Featuring bars with daily knock off hour, family zones, live entertainment, leading food vendors and the opportunity to meet and greet elite international riders – it’s set to be the biggest one yet.

All will be introduced at our team presentation. It’s the best place to be to meet the riders before the remaining 9 days of action packed, highly competitive racing.
One for the cycling fans – Australia’s largest Bike Expo is coming to the City of Adelaide Tour Village. Test out the latest gadgets and technology from the biggest brands in cycling and learn from the experts – it’s a must-visit and on throughout the festival.
