Our Team Concept Cycling Programs have been developed utilising our combined 40+ years of knowledge working in the corporate and elite sport sectors. With exceptional management, organisational and hospitality skills along with our experienced and up to date sport
science knowledge our programs offer clients a first class service that we are extremely proud of. We are confident that each individual will come away from our programs inspired and motivated.

The Concept
Solo Bike has based this concept on our insight of the benefits and value of engaging leadership groups into the sport of road cycling.
Central to our approach is that the environment is considered and delivered as a team environment rather than group. Further we seek to adopt the best development strategies and practices from elite team sport, recreating a high performance environment for business and community leaders to excel.

The Team Solo Bike Program is implemented within Solo Bike Team Concept Tours (Europe) and Solo Bike Team Concept Camps (Australia). Our belief in this concept and product has been reinforced by discussions with respected business leaders and elite performance coaches who likewise recognise the enormous growth of road cycling group participation within the Australian corporate sector, and consequent need for product service advancement.
Program Vision
We aspire to cultivate experiences that will provide ideal opportunities for leadership development and self-accomplishment.
Significantly our team concept vision provides a scope beyond a limited experience, thus offering unlimited opportunities for further advancement via new experiences and opportunities to develop and accomplish ambitious goals within our program offerings.

Team Concept Camps and Tours
Team Solo Bike programs can provide local and international cycling experiences for business and community leaders. The itineraries offered intend to provide unique opportunities for professional/personal development and accomplishment.

Team Concept Camps
Local weekend itineraries that provide opportunities for supported group cycling and specialist coaching for performance and leadership
development. Camp locations include Bright and Inverloch, Victoria with an itinerary which includes team rides, performance and
leadership programs, performance (mind and body) sessions and Organisational and Team Strategy. Other camp locations will be added
to the schedules in time.

Team Concept Tours

The most important resources required in developing and providing a successful program are the coaches and service providers within
the Solo Bike team.
