Our trips allow you to choose a suitable ride each day. Alternative ride options are available on most days. We use a consistent ride rating to help you choose your ride. We rate each ride on various factors; distance, total climbing, intensity and altitude. The table below is a guide to our ride rating system.

Unfortunately, we can’t forecast the weather when designing our rides, but your trip leader will advise you on any precautions. 

DistanceSHORT: less than 30km
MEDIUM: between 30km and 80km (depending on the total climbing).
LONG: more than 80 km
AscentTotal climbing (ascending) for the day, anything over 2000m is a big day
IntensitySome rides may have time constraints. Our rides vary from EASY, MODERATE to HARD.
AltitudeSome of our rides may go into alpine areas where thinner air affects your intake of oxygen.

Santos Tour Down Under Stages

Santos TDU 2020 will have a total of 6 stages, plus the Down Under Classic. See the race everyday.

Adelaide is a great place for this cycling event, and a great place to ride.

A city large enough to have all of the facilities you could want.

But it is also small enough for cyclists to take-over the precinct for an entire week.

Don’t miss the Santos Tour Down Under 2020

Last year we saw the famous Old Willunga Hill stage move to Stage 6, the final day. It created an exciting finish and the atmosphere was incredible. Our guests enjoy a privately catered gourmet BBQ at the finish area. We get you there to witness the celebration of the winners of the Santos Tour Down Under.

The week-long event brings the top World Tour professional cycling teams to race on the streets of Adelaide and regional South Australia each January. Up for grabs are important UCI World Tour points and the Santos Tour Down Under Ochre Leader’s Jersey.
