Velo-Fringe comes to Adelaide in conjunction with the Velo-city Global Conference, the world's premier international cycling planning conference. The Velo-Fringe program runs from May 16 right through to the end of the month, comprising of rides, talks, exhibitions and events.
A highlight of the Velo-fringe program is Barossa by Bike, a festival of events within the Barossa region on May 24 and 25. While supporting the Velo-Fringe program, Barossa by Bike will celebrate the official opening of the Jack Bobridge track.
The Jack Bobridge track is a purpose built cycling and walking path that meanders through some of the most beautiful and iconic areas of the acclaimed Barossa food and wine region. Extending 40 kilometres from Gawler to Angaston, the path passes through the main townships of Nuriootpa, Tanunda and Lyndoch and many local attractions including the Barossa Bushgardens, Jacobs Creek and Mengler Hill Sculpture Park.
Barossa by Bike events provide an opportunity to explore different areas of the Barossa via sections of the track at your own pace or together in the scavenger hunt or group ride. Drop in to the Angaston Farmers Market to rest your legs and exercise your taste buds, check out the new Jam Factory at Seppeltsfield or discover local artist Steve Oatway's crazy bike exhibition.
The full Velo-Fringe schedule is available from the Velo-Fringe website and has a lot of detail on the full range of events.
Velo-Fringe officially kicks off on Friday night at the State Library with the Velorama party providing films, food, music and lots of bikes!
On Sunday, May 18 get involved with Velo in the Park promoting Victoria Park as a cycling hub. This fun family event will showcase the current cycling stakeholders like cycling and pedal prix racing, as well as participation from a variety of other cycling related groups like Cyclo Cross, Findon Skid Kids, Bike SA and BMX SA.
