Santos Tour Down Under Thumb

Santos Tour Down Under

The Santos Tour Down Under is the first major event on the cycling calendar, kicking off the year in beautiful South Australia. The nine-day event was first held in 1999, and has quickly grown to be the largest cycling event in the southern hemisphere. Some of the best cyclists travel to South Australia to be a part of this event, including past Tour de France winners and world-class cyclists.

The prestigious event is also a festival of cycling, and offers many activities for everyone to enjoy. Amateur cyclists can get involved in the Subaru Breakaway Series, which gives cyclists the opportunity to ride part of the race route. There are also family days, a children’s version of the race and a tour hub, for information, the race on the big screen, and food and drinks.

A great way to get the most out of the Santos Tour Down Under is to hire a campervan, and explore the parts of regional South Australia where the cyclists are. DriveNow is able to compare prices and book your campervan all in one place, ensuring you get the best deal for you. Many campervans offer double beds, all-inclusive kitchens and bathrooms, and plenty of space to relax and enjoy your holiday. The closest pick-up location is in Adelaide.
