Local restaurants, bars and wine makers will bring their fare to the street as a stellar line up of live bands set the scene to celebrate the Stage 4 Start and Westpac Challenge Tour presented by The Advertiser.

“The Parade is the home of cycling in South Australia and a gateway to the iconic Adelaide Hills; making it a fitting starting line for the world’s most elite cyclists,” says Mayor Robert Bria.
