2019 Texas Autism Bike Ride and Fun Run | 4•7•19

About 2019 Texas Autism Bike Ride and Fun Run | 4•7•19

This is our 11th Annual event! The ride begins and ends at Georgetown High School in Georgetown, TX, and benefits the Autism Society of Texas. All proceeds are used to fund programs, promote education and awareness, and provide access to resources for families and adults living with autism in Texas.

Registration is $50 for all bike ride distances for each participant. The Fun Run/Walk is $25 for the first person and $10 for additional family members for the Fun Run/Walk. The registration fee includes an event T-shirt* as well as lunch and snacks and drinks at multiple rest stops along the routes. It also includes access to the Resource Fair, bounce houses, as well as games and activities!

If you can't make it out to the ride/run then you can also register as a fundraiser for free.

ROUTES are of approximately 9, 24, and 42, and 68 miles with START & FINISH at Georgetown High School. All routes pedal through moderately flat terrain interspersed with rolling hills on the eastern side of Williamson County. Riders must obey all traffic laws. Helmets must be worn. Rest stops will be available throughout the ride. SAG vehicles will be patrolling the routes to help with mechanical troubles and to pick up riders with any problems. Please be prepared to handle your own flats and minor problems. Since the roads are not closed, all bike rides are recommended for older elementary aged children, or tweens/teens who are riding with an adult 18+.

RIDE STARTS AT 7:30 am with no riders leaving after 9:00 am. All riders must finish by 2:00 pm, so choose a route that gives you plenty of time to finish.

The 5K Fun Run/Walk at Georgetown High School is suitable for younger children who want to bike, walk, or run. Strollers welcome! The 5K Fun Run/Walk will be a different course this year, with 5 laps around Georgetown High School grounds at the resource fair area in order to avoid parking lots.

The walk and fun run will begin at 10:00 am and the post-event party will follow. See the full event schedule for more details.

Onsite registration will be available the day of the event, but we suggest you register in advance to save time, guarantee your t-shirt size, and help us better plan for the event! Thank you!
