Ride from Townsville to Ayr and back for the weekend!

The Banish the Black Dog Charity Bike Ride is a relaxed cycling tour promoted by the Rotary Club of Townsville Central to raise awareness of mental health issues in our community, and to raise funds to aid research into the causes and treatments of mental health disorders. The rides major donation recipient is Australian Rotary Health, the largest non government mental health research funding organization in Australia.  We also support local initiatives in the treatment and support of those suffering mental illnesses.

The Townsville Central Rotary Club had the vision to target mental health issues and support healthier minds, bodies and communities through the Banish the Black Dog Charity Bike Ride.  The inaugural ride was held in 2009 and received magnificent support with 85 riders.  The number of riders has grown over the years and we have raised a substantial amount for the research of mental health issues and support for local mental health organisations.  In 2017 we hope to boost that total even further.
