The 2010 Santos Tour Down Under does Barossa. Words by Eleanor Griffin.
If you can catch them, Lance Armstrong, Cadel Evans and Jack Bobridge will be racing through the Barossa for the Tour Down Under in January. For those craving a piece of the action there are guided bike tours to challenge mountain bikers and speed cyclists, or for a more relaxing break there are bicycling trips that wend through breathtaking scenery to visit the renowned wineries and restaurants of the region. Bikes can also be rented to follow recommended routes at an individual pace, which is a great way to explore the area. For families and spectators there will also be a parade and heritage events.
The 2010 Santos Tour Down Under takes place 19-25 January 2010. For more info visit www.tourdownunder.com.au
