Former President George W. Bush had quite an active weekend, mountain biking "every single kilometer" of the third annual Warrior 100K. The former president and 14 wounded warriors rode the trails of the "Western White House," Bush's Prairie Chapel Ranch in Texas. "He led the pack and was so happy and proud to honor them," a Bush spokesperson said.

Besides biking, the Iraq and Afghanistan vets were treated to a surprise performance by country singer Pat Green, new mountain bikes from Trek and a dinner party with the Bushes.

The W100K is an annual veterans awareness project sponsored by the Bush Institute.
