On the 12th of June, Nicky Slater, Andrew Cooke and Robert Taylor embarked on a 300mile, three-day cycle ride in support of the National Autistic Society who support 650,000 people in the UK and their families.
Not only was this a challenging distance but it also incorporates 19,000ft of climbing from London to Padstow, the equivalent height of Kilimanjaro!
The National Autistic Society are also not finding it easy to get support these days, despite the better economic outlook, especially since more people are now being diagnosed with Autistic Spectrum Disorders. The purpose of the ride is to raise awareness of and funds for autism; a lifelong developmental disability that affects how a person communicates with, and relates to, other people and the world around them. It is a spectrum condition, which means that, while all people with autism share certain areas of difficulty, their condition will affect them in different ways. Asperger's Syndrome and pathological demand avoidance are forms of autism. As well as sitting on the Commercial Board of the Charity, Robert's son Alexander has Autism and NAS have been invaluable in their tireless support.
