Lifecycle Spring Challenge 7th-8th November

 Spring Challenge
250km in two days


Join us for a full weekend of riding.

Saturday 7th – Sunday 8th November.

Leaving 0630 from the Lifecycle car park.


We’ll depart Lifecycle and head south to Logan Village via Woodridge.  From Logan Village we
continue south to Tamborine Village and then take a left turn towards Canungra. 
Once at Canungra the  steady climb to O'Reillys National Park begins and continue
for 30km before a final sharp pinch in the last 0.5km helps greet you to the summit of the climb.

 O’Reilly’s is one of the most beautiful climbs in the world with unique rainforest sections and switchbacks all over a very pleasant gradient.

 Most of the ride to the base of the climb, will be done as a group, followed by a support vehicle.  After  a short stop in Canungra we anticipate the group will break up and we’ll do the remainder of the ride individually or in smaller groups.  There will be some riders who may wish to power ahead while others may want to take it a little slower or stop for some short rests up the Mountain to enjoy the views.  There's no pressure as we’ll all reunite at the top!

Once at O'Reilly's we’ll book into our accommodation which is once again, the Luxury Mountain villas.  Each villa is fully self-contained with full kitchen and features modern designer decor interiors (including high definition LCD TV) opening onto expansive private decks with outdoor spa bath and BBQ.

On Sunday morning we’ll roll out early (0700) for the long and beautiful descent down the O'Reillys mountain to Canungra. If you’d like to ride down at an easier pace you’re free to leave a little earlier than the main group. Once again everyone will descend at their own pace and we will stop to re group and take breakfast at a Cafe in Canungra.  From Canungra we’ll head northeast to Beenleigh and then cycle north on the service roads beside the South East freeway and back to Lifecycle.
