Tasmanian MTB Routes

Adding markers to the map ...
Ah, if only I had enough time to keep such a page up to date because I realise that it would be a very useful resource ... particularly when you break down in the middle of nowhere and aren't sure where the nearest bike shop may be ...

Flat Tyre on Heemskirk Range Track

Fortunately for me (and more importantly - you) I don't need to because others do.

Cycling South maintains an excellent webpage listing bike shops and hire places in Tasmania and they're even broken down by region.

The other very useful resource to go to is simply yellowpages.com.au.  Do a search for "bicycles shops" in your town or region (or just in Tasmania) and you'll get a list of all of the main bike shops scattered around the State with the added bonus that you can usually see exactly where they are. 

However, if you're broken down and just need basic repairs, also think of the obvious like is there a Big W or K-mart near by.

Once outside the major towns though, bike parts can be few and far between.  I do know from recent experience that the Log Cabin Store in Bicheno has a limited stock of tyres and tubes, and as and when I stumble across other small places to stock up around the State I'll let you know.

A circumnavigation of Lake King William has been on the to-do list for a very long time, and I have tried (unsuccesfully) to do it in the past,  but today I finally made that all important decision to actually set my alarm and set out ...

So I hadn’t been expecting much from the new George Town trails.   Truth be told, I expected to just spend a few hours riding them and then drive away thinking “that’s that done, time to go and ride some proper trails.” But, four hours and many ...

I've wanted to explore Lake Pedder by kayak for a long, long time now, even before I saw some of the magnificent photos taken by Geoff Murray of camping by the lake shore. But I've also heard whispered stories of challenging and changable conditions,...
