Byron Bay Cycle Club has recognised Steve Slee’s  achievements and performance within the club and his contribution to the sport and community by naming him Cyclist of the Year 2016.

Steve is the epitome of a true sportsman, encouraging others and is always the first to help out and volunteer his time at club and local events.

Steve started cycling at the age of 48 when he entered the Byron Bay ­Triathlon ­using his mountain bike. After this event he made a decision to buy a road bike and ­absolutely loved it.

Since that day he has competed in many triathlons, road races, mountain bike races, off-road triathlons and criteriums, often finishing in the top ten.
