Do you ride on a regular basis? Ever dreamed of being a pro cyclist but just couldn’t give up your day job? Well, here’s your chance to ride the same route as the top guns of world cycling. The Mutual Community Challenge Tour 2007 on Friday 19 January offers serious riders the opportunity to test their skills while riding the same route that the professionals will take on Stage 3 of the Tour Down Under.

More than 2500 people donned the exclusive jersey and participated in 2006. Socialise and chat with fellow riders or set a goal to beat your personal best – it’s up to you.

The 128 kilometre route begins in Stirling in the Adelaide Hills, less than 30 minutes from the Adelaide city centre, and ends at Victor Harbor, a popular seaside holiday spot.

If the full 128-kilometre stage distance is a little too far, you can choose the shorter 84-kilometre route departing from Ashbourne.

128 kilometres
Start: Stirling at approximately 7:00am
Finish: Victor Harbor

84 kilometres
Start: Ashbourne at approximately 8:00am
Finish: Victor Harbor

Entry is open to experienced cyclists who can ride the full 128 or 84 kilometre distance. Participants should have some experience in long distance rides and be regular riders.
