Gearing Up For The Road Back – Cycling Along Not Alone with Lifecycles Travel

Taking it literally at Lifecycles Travel, we are travelling the road back and invite you along for the ride.

Like you I’m sure, we put the recent lockdown to good use. The slower life allowed us to reflect on what we had achieved in the last three years since starting Lifecycles Travel. We were able to reassess our goals. Inspired by the agility and innovation of so many local and small businesses, we decided to put our minds to ‘the road back’ and how we can bring safe, socially distant active experiences into a future of new local cycling adventures.

Corona virus has long been considered a battle on two fronts – the virus and the economy. 

Whilst we are now coming out of the woods in terms of the actual virus, we are all still feeling the economic effects of this situation. From many keen cyclists, that has meant the cancellation of their dream European cycling holiday in 2020 and with that a sense of deflation at not having that goal to look forward to, train for and continue to motivate them to be the healthiest version of themselves.

So we set out to offer a range of world-class cycling tours, in our home Byron Bay, that you can experience right now. With domestic travel restrictions about to be lifted, where else than the warm, tropical, ‘wellness’ capital of Australia would you rather be? The Byron Bay hinterland is arguably the best kept secret in Australian cycling and is the perfect addition to Byron’s famous selection of restaurants, hotels & AirBnb’s.

Cycling is a safe activity to transition back into travel.

Lifecycles Travel offers an impressive range of cycling tours and services, ranging from single day bike hire & guided rides to week-long fully supported cycling holidays. Beginner riders can learn new skills under the tuition of our tour guides and become confident cyclists whilst using our premium Trek carbon fibre bikes. For more advanced riders, there’s an endless amount of rolling hinterland roads within reach of Byron, and with the recent addition of our 3 dayBorder Ranges Gravel Adventure‘ tour, there’s no shortage of challenge for you to relish.

Introducing the Hinterland Overnighter Tour: this socially-distant self-guided experience is one of the recent additions to our tours. Starting and finishing in Byron village, spend 2 days riding quiet country roads, in search of coffee stops and local cuisines, tied together with a night of secluded cabin accommodation in the majestic Byron Bay hinterland, a gourmet dinner basket and your luggage transported for you.

All tours are based out of the popular north coast holiday town of Byron Bay, which is accessed via 2 airports as well as the recently upgraded Pacific Highway, so within easy reach of any Australian domestic traveller.

Staying ahead of the Covid-19 curve.

Life is not really operating like any other day right now. Impacts on travel and where and when we can go are still grey.
That’s why we have decided to introduce a temporary cancellation policy. It’s a policy to give us confidence in doing our part, organising great trips, and gives you the opportunity to start planning your next holiday. Actually have something to look forward to without financial stress or worry. Consider this cancellation policy your trusty spares kit for the somewhat bumpy roads ahead.

Here are the details of our cancellation policy. You can find this in full on our Terms and Conditions page here.

Covid-19 ‘cancel at any time’ Cancellation Policy

Due to the circumstances of COVID-19 and its impacts on the travel industry, Lifecycles Travel has introduced a temporary cancellation policy.

The policy will cover:

Any purchase of domestic travel including rides, holidays or bike hire purchased with the intent to conduct travel between 1st May 2020 and 31st December 2020 can be cancelled and customers will be issued a full refund.

Any purchase of international travel including Italy Grand Tours purchased with the intent to conduct travel between 1st May 2020 and 31st December 2021 can be cancelled and customers will be issued a full refund.

Customers can ‘cancel at any time’ and receive a refund if COVID-19 has directly impacted their ability to engage with Lifecycles Travel and their cycling tourism products. This includes government-imposed travel bans and restrictions, sickness or poor health and/or unforeseeable impacts of COVID-19.
