Ride for Autism 2010

This past Sunday Todd and I participated our 1st/2nd Ride for Autism. The reason I say 1st/2nd is because we registered and paid all of our fees last year to participate and then found out Todd needed back surgery.
This year we were able to participate and it was such a great experience. The event had over 500 motorcycles that helped raise money for a cure. We hold this organization close to our hearts because both of our boys or should I say young men have been diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome which is a mild form of Autism.
Below are some pictures from the event:

Bikes were parked in front of the building, in the parking lot, on the street around the back of the building and on the street on the other side of the building:

We were in the 1st group to go out these are some of the bikes infront of us:

And some bikes behind us:

Self Portait of ME on the Bike. Too funny huh?

I came home so sore from sitting on a motorcycle for 110 miles; 85 of which was without a break, and the soreness continued for a couple of days. But you know what? I would do it again to help raise money for a cure for these kids who have to grow up with Autism.
