ABOUT
LifeCycle Adventures Logo

We’d like to share our passion for wild and remote places and travelling by simple human powered means. We feel that there is no better way to connect to the epic and varied landscapes of Australia, the fascinating wildlife and indigenous culture than to ride a bicycle and camp under the stars. When one travels simply it often seems the experience is more intense.

We facilitate bicycle adventures through the spectacular Australian wilderness, whether desert, coast or high country. Our two compact four wheel drive buses are capable of going anywhere and carrying the gear to support adventurous riders who can leave the logistics, camping gear and planning to us.

We provide great food and good quality camping gear and it’s reassuring to know we’ve got your back if conditions get too tough, your bike has a problem, or you simply want a break to ride in the bus.

We make it possible to get out of your normal comfort zone and experience extraordinary adventure while accumulating memories that will surely last a lifetime.

Adventure is a big part of our trips. Sometimes track conditions change or creek crossings may be difficult, or we just want to explore a new place, but as a small group of no more than 10 clients, we have the flexibility to adapt to varying conditions or client needs. The small group size is also in line with our philosophy of sustainable travel and leaving as little impact as possible.

Come and enjoy the fun and camaraderie of like-minded people, while camping under the stars, experiencing ancient landscapes, enjoying wildlife encounters and doing what we love best… riding bikes under the big Australian sky.

Logistics and Support

Cath Hew 

has also spent much of her life in wilderness and remote areas. Her early family life involved epic 4WD trips through the Australian Outback and desert regions in a time when this was not commonplace and definitely planted the seeds that led to a life of adventure.  As captain of her own sailing yacht, she’s been taking like-minded adventurers down to Antarctica for the last 17 years and understands well the logistics and care of clients in remote locations….especially the importance of great food! Cath also loves bike touring and for her, Mundabiddy, Gibb River road and Mongolia are a start!
