Lifecycle Community Ride

Lifecycle is a fun-filled community cycling event, held at beautiful Rond Terrace on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin in Canberra from 7:00am on Saturday 21 October 2017. It is a celebration of fun and fitness and includes several exciting sub-events and a range of entertainment that can be enjoyed by all ages.

Unfortunately we have made the decision to cancel this event due to the lack of registrations.


The Lifecycle Community Ride is a picturesque ride around the central basin (‘two-bridges’) and/or west basin loops of Canberra’s iconic Lake Burley Griffin, whilst taking in the event HQ atmosphere.  This is a great event for social riders, families, and those aiming to achieve a personal distance challenge.  You can ride anytime between 8:00am and 4:00pm (registrations open from 7:00am at Rond Terrace), and we will have a professional recording system set up to record your laps and therefore total distance.
Cost: Adult – $25, Child (under 16) – $15, family group (two adults and two children) – $65 Sign up.

No. The Lifecycle event format is designed to cater for all areas of the community. We want to encourage maximum community participation, so if you only have an hour or two available during the Lifecycle event, or you are participating with a young family, then come down and ride a couple of gentle short laps and enjoy the entertainment and other activities on offer at the Event HQ. If you are looking for an endurance challenge to test yourself, then set yourself a kilometre goal and ride for as much of the Lifecycle event window as you believe that you are capable of.

Yes, absolutely, we have designed Lifecycle to be as flexible as possible.  You can ride at any time during the event window. Our timing system can cater for riders that may do a few laps, attend to other commitments and then return later to continue riding.

Yes, we will have facilities available at the Registration Tent for completing online registrations on the day.  However we encourage everybody intending to take part in Lifecycle to register beforehand if they possibly can, to help our Volunteers in the Registration Tent.

Yes, please present to the Registration Tent (it will have a sign on it) at Event Headquarters before you commence riding.  You will collect your bicycle number plate (needs to be attached to the front of your bike), and your rider number will be activated in the timing system.

Ample parking is available on the large grassed area off Wendouree Drive (just behind the Lifecycle Event Headquarters).  Wendouree Drive can be accessed from Kings Avenue (northbound lanes only) or from Constitution Avenue.

Yes.  There are bike racks available at the Lifecycle Event Headquarters, however please note that whilst the area is generally quite secure, Lifecycle is unable to provide dedicated security services, so you leave your bike unattanded at your own risk.

Firstly, the Lifecycle Team wants to assure everybody that Lifecycle is more than anything, intended to be a fun experience that supports a wonderful cause.  You do not have to be regular cyclists to take part.  This could be your opportunity to renew your relationship with your bike! Otherwise, why not consider volunteering – it can be a truly uplifting experience?  For further details, click here.

This year the focus is raising money to cover the costs of the Patient Transport Program. It costs the Leukaemia Foundation approx $17,500.00 per year to transport the ACT / Southern NSW patients.

This service is specifically designed to relieve the pressure faced by people with blood cancer who are transport disadvantaged. That is, if they have limited private transport options, such as the carer in the family having to return to work. During treatment, a person’s immune system is severely weakened, so catching public transport can be dangerous due to possible infections. It also ensures patients arrive at appointments safely and on-time, as well as providing a friendly kind face to greet them.
