Best seats in Adelaide
With barely any time to get over the recent Tour Down Under, another lycra clad event has already hit Adelaide. On 17th March, Boileau VeloAdelaide will see cyclists spinning their wheels in the Mt Lofty Challenge. A car-free event beginning at Hutt Street in the CBD, cyclists will make their way into the Adelaide Hills via the South Eastern Freeway through the Heysen Tunnel and back again.

For those who find Mt Lofty one hill too steep, there is the Free Family Fun Ride through the Parklands and along the river.

The event is in its second year running and last year nearly 2000 riders took part in the Mt Lofty Challenge with another 550 taking part in the Family Free Fun Ride.

Boileau VeloAdelaide - Mt Lofty Challenge

The Mt Lofty Challenge will see 35km Adelaide Hill roads free of cars. Routes range from 50km, 80km or 110km. There is also the option of beginning from Stirling for a 35km or 65km ride back to the event village in the city.
