1 Dayer 2017 Background

Since 2010, Black Dog Ride's 1 Dayer has brought together Black Dog Riders for an enjoyable and meaningful day of riding, uniting like minded people for a vital mission - raising awareness of depression and suicide prevention. 8 people a day take their lives, and Black Dog Riders uniting together under one banner with one voice aims to amplify a national message of mental health awareness to prevent this tragic loss of life to suicide. We need to talk! Let's get the conversation started, register for Black Dog Ride's 1 Dayer 2017 today!

All riders registered online before midnight AEDT 6th March automatically go in the draw to win this fantastic prize! Thank you Indian Motorcycle!

1 Dayer T-Shirts

Riders now have the opportunity to purchase a Black Dog Ride 1 Dayer 2017 t-shirt. The t-shirt is available in both men's and ladies sizes for just $30 which includes shipping!

Please note -- the first pre-order has been sent to the supplier. Those will be dispatched prior to the 1 Dayer. A second pre-order is STILL OPEN! As the second pre-order won't be dispatched to the supplier before the 1 Dayer, buyers won't receive them until AFTER the 1 Dayer. However you'll still be the proud wearer of the first BDR 1 Dayer T-Shirt!

Grab this opportunity while you can and purchase them in the BDR Shop here.
