About the Bupa Challenge Tour

The 2017 Bupa Challenge Tour was held on Friday 20 January 2017 from Norwood to Campbelltown.

The Bupa Challenge Tour is the Santos Tour Down Under's annual mass-participation ride. It takes place on the morning of Bupa Stage 4, along the same route as the professional riders, just hours before the pros take to the road.

There were four starting locations providing various challenges. Each year, cyclists are encouraged to tackle the ride that's right for them.
