How it started

It all started over a few beers in a pub at Kalgoorlie.

Film-maker Renee Marie came along to film the ride and, at the time of writing, a documentary is in the editing phase. We stopped at five towns along the way for the psychiatrists to give presentations to the local mental health professionals. In the process the ride became a rolling mental health conference. We also conducted a public meeting in Trangie NSW where the locals gave us lunch. That was probably the highlight of the trip apart, of course, from the thrill of finally arriving safe in Bondi.

How We Started

For a few years I entertained the idea of riding the Nullarbor. My son Tom, who’s also a motorcyclist, pushed me to do it. I invited along my biker friends Ross Leonard (a psychologist) and Oliver O’Connell (a psychiatrist) and we did it over a week in March/April of 2011. We also deviated down to Port Lincoln on there we did the cage dive with great white sharks there. Two items ticked off the Bucket List. It was mega fun.

Oliver suggested we should call ourselves Psychs on Bikes, with Tom being the honorary psych. We started to get white-line-fever, with a desire to ride on to Perth, but ran out of time. Over a few beers in a pub one night I came up with the idea of doing a run next year from coast-to-coast and use it to raise money for a mental health charity. A few schooners later the vote was unanimous. That’s how it all started.
