Little legs on the big stage
Bupa mini tour for kids is your child's opportunity to ride on the Be Safe Be Seen MAC Stage 6 circuit just hours before the pros.
Riders will be kitted out with an official t-shirt and rider number, riding a section of the official 2017 Santos Tour Down Under race route.
Kids will be grouped according to age, with each group allocated 20 minutes to ride as many laps of the special mini tour track as they can.
This is the little ones' big chance to show off their cycling skills while being cheered on by the Santos Tour Down Under crowd lining the race track.
Participants will receive a Ride Guide closer to the event date with more information, including individual age group start times. The participant t-shirt and goodie bag can be collected from the Tour Village prior to Sunday 22 January 2017.
