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.
Check out the highlights from the 2019 program before we announce our incredible line-up for 2020.
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 the same roads as the WorldTour cyclist, while the Family Ride or Mini Tour for Kids offer families something more leisurely at the Down Under Classic.
In 2019, patrons also had the chance to take part in the Australian premiere of StreetVelodrome at the City of Adelaide Tour Village or participate in our daily Group Rides.
City of Adelaide Tour Village
The latest in cycling technology, apparel and two-wheeled propulsion will be 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.
In 2019, we had the likes of daily panel chats with Matt Keenan and the stars of the peloton, kids of all ages could race around the Australian premier of StreetVelodrome and we watched the best of Mitchelton-SCOTT's Backstage Pass on the big screen.
Stay tuned for the full lineup of festival programming in the City of Adelaide Tour Village, announced later in 2019.
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 - you'll soon be able to 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

In 2019, Port Adelaide's Commercial Road, The Parade at Norwood, King William Road in Unley and Jetty Road Glenelg all host street parties. Just wait to find out what's happening in 2020!
