Schoolies on 2 wheels; the closest thing Australia has to Milan Fashion Week. The Tour Down Under.
We’re back in Adelaide for the week-long cycling romance that’s had us smitten since our first visit in 2015, here to showcase why the Tour Down Under sends people head over heels for bikes.
Our garmin’s hit 54ºC and we drank our fair share of tins. Some went missing for days at a time after nights out at the pub, others got put to the sword up iconic climbs in the Adelaide Hills. At the end of the week the tour would be best remembered for our Instagram takeover for Rapha.

We flew our photographically gifted friend Josh Thomas out to Adelaide for a week of park crit burgers, games of downball against pro-cyclists, gelato and one very special image captured at the dining table of our temporary Soup HQ.

Our first ride became a quick tradition, we managed to pay a visit to the Tour Village, paid our respects to various faiths and indulge in Adelaide’s finest breakfast fare. Our first full Tour Down Under experience was true #scenes, made all the better by new friends found along the way.
