Ladies’ Night

Friday 11. 7pm – til late. Free entry
Oh yes, it’s ladies’ night. And the feeling’s right. To celebrate the fact we’re down for the entire Tour, we’re throwing our doors open for a good ol’ fashioned ladies’ night. Minus the lecherous men and cheap bubbles. But there’ll be $10 Aperol Spritz and plenty of Kool & The Gang!

The After Pre Party

Sunday 13. 7pm – til close. Free entry
The Women’s Tour deserves just a bigger send off as the men’s so we’re hosting the unofficial official After Party to celebrate the women’s achievements and welcome the men who are about to embark on a big week. All welcome. Let’s have some fun and share a toast with the women.

Welcome to Adelaide

Tuesday 15. 7pm – til late. Free entry
You’ve just arrived in Adelaide for the men’s race. And you don’t know your arse from your elbow. More pressing; you’re hungry, thirsty and want to plan tomorrow’s ride with your mates. Cue, the Chateau Welcome to Adelaide event. And $6 Pirate Life pints. Genius!

Yoga for Cyclists

Wednesday 16. 7am – 8am. Free entry
What’s good for Peter Sagan is good for you. Set yourself up for a big week of riding. Join us for a stretch session with former pro cyclist turned wellness guru Nicole Moerig. Good vibes only. All welcome. Limited spots. Lycra wearing encouraged!

The Classic Party

Thursday 17. 6pm – til late. Free entry
It’s the After Party after The Classic, the ultimate not-a-race sportif since, well, last year. You don’t have to take part in The Classic to come to The Classic After Party. In fact, it’s going to be THAT hard that you’re better off waiting at the bar and laughing at everyone as they come in.

DJ from 6pm til late. Beers and food served ALL night.

CLOSING PARTY | SATURDAY 19 JAN | 7PM – CLOSE

People are still talking about last year’s Lycra Party which closed out festivities at the Big Race in Adelaide. Expect the Roller Disco to be equally infamous – with or without Peter Sagan on skates. It will be lit. And a ton of fun. Themed dress is encouraged but not expected. If you have don’t have a fluro headband or knee high gym socks then just bring some damn good vibes and the best dance moves you have in your repertoire.

DJ from 7pm. Good times til late. The best party of the week.
