It is being held in late spring rather than the usual winter timing to avoid dangerous snow and ice conditions.
Riders will head to Tassie from various states on October 28, meeting in Hobart on November 5.
Black Dog Ride founder Steve Andrews rode to the centre of Australia in 2009 to raise funds and awareness for suicide prevention and mental health.
The following year he started the annual ride to the centre of Australia, then one-day rides, a lap of Australia, a trip across America and has raised more than $2.2m for mental health charities across the nation.
Just last year more than $360,000 was distributed to 30 mental health organisations.
Steve is no longer with BDR, stepping down for personal reasons, but last year he told us that he regretted Tasmania not being included. So he organised this special ride to Tassie.
You can find more information about the Black Dog Ride to Tasmania 2017, including how to register, on the Black Dog Ride website.
This year, the BDR will focus on raising awareness of mental illness and suicide among ex-service, veterans and emergency workers.
“We aim to break down barriers to conversations around mental health amongst the very people who are helping us in our times of need but whose own mental wellbeing is often overlooked,” the website says.
