Family and friends gathered at the airport this afternoon to welcome home the Lifecycle team after they completed a 1,900-kilometre bike ride from Brisbane to Melbourne.

12 out of the 33 cyclists had to pull out of the challenge because of injuries.

They managed to raise €130,000 for the Mater Dei Hospital Renal Unit.

The Lifecycle has become an annual event since it was first held in 1999.
