"Interesting take on it. I see it as a way to boost participation in the public ride, which might be driving some of the overall tourism benefits. While the Willunga hill stage is iconic, the formula of the TDU has become very established and almost…"

Stage 5 of the 2019 TDU (Saturday 19 January) will not be at Willunga, replaced by a sprinters' stage from Glenelg to Strathalbyn via Yankalilla and Goolwa.The Challenge Tour will also be on that day rather than the Friday.I wonder if the TDU sponsorship has been a casualty of the corruption scandal at the City of Onkaparinga, or if the race organisation simply decided it was time for a change? Or maybe Willunga will be on a different day?It will be interesting to see what will happen when the…See More

"Submissions for 2018 closed a month ago on the 8th of June, which is why I suggested next year's festival.  I think the extra publicity of holding a festival screening would make it worth considering. "

Hi Dave. Sorry, I did not notice your message until today. I'm not that techno savvy.

Thank you kindly for the offer but the tyres on my bike are 25 mm. Because I use it for recreation and commute, the cycle shop advised me to go a bit wider to deal with uneven road surfaces. Seems to work.

Thanks for your advice and input to the thread.

regards Rob (Simpson)
