According to statistics*, depression is the leading cause of disability across the globe with an estimated one in five Australians affected by mental illness every year.
Participants will not only take on the challenge of riding through the beautiful terrain of Mornington Peninsula but can also unwind, relax and recover after each day by bathing in natural hot springs at our multi-award winning destination.Join us for 2 days and 2 nights over a memorable weekend to make a difference and aid in providing relief to those living with these conditions.
