6-day tour: 20 - 26 February, 2023
1-day ride : 26 February, 2023

The 5th annual Ride for Relief, a community based charity event supporting mental illness, will reunite this month to travel from East Gippsland to the Mornington Peninsula, raising funds for a cause close to the hearts of hot springs founders Charles Davidson and Adrian Bromage.

It has never been more important local organisations and community members come together to support those living with mental health issues.

1 in 2 Australian adults experience a mental disorder during their lifetime, with the COVID 19 pandemic being a stimulant for an increased risk of anxiety and depression diagnosis.

Through Ride for Relief, we are coming together with local organisations and community members to support those living with mental health challenges.

      a unique event

      Ride for Relief is a boutique event that allows a small number of participants riding and socialising together on the event day(s). This creates an intimate team environment where discussions of mental health and personal stories can be shared.

      the journey

      Connect Sport Australia will assist us at each stage of the 6-day tour and 1-day ride. Dedicated volunteer members are assisting every peloton throughout the event ensuring the safety and the best condition of the riders.

      details of the event

      the story behind ride for relief

      Ride of Relief was established by Charles and Yuki Davidson in honour of Charles' brother and Peninsula Hot Springs co-founder, Richard. In partnership with Mentis Assist, the event aims to prompt the important discussions surrounding mental health.

      partnership opportunities 2023

      We are pleased to invite partnership opportunities for Ride for Relief 2023.

      The initial event in 2018, which had 18 participants in one peloton and no partner, raised over $18,000. Building on the success of Ride for Relief, in 2021 (which was postponed to March 2022 due to COVID-19 lockdowns) it introduced an epic 6-day tour which traversed over 800km from Mallacoota back to the Mornington Peninsula in addition to the original 1-day ride. It had over 60 registrations, and was very fortunately supported by 19 local and national businesses as event partners, who enabled us to accomplish our mission – fundraising over $150,000 and raising significant awareness on mental health challenges.

      Learning from delivering the 4th event this year, we are more dedicated to tailoring partnership packages to match your organisation’s community engagement objectives.

      We thank you for your consideration to take this opportunity to provide the most needed support in our society.
