Ride West is a boutique charity bike ride that aims to raise funds and help raise the awareness for men’s mental health in Australia.

Since 2009, when founder Les Hancock was touched by the alarming figures associated with male suicide in outback Queensland, Ride West and its associated corporate sponsors, riders and event partners, has raised over 350K for the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) in Queensland.

With its 3rd event set to take place in May 2014 over 1200 long, hard km’s and 7 days from Brisbane to Longreach, Ride West is aiming to take its total funds raised to over 500K in 2014.

A’QTO is very proud to be the major event partner for this great cause, alongside major sponsors NAB, Lindsay Transport Australia, M&K Lawyers, Williams Hall Chadwick Chartered Accountants and FAST Group.

“Using a challenging bike ride with 30 riders toughing it out over 1200km’s in Outback QLD as a conduit for spreading the message of the importance of men speaking up, asking for help and talking to mates early enough when faced with health issues, is a great fit for us as a brand and as cyclists…..cycling provides the perfect opportunity for guys to talk up and connect with mates’’, says Damian Hancock, founder A’QTO.
