Apply for the W100K

As part of the Bush Institute's Military Service Initiative, the W100K highlights the service, sacrifice, and resilience of our nation's warriors.

Servicemen and women wounded in the global war on terror join President George W. Bush for a 100-kilometer mountain bike ride.  For wounded warriors from America’s military, spending a weekend riding mountain bikes in the W100K offer an opportunity to meet other veterans, share meals, share life stories, and ride amazing bike trails with their former commander-in-chief.

The 2019 W100K will be held November 8 and 9.  Applications are open through July 31, 2019. 

Criteria for consideration to be selected:

  • Be wounded or injured in post-9/11 service (this includes visible and invisible wounds)
  • Be active-duty, retired, or honorably discharged
  • Be an intermediate to advanced mountain bike rider

The events amplify and draw attention to the service, sacrifice, and resilience of post-9/11 warriors and their families, particularly the issues they face in making a successful transition to civilian life.
