During July and August this year, Ted's Maroochydore customer, avid photographer and "Everyday Hero" Richard West, made it his mission to ride his motorcycle around Australia in 62 days, with the goal of raising $10,000 for the charity Beyond Blue.
He was kind enough to share his images and story here...
Muhammad Ali said “If my mind can conceive it, and my heart can believe it - then I can achieve it.” Floating like a butterfly and stinging like a bee Muhammed Ali achieved great things both inside and outside of the ring.
Keeping the mind and heart focussed to achieve great things is inspiring stuff.
But depression can make even the smallest tasks appear like mountainous obstacles. Sometimes we need help to get us back in mental shape to overcome the problems that keep us from functioning.
I've been lucky to have an opportunity to ride solo around Australia on a motorcycle. I want to do this in 62 days. A day for each year of my life. I intend to reflect on each of those 62 years. Ups and downs.
I'm inspired by the work of Beyond Blue and wanted to support them by raising money. My hope is that this project, 'A RIDE AROUND THE BLOCK', will raise awareness of the importance of mental health and the great work they do. Hope, Recovery. Resilience.

Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!
