Supergood bikers for Autism
Is a community-based group with the aim to raise money for charities or provide disability equipment to those that require some support.
We raise money through the rides or by selling apparel kindly supplied to us as donation.
All monies raised are donated to the charities listed above with the addition of a one-off purchase once a year to provide a lucky few with a gift that supports them and their support needs be it a cuddly toy or game.
I started these ride out's as I wanted to ride for my 2 sons, my youngest has a chromosome deletion and is Autistic with Situational mutism, but I also wanted to meet other parents and kids who were going through similar things. It is nice to talk to other parents around social needs & support needs for our kids or young adults, how hard it is to find
I could not find a charity ride in the UK for Autism awareness so I thought I would start one myself, with the aid of some fabulous people I started the first SUPERGOOD ride in 2017, originally to the ace cafe with a supergroup of 15 people. We are now 5 rides strong with around 250 bikes at each of the 5 rides rasing around 10k per year for the National Autistic society & the Wave project UK.
My motorcycle is my opportunity to de-stress to have some freedom to think, sometimes I ride on my own, sometimes to work but often with my sons.
So come and ride with me and enjoy a cruise out with some great people.
thanks for your support
LONDON RIDE LEAD 2021
I'm a proud Dad of four kids two boys & two girls, my eldest boy and youngest girl are both Autistic, our days are by no means like a average family but I wouldn't change it for the world.
Our family trips out can be challenging but we try to make the most of them unfortunately on some occasions we are faced with negativity by some people that don't understand our family, this can sometimes be upsetting since just because our boy and girl don't have a physical disability they can presume they are just naughty children.
our children sometimes struggle massively with anxieties and can become very overwhelmed in certain situations. As parents we are both extremely proud of all our children and how they support each other on a day to day basis.
the bike is to promote Autism Awareness, to get people talking about Autism, what needs are required for the future for our children to succeed as adults & to have fulfilling life's.
The bike number 12 is the year of my boys birthday and also the day of my daughters birthday, the jigsaw is a well known symbol for Autism
. . . It’s part of a unit. place each puzzle piece to create a Unity, a coming Together. Many pieces as one.
