Black Dog Ride wants rid­ers to tag along

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - NEWS -

REG­IS­TRA­TION for Black Dog Ride’s Around Aus­tralia Ride 2019 is open.

On July 26, around 50 Black Dog Rid­ers will de­part from Bus­sel­ton, Western Aus­tralia, on an epic ride around Aus­tralia to raise aware­ness of, and funds for, men­tal health and suicide pre­ven­tion.

Trav­el­ling clock­wise around Aus­tralia, the rid­ers will cover 15,696km over 35 days, com­plet­ing hun­dreds of com­mu­nity and lo­cal town en­gage­ments.

The ride will mark the 10th an­niver­sary of the first solo ride around Aus­tralia un­der­taken by Black Dog Ride Aus­tralia’s founder, Steve An­drews.

“Fos­ter­ing aware­ness of de­pres­sion and suicide pre­ven­tion in our com­mu­ni­ties is the best cat­a­lyst for pre­ven­tion,” Steve said.

Mo­tor­cy­cle en­thu­si­asts are en­cour­aged to join the ride to show their sup­port for this im­por­tant cause.
