1 Man, 2 Wheels, 3 Cylinders and an overland adventure across the world to fight the stigma associated with mental health and raise funds for HeadsUpGuys.
Hi, I’m Colby Ellis, a 29 year old Canadian-Kiwi Engineer with a passion for travel and motorcycling, in 2018 I am going to circumnavigate the world.
Like so many others, depression unknowingly robbed me of many pleasures in life and contributed towards the deterioration of relationships with those closest to me. During one of my lowest points I found motorcycling. It entered my life for all the wrong reasons, as it was the inherent risk and danger I found attractive, but by a stroke of good fortune the pursuit has turned into one of my greatest supports on the road back.
As I make my way across the many regions of this planet I will interview and feature the people I meet and ask them the simple, yet universal question - what makes you happy? In a way it is a quest to discover the answer for myself, an answer that I can learn and grow from.
HeadsUpGuys is an organization I trust and I believe in the services and tools they provide. Their health strategies, self-check tools, tips, and first hand experiences are wonderfully displayed and make it easier for men to break through the deep seeded societal stigmas and reach out for help.
Combined with the support of friends, family and several organizations like HeadsUpGuys, I am now on a positive path of growth and am ready to launch on one of the biggest adventures of my life.
