Ride for Relief

February 2024 | Hosted by Peninsula Hot Springs

6-day tour: 19 - 25 February, 2024
1-day ride : 25 February, 2024

Peninsula Hot Springs with community partner Mentis Assist, is hosting the 6th annual Ride for Relief, a charity cycling event to build connection and promote mental health awareness.

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 message from Peninsula Hot Springs Chairman and Co-Founder Charles Davidson

the cause

Funds raised from the 2024 event will be donated to our charity partner Mentis Assist to promote accessible mental health and physical wellbeing opportunities that work to build strong and resilient individuals and communities.

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.

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.

details of the event

partnership opportunities 2024

We are pleased to invite partnership opportunities for Ride for Relief 2024.

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 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 5th 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.
