Santos Tour Down Under The Best Cycling Week of the Year
Our 2020 tour has been cancelled due to unforseen circumstances
The Region: The cycling terrain around Adelaide is considered by many to be the best in Australia and there are good reasons why more and more cyclists are falling under the spell. Within a few short kms of the CBD you have climbs, beautiful country roads and flat coastal stretches, taking in the Adelaide Hills, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale and expansive coastal terrain all the way to Victor Harbour. Iconic climbs to conquer such as; Wilunga Hill, Norton Summit, Mt Lofty, Corksrew Rd, Checker Hill, Gorge Rd and Belair. A week of cycling in Adelaide will have you planning your next trip before you even board the plane home.
Adelaide is a delightful city at the best of times but really shines during the TDU in January. Renowned for its festivals all year round, it is no surprise that Adelaide really puts on a show for the world’s best cyclists. A vibrant and energetic atmosphere, street parties almost every night, high class dining and a wine selection that matches the great regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy in France. We are spoilt for choice in terms of off-bike activities, from the beautiful gardens and pathways that line the River Torrens to the vibrant energy of Rundle Mall, Adelaide is perfect place to spend your afternoons and evenings “recovering” from the days on the bike. We will dine at some of Adelaide’s best restaurants during our stay.
