You’ll be sharing the elevator, lounge area and the bar with the world’s cycling stars, media and the cycling fraternity at the 2019 Santos Tour Down Under. For this week, the Hilton Adelaide becomes the cycling centre of Australia. 2019 marks the event’s 21st year having grown every year, as has the interest of overseas riders. It is a UCI event like no other.
Your Bikestyle Tours trip starts at Adelaide Airport where our guides will meet you and transfer the short distance to Race HQ Hilton Adelaide, where we spend the next 4 nights. The Hilton Adelaide is the only location during a Pro Tour event where you can see the stars of cycling in a relaxed atmosphere.
On arrival at our Race HQ our Bikestyle Tours guides will assist your check in and assemble your bike. Whatever help you may need, your caring guides will be on hand. Depending on your arrival time, join us for a short ride through Adelaide this afternoon. Otherwise, take a stroll and explore the city of Adelaide, or the Tour Down Under Tour Village and Bike Expo.
Shortly after returning to the Hilton weâ€™ll head out to a local venue for our official welcome. We will be joined also by our guests travelling with us for the 9-day week-long trip. Together we’ll enjoy some drinks and canapés before dinner. Afterwards, youâ€™ll be free to dine at a restaurant nearby.
