FAQ

Firstly, great news!  We would love to talk to you.  You will need to make sure that you have a suitable bike in good working condition (there are numerous dirt roads, so we recommend a mountain bike), and that you have the fitness to ride approximately 100km per day for 6 consecutive days.  We will provide food and hotel accommodation (three star typically).  We encourage our core riders to set up a fund raising page through the Lifecycle website as part of the registration process and aim to raise $500 to assist us to cover costs and also to support our fund raising efforts.  The Lifecycle Regional Ride is an amazing experience for the core riders.  Not only do you have the opportunity to experience some amazing countryside in the region, you will meet inspirational people in each town that quickly justify that slightly tired feeling or slight discomfort in the posterior region from a day in the saddle.  Please start a discussion with the Lifecycle Team by contacting us.

This is done through the Lifecycle website, once you have registered.

Absolutely. We are very flexible. You can ride select legs, and we would review the suggested fund raising total accordingly. Contact us to discuss.

Yes, in order for us to comply with our event approval requirements, we are limiting the number of core riders to 10. This also ensures that we have enough places available for local riders from each of the regional towns to participate.

We will update this page as well as Facebook with some meeting points for local riders to join the Lifecycle Regional Ride core riders.

“I am a 63 year old retired public servant who enjoys endurance mountain bike riding. I participated in the 2013 Lifecycle event as a challenge with a target of completing 500km over the 48 hours of the event – a target that I achieved and raised over $1500 in doing so. I found the Lifecycle event to be well run and a good charity to be involved in.”

“I have been passionately involved in Lifecycle over the past three years in support of the Leukaemia Foundation, and I am very excited about being able to participate in the inaugural Lifecycle Regional Ride.  Like all aspects of Lifecycle, we strongly encourage all areas of the community to get involved, and I look forward to meeting with the Southern NSW communities as we complete the Lifecycle Regional Ride, and to have a chat with riders that join us when we ride into each of the towns.”
