The unofficial TDU calendar: Sunday, January 21

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.

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.

“For Australian cycling, the TDU is most certainly the ‘blue ribbon’ event, attracting a diverse demographic of cyclists and fans to Adelaide! Contour provides a year round community-centric hub for all cyclists to enjoy our beautiful sport; to ride, to socialise, to network, to drink coffee and to satisfy their retail desires..! We love Adelaide, we love cycling and most of all, we love our community, which swells to mind blowing numbers during the TDU. Thanks to all who support us.”
