Wildside 2014 Riders - Strahan
News
The Zeehan MTB Hub came one big step closer yesterday with the Tasmanian Cabinet approval of $1.21 million for the construction and marketing of eight trails connecting Zeehan, Rosebery and Tullah.
Rumour is that the cyclists are already lining up to get to Zeehan and ride these trails ... (OK, so maybe I'm trying to start that rumour).
Hobart Rivulet Track
News
Hobart City Council is seeking feedback on the proposal to replace the gravel track with an all-weather sealed surface. Click here to provide comments. A successful grant from the Trails and Bikeways Program is funding some of the improvements. Last winter sections became wet and boggy and the lack of sunlight prevented it from drying out. The muddy surface makes it unpleasant for people using prams, on bicycles, mobility scooters or simply walking and combined with the slope from McKellar St, the slipperiness has safety issues for people riding or walking.

The good news is that the new (and I think rather awesome) logo for the North East Trails (still under construction) has been released, and as commented by one person, it would make a rather awesome beer label for one of the microbrews at Weldborough Pub.  Not so good news is that the same article notes that the trails will open in early 2015, not December 2014 as has been previously reported in The Mercury newspaper.  Full details below.

Only one Australia venue presently has this rating.

The first edition of a new newsletter highlighting what is happening with the Derby/ Blue Tier trails is now available.  Perhaps the most exciting news for we locals is that the first trails are likely to be open before Christmas (though some may argue that the new toilet block is also pretty exciting news). There's lots of other great information in the newsletter including news that Hertz are getting on board and will be offering bike racks and trailers from Launceston.  These are the small things that will make this whole concept work.

News
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).
