DAILY RIDES

DAILY RIDES

The temperature in Adelaide around the Santos Tour Down Under always seems to be perfect for cycling! With that in mind, here’s what we have planned:

To celebrate the 2020 Santos Tour Down Under, CyclingTips will be hosting morning daily rides from Monday to Saturday, and of course the big one out to Willunga on Sunday. We’ll be taking in some of Adelaide’s most iconic routes, including the twisty Gorge Road, scenic Mt Lofty, the Strava-famous Corkscrew Road climb, and iconic Willunga Hill. Those of you who are new to riding in South Australia are in for a treat.

The rides are structured in such a way that you can kick off your day with a ride and coffee before watching the stage, checking out the village, or doing some more riding!
