South Australia is well known for its gorgeous vineyards, great seafood and strong cycling culture. We’ve decided to bring all of this together in the Wine, Wheels & Whiting bike ride – where riders can pedal all the way from the Clare Valley to the Copper Coast – and be entertained by a weekend of festivities put on by the locals.
The Bike SA weekend ride kicks off with entertainment, food and wine at Clare, the evening of Friday 11 September with a dinner in Clare.
