I rode my first Ride for Youth in 2009. Since that time I have participated as a rider 6 times and support crew 4 times.
I had an accident in 2016 and I gave up riding. But with the love and support of the Ride for Youth community I am making a comeback this year.
The training has been really tough given how long I have been off the bike. I am not going to deny that there have been a few tears!
I was recently reminded by a fellow rider that struggling with poor mental health is very similar to the pain that we suffer during training.
I am proud to have been part of the Ride for Youth community and to help Youth Focus with its important work in providing desperately needed mental health support for our young people.
