Mission Statement

Pedal for the Puzzle is an annual charity festival and bike ride that brings people together to raise funds and awareness for autism. By riding for the cause, we show outward support for people with autism and their families. The donations we gather from riders and non-riders alike go to nonprofit organizations committed to improving the lives of individuals with autism. One‐hundred percent of the proceeds from Pedal for the Puzzle go to New Jersey's autism community, specifically the Somerset Hills Learning Institute and Autism New Jersey. These two incredible nonprofit organizations that are dedicated to helping individuals with autism and their families.

Description

Pedal for the Puzzle is an annual charity festival and bike ride that brings people together to raise funds and awareness for autism. This all‐day family event includes three bike routes (10, 25, and 50 miles), a healthy gourmet lunch, children’s activities such as a children’s bike rodeo, a tricky tray and prize segment, music, wine tasting, delicious desserts, and more. By riding for the cause, we show outward support for people with autism and their families.

Autism represents a spectrum of neurodevelopmental disorders (ASDs) characterized by mild to severe impairment in social interaction, communication, and behavior. The condition affects 1 in 68 children nationwide and 1 in 45 children in New Jersey, which has the nation’s highest rate of autism. The causes of autism are not clear and it is not curable, but children with ASDs benefit greatly from early diagnosis and treatment.

One‐hundred percent of the proceeds from Pedal for the Puzzle go to New Jersey's autism community, specifically the Somerset Hills Learning Institute and Autism New Jersey. These two incredible nonprofit organizations that are dedicated to helping individuals with autism and their families.
