Tour down Under 2018

Posted on: Monday, January 15, 2018

The pilgrimage to the #tourdownunder2018 began a couple of days ago. Dogs in the car, bikes on the roof we joined the hoards of interstaters heading for Adelaide.

The annual road trip is one of my favourites. The Tour down Under is cycling celebrated Aussie style, relaxed and effortless other than the odd brutal hill to justify a beer.

First up, #ridelikecrazy. The 10th and possibly last. This ride has bough tme over days before the TdU proper for a number of years now and I do hope the SA police keep it going.

The peoples choice criterium, was an awesome display of the worlds best and Adelaide camr out to watch Peter Sagan take line honors.
Tomorrow we will ride to Williamstown. The ride links will be posted each day on my facebook page. Download them to your phone or gps so that you can find the way. Join me on the ride.
