Local cyclist Jo Perry has raised more than $6,000 for mental health out west through an epic 1311km charity bike ride from Amberley to Longreach

Jo rolled into Longreach on 29 April to end the eight-day biennial charity ride, RideWest, which to date has raised $500,000 to help the Royal Flying Doctor Service bridge the gap in mental health support in regional Queensland.

Jo said RideWest, which she has now done twice, was life changing..

“I cannot express the overwhelming sense of achievement this brings (both personally and as a team),” she said.

“Thank you to family, friends and businesses, in particular Dick Moloney, who have helped RideWest achieve this.”
