Cycling suits mental health

30 Nov 2010

On November 19 about 250 people gathered in Docklands for the first Suit Up and Ride event and raised more than $50,000 for youth mental health.

The Orygen Youth Health event attracted more than 40 teams from corporations and organisations, which took to Melbourne Bikeshare bikes and battled it out along the Waterfront City and NewQuay boulevard.

The event saw teams race along a 2km circuit in their work attire and raised money to fund the Headsmart program which educates young people in schools across Victoria about the signs of depression.

Bendigo and Adelaide Bank took out the event with the fastest overall time, followed by Credit Suisse.

Australian of the Year Professor Patrick McGorry, former world cycling champion Cadel Evans, Chief Commissioner of Victoria Police Simon Overland, Australian pro-tour cyclists Matt Goss and Wes Sulzberger, Olympian Shane Kelly and sportsmen Brad Hodge and Robbie Kearns also joined in on the fun with a celebrity race.

A group of local fire fighters who recently travelled across the USA to raise money for the 9/11 fire fighters also entered (pictured).
