Bupa mini tour for kids

During the Santos Tour Down Under, 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 on the Stage 6 circuit just hours before the pros. Riders will be kitted out with an official t-shirt and rider number, riding a section 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.

Entry includes

  • Exclusive access to the Stage 6 circuit
  • Bupa mini tour for kids t-shirt to wear while riding and to keep 
  • Chance for the kids to meet their cycling superheroes at the event launch
  • Refreshments 
  • Gift bag
