Algoma Ride For Autism an awesome sight

More than 150 motorcyclists hit the highway Saturday morning in the annual Algoma Ride For Autism.

Area bikers registered and gathered at Highland Ford Saturday morning before heading north to Goulais River and Bellevue Valley. They returned to the city about 90 minutes later, to the Esquire Club for snacks and refreshments.

“It’s truly impeccable, everybody coming out to sponsor the ride,” said Gene Prusky just before the massive group headed north. “There’s a lot of families that really enjoy seeing this ride put together. There’s a lot of children, and men and women, that really need this help.”

The Algoma Ride For Autism has raised more than $100,000 over the years for The Algoma Autism Foundation.
