Mind ride 2019 took place this year on Sunday 24th March at Himley Hall, Dudley.
Mind Ride first began during March 2018 as part of the Mayor of Dudley, Cllr Dave Tyler’s efforts to raise funds for his three chosen charities during his term as Mayor (Dudley Mind, YMCA and Alzheimer’s UK).
This year Mind Ride returned, bigger, louder and better than before. With live music from Black Country Radio, food, raffle/tombola prizes to be won and more.
The ride out itself commenced from Himley Hall at 10am taking on a 19.7 mile ride circling the Borough and returning back to Himley in just under an hour.

Mind Ride will return early 2020 and we hope to see everyone who has attended the last two Mind Ride’s as well as many new faces coming along for the first time. No plans have been made at this time but we hope to make Mind Ride 2020 even bigger and louder that the previous year!!
