I have decided to head off to Alice Springs with a group of riders from Sydney joining in on the Black Dog Ride.
This event is a fund raising ride to support the work of the Black Dog Institute in raising awareness of illness caused by depression and anxiety. Angry Anderson is the ambassador for the event and I’m sure it’s going to be a fantastic ride. Check out the live map page after 5 September 2010 if you want to see where I’m riding.
The Black Dog Ride began as one mans’ personal quest to complete a solo motorbike trip around Australia to raise community awareness of depression. In Australia, each year around 1,000,000 adults and 100,000 young people live with depression.
