On February 16th to 26th, the South Australian streets come alive in the city and hills for the Santos Tour Down Under.

There will be more lycra and saddle sores than you can shake a spoke at… and if you own a coffee shop; well, all your Christmases are about to come at once!

Jokes aside though, the Santos Tour Down Under is Australia’s greatest cycling race, with a rich history as the highest-regarded and most popular bike race in the southern hemisphere.

The event was first staged in 1999 with local rider Stuart O’Grady taking the win. Since then, numerous internationally renowned cyclists have joined the Honour Roll. The event has grown year-on-year to become the biggest cycling race in the southern hemisphere.

Proficient cyclists and amateurs alike will don the skins and saddle up whilst many will spectate in awe of the speeds some of these guys achieve in what can be gruelling conditions.

Now, whilst we love our Slappa’s Thongs, we are the first to admit they are probably not totally appropriate for mounting the deadly treadly and we would highly recommend a suitable cycling shoe.

So, if you’re going to splash out on a professional pair, what should you look out for?

The key features when it comes to cycling shoes are the fastening system, the sole, the cleat style and of course the fit.

Here is some more information:

Of course, even with the best cycling shoe money can buy, you will still look forward to the dismount so you can head home and slip on your super comfortable and personally moulded Slappa’s Thongs.

Because, as we all know, they are so comfy, you’ll never want to take them off!

Happy Tour Down Under!
