Take Time For Mental Health…On Your Bike

This World Mental Health Day selectability is inviting the Townsville and Mackay communities to once again participate in a short bike ride for Mental Health and encourages everyone to get active and shine a spotlight on mental health! After the success of last year's events Take Time For Mental Health…On Your Bike will be held for just the second time on Sunday 10 October from 8am at Raintree Grove, Riverway Townsville and Bluewater Trail Mackay.

Why are we doing it?

Our bike ride and BBQ brunch aims to help breakdown the stigma around mental illness and show the community that there are simple things that we can all do to boost our own wellbeing.

Who can get involved?

The ride is for all skills levels and abilities and you don’t even need to ride, you can make your way around the circuit however you like. The most important thing is showing up, showing your support and taking time for your own mental health!

Why is it important to participate?

One in five Australians aged 16-85 experience a mental illness in any year and it is important for us to reconnect as a community, raise awareness around mental illness, and encourage people to access the support they need those that need.
