Three Camden men will lead 10 cyclists on a ride 300 kilometres from Narellan to raise awareness about mental health issues.

Narellan’s Mark Anthony will be joined by peers Craig Trautcsh and Neil Hayter as well as 10 other cyclists will depart from Graham Hill Road and begin their three day trek to Jamberoo via Robertson at 8am.

The three men helped form the Cycle of the Mind – an organisation designed to increase awareness about depression and suicide.

The trio will raise funds for the like-minded organisation R U OK? through the event and have already raised close to $9000.

“Depression is indiscriminate. It tends to affect both ends of the spectrum and everyone in between,” Mr Anthony said.

“R U OK? embraces the same ethos we do: addressing awareness and tackling stigma surrounding mental health.”
