New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ LA Ritmo) Bikers For Autism are a passionate father and son team, striving to make a difference in the lives of the people across Canada affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder. Inspired by a close family member's journey to raise a son diagnosed with autism. Backed by Autism Speaks Canada, Bikers For Autism will set out on a 39-day mission to spread their message of awareness across an entire country.

The motorcycle ride will begin on July 29, 2012 at 11am with a gathering at the Trev Deeley Motorcycles located at 1875 Boundary Road, Vancouver. There will be a fundraising event, capped off with a Vancouver Police Department escort of over 100 Harley riders to the trans-Canada highway at 3pm. The ride will finish 8,000+ kilometres later in St. John's, Newfoundland. Autism awareness events are planned to take place in Calgary, Toronto and St John's. All proceeds raised from the Bikers For Autism events will go directly to Osoyoos Autism Behavioural Centre and partial funds will go directly to Autism Speaks Canada in support of their mission.

There will also be a pre-kickoff event happening on July 22, 2012. A concert featuring local talent, as well as a silent auction, will be held at Shark Club Vancouver. Presented by 100.5 The Peak and Okanagan Springs, the concert promises an exciting night of music featuring The Boom Booms and Star Captains. The silent auction will feature prizes from Harley Davidson, Harbourside Institute of Technology and many other local restaurants and businesses.

The Boom Booms have lit the local music scene on fire with their infectious six-piece Latin-soul-funk-rock-reggae feel good music. They recently placed 2nd in 100.5 The Peak's highly regarded Peak Performance Project. Forged from friendships born on the school yards, The Boom Booms flat out play music that makes you get up and dance.

Star Captains are a seven-member band based in Vancouver, BC. Their music carries the spirit of seventies soul, complimented with modern sound design and instrumental technology. A Star Captains live show always delivers high-energy performances and introspective music. Connecting with fans are what this band is all about.

Tickets are $15 at the door or $12 pre-sale, and are available at Shark Club Vancouver, Zulu records, Red Cat Records, High Life Records & online at
