Get on your bike and take a ride for Lifeline

THE 6th Annual Compression v Depression Social Ride from Lifeline Northern Rivers and Northern Rider Quarterly Magazine will take place on Sunday, November 1. 

Compression v Depression is an annual motorcycle social ride that engages the Northern Rivers' motorcycling community, encourages a positive approach to mental health challenges and raises funds for Lifeline Northern Rivers' local 24/7 crisis support service.

For the first time this year's Compression will have a fundraising raffle as part of the event thanks to McMinn's Quality Meats of Bexhill, who have donated a half yearling beef valued at $750 to be raffled.

Tickets are available from all six Lifeline stores in the region and from McMinns Butchers. 

The ride promotes awareness of the mental health issues that can potentially affect anybody in our community and highlights the positive part that we can all play in de‐stigmatising and responding to those issues.

All proceeds from the event go to Lifeline Northern Rivers.

Compression v Depression 6 is an all welcome event that raises funds through sponsorship, registration fees, memorabilia sales and raffles.

The ALL WELCOME event on November 1 kicks off at the Green Garage, corner Tennyson and Browning St, Byron Bay, with a chance to get breakfast from 7.30am.

Grab some mates and a coffee and have a look at the motorcycles for an informal Show'n'Shine.

Registration for the Ride begins at 8am and the cost is $20 per person which includes lunch.

The Ride departs Byron at 9.30am sharp and finishes at the Eltham Pub for the Main Prize Draw at 3.30pm.
