2016 Tour Down Under time

Adelaide’s annual Tour Down Under is without doubt one of my favourite weeks on the calendar. I always love going back home for a visit but this is one occasion in particular that simply can’t be missed.

The six-day world tour cycling event brings out the best in my home state with the race reaching iconic regions such as the Adelaide Hills and McLaren Vale. In between all the bikes my boyfriend and I had ample opportunity to shop, wine and dine and the like, which just so happened to make for the perfect distraction from our moving mayhem in Melbourne.

I’ve listed all the important details from our trip, like where you can get the best steak you’ll ever have in your life, as well as included all my best photos from our Adelaide getaway below.

Not only did I survive a hike up the iconic Corkscrew climb in deathly hot and humid conditions but I also managed to snap this pic of American Tyler Farrar finishing the stage on a spectator’s bike.

Bread & Bone Adelaide

The best chicken burger I have ever had in my life, hands down. Bread & Bone Wood Grill is a must visit in the heart of the city.

I’m always up for a visit to Jamie’s Italian where you can always rely on good food, good service and a good time.

If you’re playing the role of tourist in this town then you needn’t look much further than 2KW. The rooftop bar is always vibing and you won’t find a better view of the city’s north anywhere else.

Umm… mind blown. Say hello to the world’s greatest salad bar served alongside of the world’s greatest steak at A Hereford Beefstouw.

Richie Porte

The pinnacle stage of the TDU sees riders grind up Old Willunga Hill, not once but twice, where we had the thrill of watching Aussie Richie Porte burn off his competitors to claim his third straight victory on the climb.

What a way to bid farewell to the Tour Down Under for another year. No there weren’t any bikes in sight at the Crush festival but brilliant company, breathtaking scenery, and a beautiful drop of vino at Bird in Hand.
