This Is The Reason We Ride

It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. Black Dog Ride Sydney Coordinator Nathan Gyaneshwar took the image below at the recent 2013 National 1 Day Ride.

The Reason We Ride

As you can see from the dates on their shirts, their loss is recent, their pain is raw.

Tragically, their pain is shared by over 2,000 families each year. If heading out onto the highways on our bikes starts the conversation which will drag the black dog out of the closet and encourage even one person to seek support, then we believe this labour of love for Black Dog Ride is a success.

Our heartfelt thanks to the nearly 5,000 Black Dog Riders around Australia who rode with us last Sunday to raise awareness of depression and suicide prevention.

Please call Lifeline on 13 11 14 if you are in crisis.
