South Australia is already world famous for its wines and is quickly becoming equally as famous for cycling, especially with the successful Tour Down Under professional event in January each year. But perhaps what is less known is the network of wonderful, off-road trails that pass right through the heart of this beautiful region. South Australia has developed a fantastic network of cycling trails that make cycling safe, fun and accessible for just about anyone.

The cycling on this tour is relatively easy and could be completed by even a novice rider. With a guide on hand and a support vehicle never far away, it’s no wonder your focus will be on experiencing the incredible food, wine and scenery of amazing South Australia. This tour is the ultimate combination of fun, stress-free cycling, beautiful scenery and gourmet food and wine to savour.

The landscape varies across the three regions, from the vast rows of world-class vineyards and old farm trucks of the Barossa, to the historic cellar doors and Lutheran history of the Clare, to the more modern-feeling, ocean vistas of the McLaren Vale region. It all starts and ends in lovely Adelaide, fast becoming one of Australia's highest-rated tourist cities. In fact, Lonely Planet named Adelaide in the Top Ten Cities to Visit in 2018.
