Ride Holidays

RIDE Holidays have successfully organised cycling holidays for thousands of Lycra-clad Kiwis and Australians. Our holidays aren’t races. We’re often there to watch a race, not be in it. However, you will be challenged, which is why we provide a professional training program 12 weeks out from departure.

Each day there will be a choice of three rides:

  • Cappuccino – 60km
  • Latte – 80km
  • Espresso – 100km plus

We really encourage non-biking partners to join us. They are referred to as Team Macchiato. On most trips they have a separate guide & vehicle. They won’t just be watching cyclists bobbing up and down.

You won’t lose weight. We spend a lot of time to ensure that we visit the very best cafés and restaurants on offer. Yes, it’s a bike holiday, however it’s important that you experience all aspects of whichever country we’re visiting.

Clare Valley, Barossa, Adelaide Hills and the City

We’ve found the perfect mix of visiting the magnificent valleys of Clare and Barossa. Followed by the Adelaide Hills before descending upon the city for the climax of the greatest cycling race in the Southern Hemisphere. Get involved with the action and experience the thrill of seeing this world class event live!

And, it’s not all about the race. In fact, the race is a small part of a great holiday. We focus on the magnificent cycling on offer, as well as eating at the very best South Australian restaurants and cafes. You will come home having experienced the full flavour of what the region has to offer.

We have worked with clients at the TDU for the past three years to design and deliver an experience that meets the exact needs of our partners and is aimed at an organised group of friends or key contacts rather than an open to all ride.
