2014 Santos Tour Down Under Package

The AllTrails Backstage Pass!

Monday 20 January, 2014 to Sunday 26 January, 2014

This is our 8th Tour Down Under since 2004. After seven years of good times and great cycling at the Santos Tour Down Under, Phil, Susan and Ben from AllTrails feel very much at home in Adelaide, looking after cyclists’ needs and cheering for the riders (especially the Aussies).

Booking our unique ‘Backstage Pass’ package means that you can be assured of making the most of every minute at the event. Leave the arrangements to us – our experience, local knowledge and logistics will get you to where you need to go, when you need to get there. We provide the best advice on cycle routes, viewing locations and attractions. We even home-bake our muffins for your morning tea!

In 2014 AllTrails have secured great rooms at the Adelaide Hilton which is also the official host hotel of the UCI cycling teams, their managers and media, with the Tour Village and Bike Expo directly opposite. We will enjoy a week of great cycling and excellent race viewing as we follow the world’s best cyclists.

Be joined on the road by professional cycle coach David Heatley who will be offering coaching tips and advice in a casual environment. Our daily transfers allow you to see race starts, stage finishes, sprints, hydration feed station and King of the Mountain. Some days we will cycle on stage routes and other days we will cycle around Adelaide surrounds before heading out to the pro races as spectators.

Two lucky participants from our tour group get a chance to win an exclusive seat in a Parade Car for Stage 6. Throw t-shirts and giveaways to the screaming crowds. Your chance of winning will be approximately 1 in 10 (maybe better!).

Running cycle tours since 1997, we know what cyclists want, so join us at this premium venue to share the spectacle of this great race and be part of the renowned AllTrails service.

Monthly win-a-bike draw; the earlier you book, the more draws you are entered in.
