Byron Bay Triathlon: the place, the race, the party

That pretty well sums it up, three great reasons why you need to come and do this year’s event held on May 7, largely considered as one of the friendliest, most scenic triathlons in Australia. Iconic in destination, with a spectacular ocean swim, combined with Byron’s much-loved party atmosphere…it’s easy to see why the Byron Bay Tri is one of Australia’s favourite end of season celebrations and the last remaining major Saturday arvo Tri.

Since 1995, NX Sports (the team who also put on the Brisbane Cycling Festival, Tweed Enduro & Kingscliff Tri) have been growing this amazing event held on the Saturday afternoon of the Mother’s Day weekend each year. Whilst best known for its traditional Olympic race, the Sprint, Teams, Kids and Aquabike categories are certainly new growing events and make this an event that is suitable for anyone to come and try. 

“The water is crystal clear you can see schools of fish, the spectators cheer you on every corner and there is a pub less than 100m from the finish. Bonza!”

If you haven’t already booked in your entry for this year’s Byron Tri, now is the time to commit as entries close next month on April 28. With winter rapidly approaching further south in late Autumn, it’s the perfect time to migrate north and enjoy one more weekend of warm subtropical weather in sunny Byron Bay. 

Lifecycles Travel will again be supporting the Byron Tri this year with our comprehensive Byron Bay Bike Hire & concierge service.

Rent a full carbon fibre Trek Domane SL5 Disc from us and we will fit your bike to you at our new bike shop in Habitat. All bikes come complete with pedals, a helmet and are fitted to your personal measurements. We are offering our hire fleet to Byron Bay Triathletes in the days leading up to the tri, so that you can warm up your legs before the event. Those hiring a bike are able to pick it up as early as Thursday morning for no additional fee. Following the event on Saturday afternoon, we’ll be at the shop to collect your bike so you can roll straight on through to your post-race party.
