The unofficial TDU calendar: Monday, January 15

Never miss a ride or a party.

Welcome to the unofficial Tour Down Under calendar, your complete guide to the real goings-on at the Tour Down Under. We have the race schedule, of course, but also group rides, parties, car park hill climb – it’s all here so you always know what’s going on.

We’ll post every day throughout the TDU. Each post will include the following day’s calendar. If we missed something, email [email protected] with details.

This calendar is based on the superb work of Escape Collective member David Rossi and repurposed with his permission. Make sure to check out David’s iconic All The TDU calendar here.

What to check out from Escape Collective today:

Daily rides:
We’ll be hosting daily rides from Wednesday 17th – Sunday 21st January. You’ll be able to find more info on those rides in these daily updates as the week progresses. To register (free!) for the rides please head here, and don’t forget to pull along your mates.

In addition to our regular programming, you can check out our Tour Down Under pods, appearing in your feed every second day. Join regulars Dave Rome, Ronan McLaughlin, Matt de Neef, Iain Treloar with special guest Rupert Guinness. You can listen to the special TDU episodes on iTunesSpotify, or wherever you get your podcasts.

The Oakley Carpark Climb:
Ok, this one isn’t happening until Saturday 20th January – but we didn’t want you to miss one of the biggest parties of the week! As one of the sponsors, we’ll be there to bring the noise (catch us on the final bend). Pop the details below into your diary, and be sure to bring a buddy!
6pm-9pm: Carpark Climb
Location: Wilson Parking – East End

Down Under Digest:
The Down Under Digest is a weekly wrap-up of all things Aussie and Kiwi cycling. While there are not additional digests during the Tour Down Under we didn’t want to miss the opportunity to give it a little plug. You can check out previous editions here, and sign up (free!) to have them delivered directly to your inbox each week by heading here.
