Ride for Autism 

Dozens of bikers descended on the Bangor waterfront Saturday to help raise money for kids with autism.The Ride for Autism Awareness is a 55 mile trek.The money raised will help support local families whose children live with the neurological disorder, which is said to affect one in every 150 kids.The route went from Bangor to Brewer, then Bucksport, Stockton Springs, back through Hampden and ending in Bangor at the University College of Bangor.Eric and Monique Iken are co-organizers of the event.They have three sons with autism, so the cause is close to their hearts.The ride has been held in Lincoln the past two years…this is the first time it’s been held in Bangor.
