Bicycle Tasmania advertises its rides in the website events calendar.

Get ride into the events calendar

email rides@biketas.org.au with details of the ride for inclusion in the online calendar.

The event details should include (as appropriate as not all rides need every detail):

  • A brief description of the ride including any key aspects or theme
  • Distance of ride and subsections - if not sure, say ‘no more than ...’
  • The likely speed of the ride (give a range or minimum average)
  • Route description, cue sheet or map (in content or as attachment)
  • Route profile – description of terrain or profile image (in content or as attachment)
  • Location of water and food (and toilets) along the route
  • Because the majority of rides offer some opportunity to buy refreshments, specifically indicate if this is not the case
  • Road surface types, sealed, unsealed (describe surface condition expected), off-road
  • Type of bikes considered adequate for the ride (particularly if off-road)
  • Any particular requirements, eg, lights, additional water
  • An estimated duration or finish time (and if appropriate, the likely speed of the riders)
  • Describe any support provided or include the words ‘this ride is ‘unsupported’ and riders are to be self sufficient and provide their own water, food, tools, pump, spares (spokes, tubes, etc.), puncture repair kits, and whatever else they desire and there is no ‘sag wagon’ or equivalent’.
