Dust off the bikes, pump up the tyres, put on your helmets: Family Ride and Mini Tour for Kids Registrations are now OPEN
The 2019 Santos Tour Down Under will deliver a bigger and better Family Day on Sunday 13 January 2019 at the Down Under Classic and is calling on all cycling fans, young an old, as well as those who just love to ride their bikes, to put their foot on the pedal to join the party.
Both the Mini Tour for Kids and the Family Ride, as part of the Subaru Breakaway Series, (the Santos Tour Down Under’s official recreational ride program) will be held on the same day as part of the Family Day festivities.
Cycling stars of the future aged 6-12 will be able to ride laps of a modified Down Under Classic circuit in the Mini Tour for Kids earlier in the day to kick off activities. Not only is this a fun ride for the kids, it is also on a closed road, making it super safe.
As the crowds begin to slowly assume prime position along the barrier line throughout the day, families will gather to make their track debut in the 2019 Family Ride. The Family Ride is the perfect time for families to ride together and experience the thrill of participating on part of the world stage cycling circuit.
Touring through the City’s East End, the Down Under Classic circuit will travel along East terrace, through the East Parklands and loop back – and is the perfect opportunity for participants to test their skills in the heart of Adelaide on a specific section of track ahead of the professionals taking on the same circuit.
Family Day will include free, fun, family inspired activations. Registrations are now open for
the Mini Tour for Kids and Family Ride at www.tourdownunder.com.au/familyday
