For a small city, there’s a lot of cycling events on offer around Adelaide. Enough to make a keen cyclist (like me) consider relocating there if I could find a job!
There are some fantastic rides that are based within Adelaide itself, like Ride for a Reason, the Challenge Tour from the Santos Tour Down Under, the Fleurieu Fondo along the Adelaide Southern Expressway (minus the cars) and a women’s ride with Gear Up Girl Adelaide.
There’s also some multi-day rides that start in Adelaide and either loop back or finish at a different point, like the SA Discovery Tour at Kangaroo Island, a chance to ride the iconic TDU climbs with the Adelaide Smiddy Challenge, a chance to ride through the remote Flinders Rangers with the Outback Odyssey Ride, or experience some luxury with the Velovino through the Adelaide wineries and hills.
So have a look at our online cycling event calendar, and see if you can find some Adelaide cycling events to suit!
