Bupa Family Ride

family ride

The Bupa Family Ride is your family's opportunity to ride together on the same track as the world's cycling superstars.

In 2018, the Bupa Family Ride will not only return to the People's Choice Classic circuit on the first Sunday of the Santos Tour Down Under, but for the first time will also take place in Victor Harbor for Stage 3's finish!

The Bupa Family Ride allows for families to take the big stage together, riding laps of the UCI World Tour tracks just hours before the world's elite cyclists hit the streets. Bike trailers and child seats are welcome, so the whole family can participate!

What you need to participate:

  • A bicycle in good condition
  • An Australian standards approved helmet
  • Parent/guardians permission (for those under 18 years of age)
  • Please note the Bupa Family Ride is for families only and therefore each entry must have one adult and one child at minimum.
