Father-Son Duo Bikes From Canada to Coney Island to Support Autism Organizations
Ten-year-old James Potvin and his father, Chris, rode over 600 miles.
A father and his 10-year-old son undertook an epic journey for a good cause that wrapped up this weekend in New York City's Coney Island.
James Potvin and his father, Chris, completed a bike ride Saturday that began in Ontario Aug. 18 in a bid to raise money and awareness for autism.
Nearly 650 miles later, they were welcomed to New York's beach boardwalk with open arms.
"It was a great ride," Chris Potvin told CBS New York. "It was so much time on the road, but it was a lot of fun and we felt like we did a lot of good for the community."
James, who has autism, and his dad raised thousands in a similar but much shorter ride in Canada this time last year.
