Coast to Coast

Stirling To Victor Harbor | Sunday 14 March 2021

Important Update – Glenelg Start cancelled

Due to ongoing resealing and upgrade works on the SE Freeway over the coming months, we have been advised that it will now not be possible for us to access the up-track of the SE Freeway as we have done in the past.
In the interest of participant safety, the decision has been made to cancel the Glenelg start (120km) option. The Stirling (95km – 8am start) and Meadows (65km – 8am start) start options, along with the mini Coast to Coast at Victor Harbor, will proceed as normal.

Seriously, this one's a classic. You don't want to miss out. I do it every year with my work and it's a real challenge but the pain is worth it.

Ian , Coast To Coast Participant

I started in Stirling, and the back roads all the way through to Victor were breathtaking. Bicycle SA provided such great support along the way. Thanks team!
