OK, it's been awhile (although I have been keeping the Events Calendar up to date, and have been working on a new Major Events page).
Anyway, let's put that behind us, and look forward ... now you'd think as we head into winter that things would be quieting down, but it seems to me that quite the opposite is true with lots of new event dates being set. We've got the Corporate Multisport Challenge in Hobart and the Kellevie 4 Hour Enduro coming up this month (both on the 14th) and there's a 200km (and 150km) Dark Bikefo audax ride on offer on 20 June to celebrate the solstice.
The Wellington Park Management Trust have approved the conversion of Old Farm Track to a single use (bike only) and single direction (downhill only) track. This is an exciting project for the City, which will contribute to the development of a cohesive mountain bike track network within Wellington Park.
The change from the original time is required due to the time required to undertake variations in scope and lost time due to inclement weather.
