I've just booked flights over there for the tour - can anyone recommend accommodation locations for someone completely new to Adelaide?

Can anyone help me with getting hold of a map for the BUPA stage this year for a Garmin 800 (and how to upload).

The Garmin Aust site had a link in 2011 but haven't done that again...

Cheers,

Download the point to point map from the TdU website, head to any of the decent mapping sites, plop in the route, export the file as .gxp, and then upload to the Garmin.

Easy.

Or, do a Google search. That's how I've done it before.

Many of you guys going down?

My tickets are booked. Bike bag has been dragged out of the cupboard and we're getting closer to leaving.

I've got the course layouts. Looking forward to riding down to McLaren Vale on Saturday and watching the finish in the city on Sunday!

Off to Adelaide for a few days. I will be there for stages 2 (Montacute) and 3 (Stirling).

1. Any "must-do" ride suggestions (40-50km approx; based in CBD and will have the car if needed)?

2. Where can you get a decent coffee?? :)

3. Is the beer any good?? :) :) :wink:

Looking forward to it, have heard very good things about Adelaide at TDU time.

1. Norton Summit/Montacute loop, is an Adelaide classic of that distance, or try the old freeway/mt lofty route

2 CIBO

3. Coopers Sparkling is a great drop.

Any ideas on the route and how long?

Seeing I am taking the bike down for the Bupa, would like to use it as much as possible.
