The Wellington Park Management Trust has extended the trial of Shared Use (for cycling and walking) on the Pillinger Drive Track from Fern Tree Park to Pillinger Drive until the end of June 2017.
Mountain Bike trails in the Trevallyn and Kate Reed Recreation Areas are set for a major upgrade thanks to a $300,000 grant from the Hodgman Liberal Government’s Tourism Infrastructure Fund.
One of the pains of travelling interstate or overseas with a bike is organising the car hire. The number of times I've turned up at the airport to pick up a five door hatchback (which I've found is usually the most convenient way of transporting a bike with two or less people and two bikes), and found myself upgraded into a 'luxury car' which can't fit a bike ... grrr. Anyway, good news in Tassie is that Autorent Hertz Tasmania is now offering campervan with quality (thule) bike racks.
The Tasmanian Government has released a Draft Cycle Tourism Strategy for comment. The Strategy identifies three priority areas to support the growth and development of cycle tourism in the State out to 2020: consolidating trails and routes; marketing trails and events in Tasmania; and providing the supporting infrastructure and services to provide the right experience once cycle tourists arrive.
