Plenty of distance and climbing options todays, you may like to skip the first big climb up into the Adelaide Hills it’s nearly 20km, as we head straight up into the Adelaide Hills via Eagle on the Hill and onto Adelaide’s highest vantage point Mt Lofty.
We regroup at the top of Mt Lofty, from here we are over the first big climb and we are now cycling through the “Little Europe” of the Adelaide Hills – and onto the German Settlement of Hahndorf. After a quick snack and coffee in Hahndorf, we’ll loop back through the scenic Adealide Hills. We’ll pick up the race route and ride ahead of the peloton to todays race finish area in Stirling.
We’ll catch the stage finish today, it’s sure to be exciting, we expect the overall race contenders to make thier move today on this tough finishing circuit.
After the race finish and presentation, we then follow the pro team riders and head back down to the city by bike, it’s a real buzz to follow the Pro’s down through the Adelaide Hills – or relax in the airconditioned comfort of our vehicles and head back to our team hotel.
