Today is the official rest day for the Santos Tour Down Under, so the Pro’s will head out for their training rides during the morning. This is a great time to spot the stars in our hotel lobby on their way to the village before they head out on their bikes. With some luck we may even spot them in the hills this morning on our very own ride.
Our plan is a little more social and aims to ease us into the week of cycling and great food. After breakfast we will set off on a scenic ride before rewarding your efforts with a group lunch. We’ll take one of the easier ways into the hills this morning, enjoying the shade of the trees before a final scenic stop and the fun downhill return to Adelaide. You’ll have time after your ride to freshen up before we head out for a special welcome lunch together.
The greatest thing about riding at the Santos Tour Down Under is the access to the Hills near the city. After a short warm up, you’re climbing and into the cooler temperatures and shaded roads. We’ll have short and longer ride options available today. For those not riding today, you are welcome to have the morning in Adelaide, or join us in the Adelaide Hills visiting some beautiful villages and catching up with our riders along the way.
After lingering over lunch and a few glasses of wine, the afternoon is available to you to explore Adelaide or even head down to the beach for a sunset. Tonight, in Adelaide, you can take in the unique atmosphere of the city on the eve of its biggest annual event.
