Cafe Track Hack

Well done to all the cyclists who took part in the inaugural Cafe Track Hack from London to Cafe Track in Northampton on Sunday 30 June 2019 which has raised a fantastic amount to help us support more autistic adults across the country into employment.  Four teams of cyclists, the Tortoises, the Hares, the Foxes and the Hounds set off from the Lodge Shop in East Finchley, which is run by Oak Lodge School and provides work experience for their pupils, to Cafe Track in Northampton, which is run by Autism Forward’s mentor partner, Thomas Cliffe of Track NN. The weather was perfect and everyone arrived safely.  The Tortoises were first to reach Cafe Track, so their head start, and indeed the team name, has since been disputed! Four of the Hares team cycled all the way back to London, making it a 240km round trip.  Phenomenal!

Thanks to all the cyclists, the support team, Oak Lodge school, Cafe Track and all our donors and sponsors.

Fantastic effort from everyone involved.  Still time to sponsor the teams here:

Thank you to all our generous sponsors – Team Autism forward finished the 13th out of the two day 100km challengers.  It was hot, it was tiring, but it was worth it!  We have so far raised over £6000 for Autism Forward, every penny of which will go directly to fund specialist one-to-one mentoring and workshops to enable autistic adults to find and maintain paid or voluntary employment or improve their social inclusion and support.  Thank you all for your generosity and support!  If you would still like to sponsor us,  the event is still live on the following link:
