As part of the Santos Tour Down Under, the 2023 Challenge Tour will run on Friday 20 January 2023, between Norwood and Campbelltown.

The Challenge Tour will provide over 3000 riders with the opportunity to experience a stage of the Santos Tour Down Under prior to the professional race event. Bicycle Network has been appointed by the South Australian Tourism Commission as Event Service Provider.

To minimise the risk to all road users during this time, there will be changed traffic conditions along the route which will include; speed reductions and full road closures in the City of Norwood, Adelaide Hills, Barossa and City of Campbelltown local government areas.

Where possible, access to and around high traffic areas in these regions has been maintained. Full details of the changed traffic conditions are outlined in the table and map below, and designated vehicle crossing points through the road closures are also identified on the map.

Emergency Services Access

Bicycle Network, on behalf of the South Australian Tourism Commission, works closely with the emergency services, including the CFS, in planning the event, and can confirm that emergency vehicle access will be available at all times during the changed traffic conditions.

Additionally, the event will not proceed if a Catastrophic fire danger rating is declared for the region on Friday 20 January 2023.
