TURNING CHAOS INTO CONTROL.
The black dog still jumps. In fact, tragically, it leaps higher than ever. Every day in the United Kingdom 13 men take their own lives due to mental illness. One in five men in Australia suffer from some form of mental illness. In the USA, men are four times more likely to resort to suicide than women. But it’s a subject rarely broached.
In honour of men worldwide who suffer in silence, The Man Ride 2017 headed to the old country in search of some of the most testing conditions experienced on two wheels. One thousand kilometres from the rugged peaks of Snowdonia, Wales to the bustling heart of London … in just five days.
But wherever you are in the world. Whatever your mental disposition. Or your gender. We asked you to get involved. And you did. In your droves. Hundreds of riders completed 200km local epics in nine global locations to broaden the conversation about Men’s Mental Illness. For that, we thank you.
Together, we created change.
