What is Life Cycle for CanTeen?

Life Cycle is a registered charity which runs events for OnRoad and OffRoad cyclists in WA. The OnRoad cycling event started in 1998 and is held on the weekend after the long weekend in March, when we ride from Perth to Busselton over three days. Our OffRoad event started in 2012 and takes place in October each year. So far, we have travelled the length of the Munda Biddi Trail and visited the Margaret River, Collie, Pemberton and Denmark areas.

Life Cycle is the biggest community fundraiser for Canteen in Australia. Canteen members, volunteers and staff participate in the OnRoad, giving riders the opportunity to meet and hear from the people we are supporting.

Life Cycle is run by a dedicated group of volunteers on two committees.

Life Cycle for CanTeen Inc (ABN 27 251 421 905) is registered as a charity with the ACNC.
What is Canteen?

What is Canteen?

Canteen is the only organisation in Australia dedicated to providing tailored support for young people aged 12-25 who are impacted by cancer. Through Canteen, they learn to explore and deal with their feelings about cancer, connect with other young people in the same boat and, if they’ve been diagnosed themselves, Canteen provides specialist, youth-specific treatment teams. 

Your contributions will support Canteen WA in supporting Young People through providing connections with other young people in similar situations through events and programs; free counselling and individual support; 24/7 online support communities and specialist treatment and support services for young cancer patients in hospitals.

Spirit of the Ride Award.

Congratulations to THIRL MILLACHIP for earning this year’s Spirit of the Ride Award.

Thirl had ridden 13 OnRoad events and her husband Paul had ridden 2. They retired and travelled extensively for 2 years. Tragically Paul lost his life to a shark in November 2021. Thirl decided to ride again this year in memory of Paul. 
A huge outpouring of respect for both Paul and Thirl resulted in a massive fundraising total of over $37,000.
Thirl also took up again her role as Lead Marshal of Green Group, which she does admirably and with great respect from her fellow riders who were quick to nominate Thirl for this award.
Congratulations Thirl and well done on completing a mentally and physically tough ride while still thinking of and caring for others in your group.
