Bupa mini tour for kids

mini tour for kids

Kids aged from six to 12 can ride on the UCI World Tour track, just like the world's cycling superheroes!

The Bupa mini tour for kids is your child's opportunity to ride one of the Santos Tour Down Under’s official UCI World Tour tracks just hours before the pros. Choose to either tackle the Be Safe Be Seen MAC Stage 6 circuit in the Adelaide CBD, or for the first time, Stage 1’s finish line circuit in Lyndoch!

Riders will be kitted out with an official t-shirt and rider number, riding a section of one of the official 2018 Santos Tour Down Under race route. 

Kids will be grouped according to age, with each group allocated 20 minutes to ride as many laps of the special mini tour track as they can. 

This is the little ones' big chance to show off their cycling skills while being cheered on by the Santos Tour Down Under crowd lining the race track.

  • Exclusive access to either the Be Safe Be Seen MAC Stage 6 circuit, or Stage 1 Lyndoch circuit
