On August 4, the second annual ATV Ride for Autism will take place starting and ending in Roxbury. Last year’s ride was hosted by the Moose Alley ATV Riders of Bingham/Solon. This year it is hosted by the Roxbury ATV Riders. The theme of this year’s ride is, “Allies for Autism” with the ride consisting of leaving the ATV Park and Ride in Roxbury on route 120 at 9 a.m. The group will travel up to the wind towers in Roxbury. After a visit to the towers the ride will continue to Coos Canyon and then on to the Mexico Recreation Park where there will be a luncheon and time to swim and play.
There may be some surprises at the Recreation Park. Once they have wrapped it up at the park and if time permitting they will travel to, Angel Falls and Devil’s Den and then return to the Roxbury Park and Ride to finish off the ride. The event is the brain child of Ed Barrett (Lisbon Hard Core Riders ATV Club). He has a friend who has a son with autism and the son loves the outdoors and traveling on an ATV. All donations and proceeds raised go to support Maine Autism Awareness. For more information, contact Michael Worthley with the Roxbury ATV Riders at 418-0790 (email@example.com).
