Black Dog Ride supporters who can only afford the time for a day trip can register for the annual 1 Dayer rides in each state.
Since 2013, the third Sunday of March has been the day thousands hit the highways to spread the Black Dog Ride message of awareness.
This year it falls on March 18 and there will be new 1 Dayers in Tamworth, Toowoomba, Albury-Wodonga, Ballarat, Echuca, Geelong, Mildura, Mornington, Melbourne North, Penshurst and Wangaratta.
Registration opens in early January.
Top End agenda
The 2018 agenda finishes with the annual epic Black Dog Ride heading to Darwin for the first time.
It leaves each state at varied times and arrives on Friday, August 17.
State coordinators are organising itineraries now and registrations will open after the 1 Dayer in March.
