Byron Retreat, 2017

“A very real rival to the likes of Thompsons, Grupetto or All Trails…..a wonderful combination of rides, food & experiences!”

Byron Retreat, 2017

“Chris & Alice of Lifecycles led a superb trip. They assessed the fitness & interests of our group & came up with the tour that fitted our needs. They quickly managed unexpected events like road closures and found new routes. The 12 days was beautifully organised from interesting coffee stops, delicious winery lunches, in-house dinners & well-chosen restaurants. The cycling routes chosen were superb undulating panoramic roads with little traffic. I have been on top-rated cycle trips in Europe, Morocco, NZ & India. This trip was an interesting & varied as any overseas trip but without jet lag & large amounts of money. They ran a fabulous trip – could not be faulted – 10 out of 10!!!”

Scenic Rim Grand Tour, 2017

“The Lifecycles tour of the Byron hinterland, Border Ranges and Scenic Rim was very well planned and carefully organised with a variety of activities included. The accommodation and catering was perfect for us. Chris and Alice were excellent tour leaders and thoughtful hosts. They quickly and calmly adapted to any unexpected changes of circumstances on the road. We enjoyed wonderful riding, spectacular scenery, interesting venues and great company. Biking with Lifecycles is highly recommended. We will be returning for other tours.”

Scenic Rim Grand Tour, 2017

“I thoroughly enjoyed the Tour de Byron cycling trip. It was well planned and organised and when changes needed to be made it seemed to be done effortlessly. The trip catered well for our ability. Communication for the group worked well with WhatsApp.”

“Lifecycles Travel is simply FANTASTIC. Full credit to Chris, Alice and support crew. Very helpful with bike transport, storage and making sure that all riders are fully catered for during the entire trip. Loved the breakfasts. Alice’s homemade bircher muesli was simply YUM. Plenty of fruit, snack bars. Great camaraderie amongst all riders during this trip. Dinner venues were great, the food was superb. Overall, a great job by both Chris, Alice and the supporting crew. Congratulations and well done.”

“Chris, Alice & Nash did an absolutely brilliant job of planning and executing a once in a lifetime cycling tour which is the envy of all those who have seen it. The rides and group of people were exceptional, the accommodation, food and logistics were done exceptionally well and I would have no hesitation in recommending others jump on board for their next destination”.

Italy Grand Tour 2018

“Thank you, Chris and Alice, for organising such a fantastic and wonderful cycling experience. The rides were magnificent, the scenery was spectacular but most of all, the company and friendships forged over the trip will last forever”.

Italy Grand Tour 2018

“It was my first time to Italy and I had the best time and it will stay with me forever. A big thanks go to Chris and Alice for their incredible support, daily agenda, and the information night held at Park Bikes two months prior to our departure. Excellent night, was able to meet the other riders attending this trip and try on the cycling kit. They took care of everything from transfers, hotels, cycling, our bikes, our luggage, timings, briefings, wine tour, lunches, dinners, free time, twin shared accommodation, support vehicles, and much more. I loved it when I found it tough Chris and Alice were there with open arms for hugs. Absolutely professional about everything they do. I came on this trip knowing a couple of the guys and by the end, they were lifelong friends. I would recommend this trip to anyone who enjoys cycling, prepared cycling agendas each day, spectacular views and having fun. The rest is up to you”.
