Former President George W. Bush will join 14 people wounded while serving in the U.S. military in Iraq and Afghanistan on a three-day mountain bike ride next week in the Big Bend region of West Texas.

Bush is hosting the Warrior 100 -- a 100 kilometer, or about 62-mile, ride -- as part of an initiative of his presidential center to highlight the work of those helping others.

Several organizations that support wounded military members and their families will be represented on the ride, which begins Monday and will take riders through mountains and desert.

The George W. Bush Presidential Center, which will include his library and an institute, is being built on the campus of Southern Methodist University in Dallas and is expected to be completed in 2013.
