Adelaide has become the centre-piece for cycling professionals in Australia.
Europeans love coming to Australia.
Each year Bikestyle Tours stays at race headquarters, the Hilton Adelaide. Our guests get to rub shoulders with the cycling stars, past and present.
Adelaide is big enough for hosting a World Tour event with all of its conveniences. Yet, it is also small enough for cyclists to take over the whole city for the week during the Tour Down Under (TDU).
We may be biased, but the TDU is one of the most exciting and relaxing tours you could experience. Along with the Tour Village and Expo, there are many unique events to watch or participate in outside of the main event.
In 2018 we had our biggest and best year to date at the TDU so join us for one of the best events on the calendar.
Bikestyle Tours has been an Official Tour Specialist for the Santos Tour Down Under since its inception. We draw on our experience and local knowledge to provide you with the best that Adelaide, South Australia, and the TDU race has to offer. One of the major highlights of the trip is staying at race HQ – the Adelaide Hilton, along with all the pro-riders, cycling teams, and media.
The Official route won’t be released until August 2018 but we will once again offer our popular premium, fully supported trips. Whether you want to follow the entire week or join us for just the long weekend – you will stay at Race HQ, The Adelaide Hilton.
Pre-booking now is the only way to guarantee to secure your spot in 2019.
I'M A NON RIDER, ARE THERE SPECTATOR TRIPS?
We have trips with both riding and non-riding itineraries. The primary focus is seeing the race. On some days, we’ll visit the villages that contribute to the food and culture of South Australia.
They are great for a non-riding partner.

I'M A CYCLIST, SO HOW FIT DO I NEED TO BE?
Our premium trips cater for different riding abilities. We expect that guests have trained to prepare for their riding holiday.
Our easiest rides involve riding in a group at average speeds of more than 20km/hr (15miles/hr) on the flat.
Climbing is at your own pace.
