Thursday 10-Jan-2019 to Sunday 20-Jan-2019 Tour Down Under
(Inspired by a discussion posted by Gus in Dec-2014.)
Can you add to this post?
The Challenge Tour 158.7km, full distance ride starts at 6:00am from Colley Terrace, Glenelg to finish at Strathalbyn.
Plan is for the Genesis bus to arrive 5:00am at Glenelg with riders and their bikes.
This should provide plenty of time for individual riders to toilet, collect their jersey with Id Tag & leave their gearbag at the cloakroom for collection at the finish in Strath, before taking up their start position.
Booked riders & their bikes will be loaded at 4:00am from out front of the Railway Station in Strathalbyn for $40 each including the bike. The bus fare is to be paid in cash to the driver at loading.
The Strathalbyn bus pickup will enable you to ride the full Community Challenge and then drive yourself in yoiur own car directly where ever & whenever you wish.
Please pass this bus info on to any cycling friends who could be interested.
You need to reply to me by SMS text or phone with your name, phone number & email for me to book a place for you on the 4am Strath to Glenelg bus.

The current answer is ... commentate on the TDU.
