I see entries for the 2011 Challenge Tour are now open. The route will be from Norwood to Strathabyn which is a little disappointing since we did Norwood this year and the Norwood council seems to be anti cycling actually ripping out bike lines while most progressive councils are adding in new ones. I would also have expected a bit more fan fair and an appearance by Media Mike to announce the route.

At least the Norwood start is a nice easy 20km ride to the start, and finishing in Strath is nice too, means it's only a 70km ride back home!

Pretty sure that when Mike returns from drumming up some more trade, he will be all over it. Mission remains to get hm out there on a bike with us as part of CancerVoicesSA! We'll wear him down!

Hmmm... 15km to Norwood. 130km to Strath. 75km home via the velo way. Any other suggestions?

Will Adelaide Cyclists.com.get together, push for reduced entry fees, and get Adelaide Cyclists printed on our jersey's? Oh and does anyone know the exact route apparently takes in Checkers Hill thats all I know!

Sorry Dan, there are a number of us on here who ride as part of team CancerVoicesSA, so will have that on our jerseys. Please join us if you would like, great team to ride with, and we have monthly training rides, plus a core number of the group meet weekly for rides! Have a look in the events section for the next training ride where we have larger numbers, or if you want to go on one of the other Sunday rides, they leave from the same place.

I do not believe there are reduced entry fees, but if you register early you get it at a discounted rate already!

Wombat posted a link to the route on another thread, but here's a link to the TDU site where he got it from: http://www.tourdownunder.com.au/getinvolved/mutualcommunitychalleng...
