Ridewest 2016

Ridewest completed its fifth ride to raise awareness for men’s mental health in rural areas. The event raises funds and awareness for Royal Flying Doctors mental health unit and is sponsored by Lindsay Australia, Qantas, NAB, and Morgans Stockbroking.

This year Nathan King our CFO rode with 22 other riders in the event, supported by Oscar Torres and the Rural teams out through the Gatton region. The ride commenced in Brisbane and then over the following six days rode through Roma, Mitchell, Augathella, Blackall and finally Longreach.

This year $200,000 was raised, making the total for five events over $1 million!

Highlights of the event were giving away bicycles in to the school kids in Augathella, being interrupted by a horse at dinner in Mitchell, and making it to the Stockman’s Hall of Fame. A big thankyou to Oscar for keeping the riders safe and motivated throughout the event.

The event was also covered in Country Life, which can be accessed through the below links.
