Having run successfully for the first time in 2019, the Aldinga Beach Criterium is a unique venue for the Cycling SA Super Series - this is the only time of the year you'll get to race here! Having undergone a few tweaks and changes throughout the planning process, this criterium will be a 1km course with three fast corners that proved to string out the bunch last year in most grades.

Just far enough out of town to make it worthwhile to stay in the region, there are plenty of options for accommodation to make a weekend of the trip!

Cycling SA have paired with Ride-a-Bike-Right to deliver some sessions for anyone to learn to ride - for free! They will be doing 45 minute sessions for people aged 4 and up to learn to ride a bike under the direction of accredited coaches. Pre-registration will be necessary for these sessions, so make sure you head on over to the link here and register for a session!

We are grateful to the local residents and business owners for their support of this event taking place right on their doorstep, and to the City of Onkaparinga for their support in putting the event on.

This little spot on the Aldinga Beach Esplanade is home to a few local cafes and businesses who are super keen to have you all come out!


Century 21 SouthCoast

With over 80 holiday homes in the area at their disposal, Century 21 South Coast are the people you've got to see if you want to stay down South and check out the region!


SOURC'D Wine & Coffee Bar

Just next door to Century 21, SOURC'D are a one stop shop for coffee all morning and wine all afternoon. We're hoping for a sunny one, so a perfect opportunity to sit back with a glass and watch the bike race go by!


Aldinga Bay Cafe

Pulling double duty as this beachfront's fish and chip shop as well as the local Indian restaurant, Aldinga Bay Cafe have you covered for that post-race hot chip craving, or if you're sticking around for the weekend you can get dinner on Saturday night without even having to go anywhere!


Breeze Cafe and Bar

A perfect little beachside cafe, Breeze Aldinga Beach have a wide range of breakfast, lunch and dinner options to suit any palate. Don't be surprised if they're full all day, with a healthy number of regulars through the doors (especially if the weather's good!) - and for good reason. If you can't get a table, grab a pizza and sit on the grassy area inside the first corner to watch the bikes whizz past!
