Eyre Peninsula motorbike riders are being invited to join the 2020 Ride Against Suicide.

The ride, now in its 5th year will be taking a slightly different approach this year just like many other events across the state with riders now able to ride from where ever they are on the day.

Each year Ride Against Suicide, ride through the Barossa Valley and through to the Royal Adelaide Show however with the show's cancelation, the ride won’t be going ahead in that format.

Event Organiser Janet Kuys says this year they are encouraging riders from all over the state to join in this Sunday 13th of September from where ever they are and to post their journey on social media to support people grieving from suicide.

“It helps us do some of our programs to support people who are grieving from suicide, so we run programs and activities and things to help people when they are working through that grief if they’ve lost someone to suicide.

“So if people wanna join in and do it, the more the merrier, we look forward to seeing all the lovely photos on the Facebook pages.

"Of course doing it like this, the advantage is that riders who are further away from our traditional run will now be able to participate.

“So it’ll be good to see how many riders we can get and let’s see those photos from all over the state and possibly the country." Said Janet.

Riders can use the hashtags #rideagainstsuicide and #theshowathome when they post online.

Locals can register at https://www.mycause.com.au/events/rideagainstsuicide with a $20 registration fee.
