After inclement weather turned riders away from the event in March, organisers were pleased to see 70 take off for the Black Dog Ride to Batlow on Sunday.
"I'm gobsmacked with how many people came," said organiser Nerolie Falconer.
"A lot of people wait to see what the weather will do on the morning before coming out [but] we've had people come from Sydney and from Young and all over."
While some riders were returning for the day, many others turned out for their first-ever venture.
This time, four-year-old King Charles spaniel cross foxy Diva took the trip in luxury in the car with owners Marty O'Callaghan and 10-year-old Annabella Thompson.
Though, she has taken many trips across Australia in a pet carrier on the back of the bike before.
Ben and 10-year-old Isabella Thomas faced a cold morning travelling in from Tumut to Wagga to begin the ride back out to Batlow.
Being her first Black Dog Ride, Isabella was pleased to be presented with better conditions on arrival to Wagga.
"It's a bit chilly, but I like going through the wind and going fast," the 10-year-old said.
Over the past week, Mrs Falconer and fellow organiser Graham 'Bear' Falconer have been selling raffle tickets to raise funds for the suicide prevention cause.
By the end of the ride, the team donated $1758 to Batlow's Country Woman's Association.
The March ride raised $3400 for the Black Dog Institute.
