Chateau

The Chateau is back. Bigger. Brighter. And burning hotter than ever. 74 Frome St Adelaide. January 10-20

We’re back. And this time for the entire Tour. Black Sheep and Specialized will open the gates of the Chateau on the dawn of the Women’s Tour and only close ’em when the King of Willunga has been crowned. If you’re new to the Adelaide experience, then the Chateau is where it’s at. Expect a party atmosphere, good coffee, wet beers and a hot colab kit. Plus group rides, retail therapy, demo Roval wheels and a pub garden of epic proportions.

RIDES

Fast Rides

If measuring yourself against the pros and claiming Strava KOMs / QOMs is you’re thing then we’ve got some rides right up your Adelaide alley. Hold on tight.

Social Rides

Like to keep it social then there’s plenty of Chateau Rides to suit you. All rides will have Fast, Medium and Social bunches save for Black Friday which is basically a beer run!

EVENTS

Sun up

For early starters, we’ve got group rides almost every day, coffee by Sundays, the Women’s Gala and cycling-specific stretching brought to you by Yogeur.

Sun down

Nocturnal animals will thrive at the Chateau. Our after dark events were infamous around town in 2018 and you can expect similar shenanigans this time round.

SOCIALISE

Before your Ride

Chateau Coffee Ride

Sunny Coast brand Sundays will be serving coffees and smiles at the Chateau all day, every day so be sure to start and end your ride like a world champion.

After your Ride

There are beer gardens and then there is the Chateau. Ours is a courtyard fit for a King (or Queen). Sip down a cool one, recount long stories about short rides and soak up the summer vibes.

SHOP

Black Sheep

Touch and feel our latest threads. We will have our Essentials TC19 on hand as well as two  Special Edition Chateau kits and other exclusive colab swag.

Specialized

Test ride performance. The Chateau will house a full complement of the Roval Performance road wheels for you to demo – get on our wheel and feel the difference. The 2019 S-Works Venge, one of the fast bikes in the pro peloton, is also yours to demo for the day if you think you can keep up. Booking essential.
