What Is The Ride For Autism?
The Ride for Autism is a one-day charity bicycle tour designed to raise funds for Autism New Jersey and also to raise community awareness about autism. It is also an opportunity for socialization either as a participant or as a volunteer. This year’s Ride For Autism takes place on June 8.
The ride is open to all levels of cyclists, from beginner to serious. Participants choose from five routes ranging in length from 10 to 100 miles, designed by the Jersey Shore Touring Society bicycle club. Rest stops and SAG support are provided on all routes.
A vendor expo, one mile kids ride and kids activities take place through out the day. A celebratory lunch takes place immediately following the ride.
Thanks to all our riders, volunteers, donors and sponsors for a wonderful ride for 2012! Over 530 riders turned out at Brookdale Community College on June 9, 2012 to raise awareness about autism and to raise funds for Autism NJ. Here is a slideshow of the day, as captured by our wonderful volunteer Maryanne Peters, who generously donated hours of her time.
