On their bikes! Garry McDonald and Minister for Health Bronwyn Pike ride for World Mental Health Day

Bicycle Victoria and beyondblue: the national depression initiative today announced a joint campaign to encourage all Victorians to tackle depression and go for a bike ride to mark World Mental Health Day (Sunday 10 October).

Harry Barber, General Manager of Bicycle Victoria, said: "This is our prescription for World Mental Health Day. Get your kids or call a friend and ride your bikes to somewhere scenic where they sell good ice-cream and remind yourself what life is all about."

Pleasant sentiments Harry, but I need more than ice cream to cheer me up. Think beer 'o clock's going start early this Sunday. It's a glorious Sunday morning. Wish it was raining.
