CRAWFORD, Texas (AP) — Former President George W. Bush says wounded U.S. military members joining him for his annual mountain bike ride “turned their circumstances into good” by displaying courage and sacrifice.

Bush spoke Friday at his Crawford ranch in Central Texas as part of the three-day Warrior 100K, a 100-kilometer ride. Sixteen current and retired members of the military wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan are participating in the ride.

This is the fourth year that Bush has hosted the event and he’ll be riding the full 100K. He holds the gathering to show appreciation for the sacrifice of veterans.

Bush said he was surrounded by “extraordinary” people who were injured after volunteering to serve the nation.

The race is part of the Military Service Initiative at the George W. Bush Institute in Dallas.
