The quarterly land manager updates for the Greater Hobart Mountain Bike Master Plan is out and it makes for interesting reading. Tip Top Track has gone official and will soon be up on the Greater Hobart Trails website, there's a proposed conversion of the Old Farm Track to a one-way downhill track (comments sought), a big surprise for me was learning that the new Pilchers Hill and Caves Hill tracks will be designated as one-way uphill tracks only (not sure how much I like that), but on the good news front there are yet more plans, for yet more trail around the Clarence MTB Park and a connector track between Caves Hill and Belbins Rd (mega 5-star awesome).
Perhaps the biggest news of all (at least for those of us who have just bought a new house down at Lauderdale) is that Clarence City Council have constructed a boardwalk over the boggy section between Farnaby Place and Deprose Way (big yay).
Also as has already been reported on Tassie Trails, the Glenorchy MTB Park now has new signage (and unfortunately also has had some trail bike riders churn up some of the new green beginners trails).
There's even mention of consultants being engaged to determine potential routes for an "epic' ride in Wellington Park ... I don't know why they didn't just ask us ...
