What to do at the T.D.U (Tour Down Under)

The Tour Down Under is here again for 2017, and while there is plenty of cycling and activities to do, our rides are going the be the best and most memorable rides of the TDU. 😀

Belgie Ride Tour Down Under 2017 TDU


We are bringing you 3 days of Curve Kays
Belgie Ride // RAPHA
Thursday 4pm 19th of January // RAPHA Pop Up // 5pm Roll Out
We are bringing the noise of the infamous Belgie Ride to the Tour Down Under. A punishing 40kms of mixed surface madness around the town of Adelaide. It's all ridable on road bikes, but bring your sense of adventure, maybe some robust tyres and definitely a spare tube or two. Followed by some party vibes, food and Bridge Rd beers back at Rapha.


A Taste of the Race to the Rock // RAPHA
Friday 7am 20th of January // RAPHA Pop Up
Back up the Belgie ride with a taste of the Race to the Rock. We will start this ride along side the crew at Rapha to head out to watch Stage 4, but for those who are feeling a little more adventurous we will split off and do the gravel climb that started the 2016 Race to the Rock course. 


Willunga - Curve // Kask // Cycling Tips
Saturday 7am 21st Jan  // Exchange Cafe in Victoria Square // 7.30 Roll Out
We've partnered up with our good buddies at Cycling Tips and KASK cycling to deliver you to the best spot to catch all the action in style.. Curve Cycling have pulled together a stunning little 70km (700m+ vert) jaunt out to Willunga, including an optional gravel alternative to Old Willunga Hill (it's awesome!).  Along the way we'll look after you with a refreshment, before delivering you to the prime viewing spot at the BikeExchange area, 200m from the finish. Protip: this is the last spot before the baracades start, which also means it's where the crowd is at the most intense!


We are so excited to be involved.... also we will have special little $10 Deal bag for you, included is one of our Stem Caps. Track us down for your fix.
