TO raise much-needed money to support mental health, Mornington Peninsula cyclists with the Ride for Relief team left for Mallacoota yesterday to enjoy some pampering before the ride.
The group will be enjoying a pre-opening dining and bathing experience at the soon to be open Metung Hot Springs, where they will be able to relax in geothermal waters and take on breathtaking views across the Gippsland Lakes.
The riders are preparing to ride across Victoria as part of a fundraising mission, and hope to build on the success of past Ride for Relief events. This year’s ride will be a six-day tour option, in addition to the one-day ride.
The group will travel across half of Victoria exploring the emerging bathing destinations in Metung, Traralgon and Phillip Island along their route back to the Peninsula Hot Springs.
All money raised goes directly to Mentis Assist, a community, not-for-profit mental health support service that provides specialised mental health services for people living with severe mental illness in and outside the Mornington Peninsula.
