Information Evenings and Training Rides

Information Evenings

Whether you’re already signed up, or you are thinking about it and need a little more encouragement, join us for an evening of inspirational and informative talks about the 2024 Manchester to London cycle challenge.

Rapha founder Simon Mottram, along with Ambitious about Autism and M2L alumni will answer all your questions about training and preparation, and what to expect on the day. Whether you just want some inspiration, to learn more about the undertaking or understand how your fundraising will make a difference to autistic children and young people, please come and join us.

About autism

Autism is a lifelong developmental disability which is estimated to affect one in 100 people in the UK. However, it is likely this figure is higher. A recent study of seven million young people found that around one in 57 children in the UK are autistic.

Autism affects the way a person communicates and how they experience the world around them.

It is described as a spectrum condition because while autistic people share certain characteristics, they will be highly individual in their interests, needs and preferences.

Some autistic people live independently, but others may need additional support because of a learning disability or other health needs such as mental health or epilepsy. Autistic children and young people face enormous challenges due to a lack of understanding of their needs. Early intervention and support are critical if autistic children and young people are to be themselves and realise their ambitions.
