AUBURN, Ala. (AP) - Bo Jackson is beginning his third annual charity bike ride from a city he knows well: Auburn.

Organizers say this year's "Bo Bikes Bama" trek will begin on the Auburn University campus on April 19, the same day as the Tigers' A-Day spring football game.

Participants can ride for either 22 or 62 miles, and money from registration fees and other fundraising goes to support the Governor's Emergency Relief Fund.

The Heisman Trophy winner from Auburn started the bicycle rides after the deadly tornado outbreak of April 27, 2011.

The rides raised more than $700,000 in the first two years to help rebuild homes and provide community storm shelters.
