The forecast called for rain, but it was nothing but sun and smiles at Lorenzo Alexander’s “Ride 2 Provide” charity bike ride on Saturday. Alexander and Kedric Golston hosted the event for the third year, and were joined by teammates Ryan Kerrigan, Niles Paul, Logan Paulsen, Rob Myers, as well as former Redskin Chris Wilson and the Hogettes.
And yes, Paulsen is shown wearing a light purple tutu. No, I don’t know why–but I will find out.
The event raises money for wounded veterans recovering from their injuries, as well as Alexander’s ACES foundation. Alexander was excited with the biker turnout, but really enjoyed the support of his teammates for his biggest annual event:
“It’s pretty cool to have your teammates out here supporting you,” Alexander said with a grin. ”A lot of guys have chosen to get involved and help me out, and it shows what type of men they are and what they’re all about. The local media have created a great bond over the years, and those guys have come out to support me as well.
“It goes beyond football and the Redskins on a day-to-day basis,” he added. ”We’re about relationships and building a better community.”

After his first day of 2012 workouts at Redskins Park, Lorenzo Alexander took time to give back to the D.C. sports community by supporting the Washington Capitals against the Boston Bruins.
The two teams split on the road in Boston before bringing the seven-game series to Washington for the first of two games on home ice. Alexander has been tweeting feverishly about the opening round of the NHL Playoffs, and enjoyed the game in a John Carlson jersey with his daughter, Vanessa:
Pretty cool seeing everyone rocking the red right now!—
