Thumbs up Black Dog Ride

Signed on with some friends to do a day leg, well part of it anyway, of the Black Dog Ride to the Red Centre.
We're only doing a half-day on the first day of the Sydney run on Sat 17th August, which will take us from the start at Castle Hill out to Mudgee for a night, then we'll head back home on Sunday... about 600k's round trip.
It's a charity ride to raise funds for depression and suicide prevention, so a good cause to pay a few dollars toward.
Our friends want some riding time as practice for their 2nd Snowy Ride trip.... So hopefully will be good weather, although expecting it to be quite cool.... and really hoping it doesn't bloody well snow up Lithgow way as I know it can if an extreme front comes through.
Entries have to be lodged by end of July.... Riders will travel from all states on their own runs to meet up in Alice Springs about a week later.

Re: Black Dog Ride

I seriously contemplated going last time it was run but I'm not a fan of riding with LOTS of other bikes. A couple of friends did it. One loved it but he rides a Harley and likes to pretend he's a wild hog. The other is a cranky Croatian and he said he just stayed with the group at the rear.
I do think it is a good cause and there is one of our local Ulysses guys doing the whole ride to the red centre and I'll be throwing my support behind him.

Re: Black Dog Ride

Hi Chris
If any of the days was near my territory I would do a leg for sure but its a fair distance from my place, Great cause though,,, Something that's needs more awareness for sure
Cheers

Re: Black Dog Ride

Yeah, I figure you're in between the NSW & Vic/Tassie group... closest leg looks like Swan Hill to Mildura on the Vic group...
Still, that's the sort of ride you bought the LT for...
