Break the cycle is a campaign created by Wellways to promote positive health and reduce the rate of suicide. Suicide is the leading cause of death for Australians aged between 15 and 44 years of age and has a devastating impact on families, friends and communities.


Our journey

Over 5 days we're cycling over 550 kilometres through regional NSW, to support local communities who have been impacted by COVID-19, bushfires and ongoing drought. We are promoting connection and supports available, encouraging communities to start the conversations and know where to go for support when needed.

Starting in Wagga Wagga, then cycling to Gundagai, Tumbarumba, Gerogery, Urana and finishing back in Wagga Wagga, we will be holding workshops to get the community involved in suicide prevention and promoting positive mental health.

During our ride 3 - 7 May, we'll be updating this page with our journey each night for you to follow!
