On Sunday 24 January kids aged from six to 12 could ride on the UCI World Tour track, just like the world's cycling superheroes.

Bupa mini tour for kids participants rode along the start/finish straight of the Be Safe Be Seen MAC Stage 6 street circuit just a few hours before the world's elite cyclists race the final stage of the Santos Tour Down Under.
Children were grouped according to their age, with each group having a different starting time from 9am.
They then had 20 minutes to ride as many laps of the special mini tour track as they can during that allocated time before the next age group commences.
Family Day celebrations in Elder Park took place afterwards for families to take in all the action of the final stage.
