TdU 2017 Calendar of Events-The Adelaide Spectacular

As a local Radelaidian I look forward to the TdU week, not just because of the pro cycling, but because it is a chance for us Radelaidians to show off what Adelaide has to offer and  take in the spectacle that the local cycling community put on for one and all. It really is a feast of events covering that don’t just focus on cycling, but also provide entertainment for all the community.

The hills, the beaches, the cosmopolitan lifestyle, the central location of the tour village, the new faces and colorful kit, the events, the parties, the coffee, the streetside bbq’s – it is just a fantastic week.

This page provides information on the the spectacle and events around Adelaide that make up the 2017 Tour Down Under. It is definitely not comprehensive, but has picked up the main events.

The below shows the results of my casual searches for TdU information on Facebook, Twitter and other sources.  It is not comprehensive, so if I have missed any events, please notify me on wednesdaylegs@gmail.com and I’ll add to the list.

Rolling updates can be found on the Wednesday Legs Facebook site here – https://www.facebook.com/Wednesday-Legs

I have also set up a temporary page in this blog showing  event updates – https://wednesdaylegs.wordpress.com/calendar-of-events-2017-tdu/
