that the Bo Bikes Bama community will come together in a big way this year to help raise funds for the cause, despite not being able to gather for an in-person ride.

We invite you to create a personalized fundraising page. Zwift will be matching funds raised dollar for dollar up to $10,000. AND, we will be offering some incredible prizes.
