What is Ride for autism?
Ride for autism is a virtual event that challenges you (as an individual, with your family or in a team) to ride as many kilometres as you can for one day. This year’s event is taking place from Sunday 22 September. We encourage anyone and everyone to sign up, get active and raise funds to support people on the autism spectrum! It's easy to get involved:
- Click the 'Register' button above
- Once you have completed your registration, personalise your fundraising page
- Share your page with your family, friends and colleagues
- Start training!
How do I register?
Click the 'Register' button at the top of the page and complete the registration form. One of our Riding Buddies will then get in touch to support you in the lead up to the event!
Are there any costs to register?
The Ride challenge is free! There are no registration costs, but we encourage everyone to make the first donation to their fundraising page. This helps to kickstart your fundraising efforts and motivates others to start supporting you.
What will I get when I sign up?
If you reach $500 in fundraising we will give you a free Ride for autism cycling shirt.
What are the benefits of getting involved in Ride for autism?
Aside from challenging yourself (and your friends, family or colleagues), getting active and having fun…by taking part in the Ride for autism and fundraising you will raise vital funds for Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect) while creating understanding and acceptance for children and adults on the autism spectrum and their families.
How do I create or join a team?
Getting active is much more fun when you do it with others! Motivate friends, family or colleagues to take on the Ride for autism challenge with you. After you register, just click ‘Create team’ (and let others know the name) or search and join an existing team.
Do I have to ride on 22nd September?
The 22nd September is our official ride day, but you can choose to ride any day that suits you! Our Riding Buddies will still be there to cheer you on.
Where do I ride?
There’s no set event or location for the Ride for autism. That means you can ride anywhere, at any time, in any place – whatever takes your fancy. Just remember to be careful, stay hydrated and have fun along the way!
How do I log my kilometres?
To add to our virtual map around the globe of 40,000 kilometres you have two options:
- Sync your riding app – download Strava or mapmyride and link your ride automatically to your page!
- Enter on your page – On your fundraising page click on the My Fitness Activity tab to set your kilometre target and update and post your kilometres manually.
