Clare Classic Returning in 2020


The Clare Classic is set to return in 2020 after the inaugural event this year was a success.

Event organisers say the community and local council support was tremendous and they are excited to return to the Clare Valley.

The event will now run bi-annually to ensure riders will return for the world class cycling available in the region.

Clare Gilbert Valley Council CEO Helen Macdonald says cycling is a major drawcard for South Australia and they are delighted to have the event return to the region.

This year 40% of riders travelled from interstate to ride the first ever Clare Classic with the 2020 event again delivering three courses with further additions in the works.
