    Any familes here with children on the autism spectrum?

    My 10 year old has autism, he learned to ride bike 2 wks ago and is loving it. I am so proud of him. He's loving the bike, and adding updgrades. Its awesome to give him some freedom on the bike, and I am in the process of building my wife a new bike too so we all can ride together off road! Happy DAYS!

    Not exactly kid related, but worth noting that one of the top professional cyclocross racers (former Belgian national champion) Kevin Pauwels is known for being on the autism spectrum;

    My son races BMX with a couple of kids who are on the spectrum. Their sense of focus really helps in this sport.
