Calling themselves Team Life Cycle, these keen riders from Melbourne have a passion for pushing their bodies to the very limit, all in the name of mental health.
The Murray to Moyne Cycling Relay began 35 years ago. It was the inspiration of Graham ‘Woody’ Woodrup.
Woody dreamt of spreading the news that riding a bike not only has fabulous health and social benefits but can also help others.
The Murray to Moyne is a team endurance event and has become an established classic on the cycling calendar.
Riders cycle in relays non-stop over two days and one night. They choose different routes, starting from towns on the banks of the Murray River, riding across stunning countryside in western Victoria and finishing in Port Fairy.
They are encouraged to raise money for hospitals, health services and health-related charities close to their hearts.
Although many of the riders from Team Life Cycle are no strangers to this relay event, this year was the start of a new partnership with Uniting.
“We are delighted to partner with Uniting Vic.Tas for the first of what we hope will be many fundraising cycling events,” says team captain Chris Moorfoot.
One in three Australians suffer from some form of mental illness throughout or during their lifetime.
The residual impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic have also affected mental health by increasing stress, anxiety and isolation, and many people are\ still trying to find their feet.
This is why Team Life Cycle’s efforts are so important in showing support for those living with mental illness.
