We decided to throw together a few tidbits of history from the first inaugural Evan’s Ride for Autism on Sunday, May 17th, 2009.

  • About 40 cyclists participated
  • The ride began at the Smithville Leisureplex. It now starts and finishes at Sheldrick Transport
  • Evan was 13 yrs old. He is now 22 yrs old!
  • The ride was 20 km. It is now 11 km with the option of doing the route twice for a 22 km ride through the back roads of Smithville with escort.
  • $8,900 was raised to go towards programming and services for Niagara families dealing with autism.
  • Over the 9 yrs, Evan’s Ride has raised $130,000 to support families living with Autism!
  • There was a video made of the first Evan’s Ride. There are riders that have been riding every year with Evan and will be out again for this special 10th anniversary!
