No, but if you find one pass along the info to us. I work with teenagers with ASD and would love to do a ride benefiting research.

I have spoken to Autism Speaks about this. They are considering, but need volunteers to get this setup from what I gathered. I know they do some rides back east but nothing out here. Only the Walk.
I would love to see them or one of the other orgs our here do a ride.

This isn't explicitly autism and it's not exactly southern california, but since nobody else has come up with one, the best buddies challenge rides from Monterrey or so to Hearst castle.

It looks like an awesome ride but the fundraising minimum is on the order of $1650.

Thanks for the help so far. I will keep researching. I would really like to see a ride from Autism Speaks, but I understand the amount of work necessary to host something like that. I have an autistic niece, and would love to do a ride in her honor. She's a great kid!

They are all great!
My great nephew is autistic and I would also like to do a ride to honor him and his challenges.
