Inglewood Sprint

Any ride that goes through the Gorge and takes in the Corkscrew Climb is alright by us! The fact you get to see the Stage 1 Sprint points spectacle in Inglewood is just the icing on the cake. Start and finishing at the Chateau … that’s the cherry!

Reunion Ride

You don’t have to have been to the Chateau before to come to the Reunion Ride. This is one of Adelaide’s best rides. Up Gorge Rd (always good); rolling hills to Lobethal; past the picturesque town of Stirling. Then up to the Mt Lofty Summit (a must do) and then down, arguably, the city’s best descent – Greenhill. Fasties can add on extra if they’re so inclined. We’ll be drinking beer!

Uraidla Finale

This is our second Stage ride of the Tour and it should be a good one. But before we take in the finishing laps of Stage 3, we’ll head to the beach (no ice cream, sorry) and follow the coast along to Brighton and up to Blackwood. We then take in Stirling and Mount Lofty before heading to see how the pros get it done.

The Classic

The Classic is open to everyone. Or least those that dare. It’s not a race, but don’t expect people to wait for you if you get dropped. Expect to get dirty, sweaty and come home with an empty tank. First male and female gets free refreshments for the whole night. Everyone else, we have The Classic Afterparty at the Chateau where you can tell all your tall stories and drink long beers.
