Cycling enthusiasts will be spoilt for choice during next year’s Tour Down Under, with InterContinental Adelaide offering exclusive services to all guests.

The hotel will cater for a cyclist’s every need during the big race, with a full time Bike Concierge and a Bike Doctor on staff at InterContinental Adelaide from January 18 to 28.

The Bike Concierge will be the first to attend to the bike. When a cycling guest arrives at InterContinental Adelaide, the Bike Concierge will carefully deliver the precious cargo up to the guest’s room. From 6.30am to 8.30am, the Bike Doctor, a dedicated and qualified bike mechanic, will be on-site offering basic services, including safety checks and adjustments, to guests’ bikes. Both services are complimentary to all InterContinental Adelaide guests.

The world’s best cyclists will compete in the 2013 Tour Down Under, which will be held in Adelaide and regional South Australia from January 20 to 27.

South Australia becomes a cycling hub during January with thousands of cycling fans taking to the streets to watch the race and join in the community rides.

InterContinental Adelaide General Manager, James Allen said he was thrilled to be offering a one of a kind service to cycling fans visiting Adelaide during January.

“More than 30,000 cycling enthusiasts visit South Australia in January for the Tour and we hope the extra services we provide, such as the Bike Concierge and Bike Doctor, will improve their overall Tour experience.”

“InterContinental Adelaide’s Bike Concierge and Bike Doctor will take the upmost care when attending to our guests’ pride and joy. We are encouraging the international cycling fraternity and local residents looking for a holiday in their hometown this summer to experience our first class service,” Mr Allen said.
