Tour Village

Click on the photo to enlarge
This is the Tour Village in Victoria Square in the centre of Adelaide. No it is not where the cyclists live; only their cycles. The teams stay in the Hilton Hotel, just across the road.

Each of the nineteen teams has a tent garage for storage and maintenance of their bikes. Each afternoon during the tour, the village will be open to visitors. Click here for another view of the village.

The people lined up are waiting to collect their jerseys for the Mutual Community Challenge Tour on Friday. I have heard that over 3000 cyclists are participating; I will be one of them.
