JOIN US FOR AUSTRALIA’S ONLY MENS CYCLING & MENTAL FITNESS RETREATS!

We are for 40+ year old men who enjoy cycling for it’s social, physical and mental health benefits – and the mateship that comes with the cycling lifestyle.

 

❌ We don’t give a shit about VO2, FTP, training zones, or Strava KOM’s.

 

✅ We do like new bikes, new kit and a bit of overpriced, overhyped ‘bling’…but hey, we’re only human 🤣

 

We ride to enjoy each others company, to have a laugh, to doing something good for our health and to celebrate the fact that we are committed enough to our health to be out on our bikes, wearing lycra in public!

 

We totally understand and embrace our unofficial motto:

 

🚴‍♂️ Mateship in Motion.

 

We are also aware of the terrible state of mens health in Australia and are, in our own individual way, each looking to buck those trends for the good of our family and friends.

 

❌ We don’t want to be one of the 2 in 3 Aussie men who are overweight or obese.

 

❌ We don’t want to be one of the 3 in 4 Aussie heart attacks.

 

❌ We don’t want to be on of the the 7 in 9 Aussie suicides…

 

❌ We don’t want to be a part of the ‘loneliness epidemic’ that is afflicting Aussie men.

 

So we’re stepping up for ourselves and our mates.
We’re setting the right example for other blokes to follow.

 

We’re making time for our wellness NOW, so we don’t have to make time for our ILLNESS in the future.

 

And we’re doing it whilst enjoying a ride, a coffee, a beer and the good old fashioned joy of Aussie mateship.

"FOR ME THERE'S DANNY BEFORE THE CAMP AND DANNY AFTER THE CAMP, I FEEL LIKE I'VE GOT THE TOOLS TO BE A BETTER VERSION OF MYSELF NOW, SO IN THAT REGARD, THE CAMP WAS MORE THAN WORTH IT, LET ALONE THE CYCLING GAINS I MADE."

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW FIT DO I HAVE TO BE?

If you ride for fun, family, fitness, friendship and health – you’re our kind of ‘cyclist’.

Our events are tailored to the ‘social’, non-competitive cyclist. cycleWELL events are NOT high performance cycling camps for elite, competitive cyclists.   They are health, wellbeing and personal development retreats tailored to men and women who enjoy cycling and use it to maintain and improve their physical and mental wellbeing.

Most of our event attendees average 2-3 rides per week of around 1.5 – 3 hours in duration. They ride between 100km-250km per week in total, either by themselves or on small group rides.

HOW MUCH TRAINING SHOULD I DO LEADING UP TO THE EVENT?

As we have said, cycleWELL events are for social riders. Ideally, you will do a minimum of 150km a week for at least 4 weeks before you attend an event. Of course everyone is different and you know your ability, experience and fitness level better than we will…

Remember it is NOT a ‘Boot Camp’ for elite cyclists. We have a ‘no drop’ policy on all of our group rides. Our goal is that every attendee completes every ride at their own pace. All of our longer and more difficult rides are fully supported and we allow ample time to complete them.    

WHAT DOES THE TICKET PRICE INCLUDE?

The investment you make in your ticket covers the majority of expenses for the duration of the event, including; twin-share accommodation, most meals, all workshops and coaching.

You will need to pay for your drinks (alcoholic and non alcoholic)  at our dinners and social functions.

Limited accommodation upgrades are available at most retreats (pending availability) and you can even hire a bike for the event if you don’t want to bring your own.

DO YOU HAVE ‘RIDER SUPPORT’ ON THE RIDES?

Yes. We will provide support vehicles including mechanical, sag and first aid for our major rides.  We will have one safety car for every ride. We also have experienced and registered ride leaders on the road within the group – to provide an additional layer of ‘on-ride’ assistance and ride guidance.

WHAT IS THE MENTAL WELLBEING TRAINING LIKE?

We are proud to be a Licensed Trainer of Australia’s most comprehensive and evidence-based mental wellbeing program – ‘BeWell Plan‘.

We provide a ‘taste’ of the BeWell Plan at our cycling events.

We also offer our retreat attendee’s a significantly discounted option to complete the full 5 week, 12 hour, live and facilitated, online Be Well Plan with us after they have attended a retreat and had a feel for what to expect.
