Background Story

Back in 2009, we’ve established our supporting connection with Black Dog Institute. At the same time, I’ve heard about Steve Andrews, and his solo ride around Australia earlier that year from two of Raz’s contacts, who suggested we connect…

In the months leading to the ride, Riding4aCause team promoted and organised the Sydney Launch Event (Fathers’ Day, September 5 2010), getting hundreds of motorcycles, riders and pillions to ride with the trio out of Sydney…
