Velothon Team Experience
Lifecycles Travel has teamed up with the Australian Cycling Academy to create the Velothon Team Experience. We invite you to be part of the ACA team for the Velothon Sunshine Coast cycling event from the 18th – 21st July. Ride with the ACA on their home soil.
Designed for the keen recreational cyclist who would love to experience an amateur multi-stage cycling event with the same level of support & organisation that the pro teams get. As part of this 3 night 4 day trip you’ll receive transfers to & from each stage, ride with real ACA team riders, have your equipment cleaned & ready for each day & learn from their professional race directors. Above all you’ll share the ‘roads, the glory & the banter’ with a fun group of like-minded people, creating memories that you’ll never forget.
On top of this will be our popular trip features, including: pre-race breakfast packs, fun restaurant group dinners, professional sports massage, a Velothon team jersey, daily kit laundry, Velothon race entry & as always our hard-working staff dedicated to ensuring you have the ride of your life.

Top reasons to join this trip:
The organisers have taken what we think are the best elements of a Gran Fondo style race and transplanted this format in to the winterless Sunshine Coast. 3 fantastic routes, well managed roads, King of the Mountain and Sprint stages throughout, all combined with a perfect riding climate and sublime scenery.
The Novotel Twin Waters is a 4 star beachfront resort set between the ocean and river and positioned as one of the top Sunshine Coast accommodation destinations. Enjoy endless on-site activities including outdoor pool and spa. Amidst 36 hectares of natural bushland you’ll have to keep your eyes out for bouncing kangaroos.
You’ll need the fuel! So we’ll give you a big breakfast each morning at the hotel, have race nutrition on the go and take you out for meals in the evenings to the Sunshine Coasts lively restaurants.
The Australian Cycling Academy is committed to helping young, developing cyclists to reach their potential, so that they can lay the foundations for personal success and life balance throughout their sporting career and beyond. The team consists of young highly motivated riders who are a pleasure to chat to on and off the bike. Meeting these guys will be a highlight of the experience.

The Sunshine coast
The Sunshine Coast encompasses beach resorts, surf spots and rural hinterland in south-east Queensland, Australia. Only a short distance from Brisbane, it stretches from the coastal city of Caloundra to the Cooloola section of the Great Sandy National Park, home to multicoloured sand dunes, mangrove forests, and shallow lakes. There are boutique shops, beautiful waterways, and walking and cycling trails through an abundance of National Park. We’ll show you the best of the region.
