Our annual Suicide Awareness Ride is a family-friendly event that promotes social connectedness.  Choose your mode of transportation and join us for a weekend of fun and fellowship. 

Touring (road bike route) and Adventure (dirt bike route)

The touring and adventure routes will begin at the Gladstone Marina stage plaza area.  Registrations open at 7.00am.  When 'stands up' is announced at approx. 9.00am, we will head west, visiting some of our smaller country towns, while stopping for morning tea and lunch, along the way.  Finish at the Ubobo Discovery Centre for an afternoon of presentations, live music, dinner, bar and overnight camping. Just a few points to note:

  • Adventure rider entrants (dirt bike riders) must be licensed and have basic trail riding/driving experience.

  • All vehicles must be registered and reliable to be able to complete the route/event.


  • Camping stopover will be held at Ubobo Discovery Centre, 15 McDonald Street, Ubobo, Boyne Valley. Non-powered camping fee included in the registration – Saturday night only.

  • For powered sites, please call the Ubobo Discovery Centre on 0439 111 268 to book your site. If there is no answer, please leave a message and they will call you back.  [Update 03/05/23:  Powered sites are now booked out].

  • A box trailer will also be available at the Marina for you to put your swags/tent in to be transported to Ubobo.
