The Santos Festival of Cycling


Lap up the atmosphere of Australia's premier festival destination while the professionals battle it out on South Australia's roads with the Santos Festival of Cycling!

The 11-day Santos Festival of Cycling gives you the chance to see and enjoy the amazing sights of Adelaide with something for everyone from casual observer to cycling fanatic. 

On ya bike!

The Subaru Breakaway Series will get your heartrate pumping on two wheels, with the Challenge Tour presented by The Advertiser testing cycling enthusiasts on Stage 5 from Glenelg to Strathalbyn, while the Mini Tour for Kids or Family Ride  offer families something more leisurely at the Down Under Classic.

Wanting a more adrenalised challenge? Register for free to take part in the Australian premiere of StreetVelodrome at the City of Adelaide Tour Village  or check out our daily Group Rides.

City of Adelaide Tour Village

The latest in cycling technology, apparel and two-wheeled propulsion are on show in the City of Adelaide Tour Village, but it's not just for cycling fanatics - simply come down to enjoy a meal and a drink in the shade with your mates while absorbing Adelaide's perfect January days.

(But we won't blame you for swinging by the Grinders Café Zone in the morning for a quick espresso before your daily ride!)

Premium Food and Wine

For those who like the finer things in life, there are fantastic food and wine experiences in cool comfort while you watch the riders blast past your viewing spot - check out DeTours or our Hospitality  offerings to find something up your alley.

Legends' Night Dinner and Platinum Club Tour

And for fans of sporting greats, there's the annual Legends' Night Dinner, where we bring the big names of professional cycling for the Santos Tour Down Under's night of nights. You can also enjoy the evening as part of a full suite of Tour experience thanks to the Platinum Club Tour

Party your nights away

Adelaide's favourite high streets host street parties on the night or eve of their host stages, where you can relax with a glass of premium South Australian wine while listening to local music and other unique sights of our local areas. This year Port Adelaide's Commercial Road, The Parade at Norwood, King William Road in Unley and Jetty Road Glenelg all host street parties.
