Yup.. this is actually happening!
I am riding (yes on a mountain bike!) from Cairns to Cape York in early June over 8 days through some of Australia’s most remote country to raise awareness for Mental Health and more importantly to engage with the Communities I meet along the way.

I highly respect what the Black Dog Institute do and believe this to be such an important initiative hence why I have signed up to ride a mountain bike across the top of Australia!

We need to destigmatise Mental Health, raise awareness and talk about the challenges many Australians face.

It is estimated that one in four people in the world will be affected by mental or neurological disorders at some point in their lives. Around 450 million people currently suffer from such conditions, placing mental disorders among the leading causes of ill-health and disability worldwide (World Health Organisation 2017). Australia is an amazing country, but we are not immune from this reality.

Thank you for your support and think of me as I’m smashing out the kilometres on unsealed red dirt roads through the most remote parts of Australia!
