Why Ride Far?
Autumn leaves, the lower Hudson valley, and a community coming together to change lives. That’s Wall Street Rides FAR, a glorious cycling event to benefit the Autism Science Foundation. The Wall Street community is joining together to take a stand for this important cause.
On Saturday, October 7 hundreds of riders—a mix of avid cyclists and weekend recreational riders—will venture from Saxon Woods County Park on a fully-supported journey of the scenic roads north of New York City. With a choice of three distances and challenge levels, from a 4-mile family ride to a 62-mile, hilly metric century, you’ll be supported—nurtured, really—by our volunteer crew. With rest stops every 15 miles, so magical we call them “Oases,” ample route marking, safety monitors at tricky intersections, bike techs, and sweep vans if you need them, our crew will take care of almost any need you can imagine, and a great many you never thought of. Wall Street Rides FAR is a leaf-peeping cyclist’s utopia.
Why do we work so hard to make this a great experience? Because you are supporting an incredibly important charity, the Autism Science Foundation (ASF). ASF supports funding and other assistance to scientists and organizations conducting, facilitating, publicizing and disseminating autism research. They also provide information about autism to the general public and serve to increase awareness of autism spectrum disorders and the needs of individuals and families affected by autism.
