The Pop-up


We’re delighted to debut a brand new location for the Rapha Pop-up this year at the heritage-listed Queen’s Theatre. Head down during race week for a cold brew – whether alcoholic or caffeinated – and delicious local food, or browse the latest Rapha products, alongside stalls from brands Canyon, Wahoo, Baum Cycles and SRAM. We’ll also be showing the TDU live on the big screen, and hosting plenty of great rides and events.

Highlights include:




  • Bridge Road Brewers beer on tap


  • Mischief Coffee


  • Limited edition Rapha Adelaide merchandise


  • Group rides run by local ride leaders


  • RCC early access to new product launches


  • RCC exclusive access to the Willunga Hill Pilgrimage


  • Rides with EF Education First Pro Cycling & CANYON//SRAM


  • The chance to win a day in the team car with EF on the Willunga Hill stage


  • The chance to win two VIP passes to the Schwalbe Classic (ticket details here)
