A group of 40 motorcyclists will make Wimmera and Mallee pitstops as part of a nationwide crusade for mental health and suicide prevention.
Not-for-profit Black Dog Ride Australia is hosting an ‘Around Australia Ride’ to mark the 10th anniversary of the first solo ride around Australia by founder Steve Andrews.
Stops in St Arnaud and Horsham on Friday will form part of the 35-day and more than 15,000-kilometre ride, which starts and ends in Busselton, Western Australia.
Victorian coordinator Bernie Garvey said riders would have morning tea at St Arnaud at 10am and be in Horsham for lunch at 1pm.
He said people can support Black Dog Ride Australia online at www. blackdogride.org.au.
