The Ride Don’t Hide movement began with Michael Schratter, a Canadian teacher living with bipolar disorder who has spent his whole life educating the public about mental health. In 2010, he spent almost a year and a half cycling around the world and across Canada to share his story and empower others to help break the mental illness stigma, one pedal at a time. His incredible journey touched people all over the world.
