Water Fire Trail

Some illegally cut/built MTB tracks that run off the Water Fire Trail in Wellington Park for a distance north of approximately 300 metres, finishing in Tolosa Park will shortly be closed off/rehabilitated.

East West Snow

The June 2017 Greater Hobart Mountain Bike Master Plan Implementation Update has been released including a note that a detailed feasibility study is being undetaken by World Trail on the Big Bend to Junction Cabin Downhill Track, the shared use status of Middle Track (Radfords to Reservoir Trail) has now been made permanent and much more.

Implementation of Greater Hobart Mountain Bike Plan - March 2016 Update
The release of the Greater Hobart Mountain Bike Plan (Land Manager) updates is one of my favourite mountain biking reads as I get to see what progress is being made on various projects in my own backyard.

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).

Possible Macquarie Point Route

The Hobart City Council agreed to set aside $400,000 to construct approximately 400m of the cycleway from McVilly Drive to the boundary of the Macquarie Point development site at their meeting of 24 July 2017.

January 2014 Events Update
There's a real summer smorgasbord of MTB events on offer over the next few months with Wildside MTB 2014, The Blue Dragon in February, LMBC/CCMBC's Super Sprung Spring Series and Dirt Devils Summer XC weekend series all kicking off.

For those who prefer their road riding, there's the Tour De Norfolk Plains (Feb 2), the Bridport Cycle Challenge (Feb 23), the Mt Wellington Challenge (March 2)  and a swag of Audax rides on offer in the upcoming months, and don't forget that Bike Week (15-23 March) is also only a few short months away.

If you're not into racing, then you could check out CCMBC's Social Ride along the Forth River on the 19th of January, TBug has their usual interesing offering of social rides around Launceston, and there's a pretty active new facebook group Hobart MTB Rides which is offering up lots of social riding opportunities.

Finally, if you want to go off and do your own thing, trail notes for Mount Stronach, Mount Cameron and Youngtown Reserve have been added to tassietrails in the last month, as well as an update to the Meehan Ranges route notes and map to include the new Cliff Top trail opened up by the Hobart Trail Groomers.

If you can't find something in that lot to get you out on your bike, then I give up!

As always all the events that I can find are listed in the Events Calendar.
January 2015 Event Calendar
Maybe everyone is out riding their bikes (or building trails), but December was a fairly quiet month for event updates with only one new event added (and that was for the Tas Mud Run in April) to the Tassie Trails Events Calendar.

That's not to say there's nothing coming up.  For those wanting to race the Cranky Penguin on 1 February, you've only got until 8am on January 5 to get that entry in, which means do it now (or it may already be too late).
