Bicycle Tasmania Events  2012

Century and Half century Ride, Sunday March 18.

Enjoy this  fundraising recreational ride organised by Bicycle Tasmania for its members and for the general public. 

The 2012 ride will be very similar to that held in 2011 except that it will start and finish at Kangaroo Bay on the Eastern Shore and will not cross the Tasman bridge. 

The riders start as a group from Kangaroo Bay and ride along Kangaroo Bay Road to Bligh Street, then at Mornington onto Cambridge Road. The route will then be the same as in previous years through Cambridge, Seven Mile Beach, Tea Tree and Richmond until, instead of crossing back on the Bowen Bridge, the riders will turn down the East Derwent Highway till Geilston Bay where they will cross the new cycle bridge onto the Foreshore Bike Path and follow that all the way back to the finish at Kangaroo Bay.

Rider must check-in in the hour prior to the ride, whether registered or not. Start times:  Century 9am,  Half-Century 11am (but can elect to start with Century riders at 9am).

Tour de Femme, Monday March 12.

Leave the boys at home.  It's an exclusive girls day out, especially for women and girls who haven’t done much riding before. It’s an easy, flat loop course from Cambridge to Seven Mile Beach and back.

11 am start.

Rivulet Heritage Ride, Wednesday March 15

Ride into some of Hobart’s oldest history concentrating on the Hobart Rivulet Linear Park above Barrack Street. The ride will pass the sites of former corn mills, woollen mills, saw mills, tanneries, breweries, distilleries, the Female Factory, through Cascade Gardens and finish up at the Cascade Brewery site. The ride will be at a leisurely pace with frequent stops at points of interest.

5.30pm start, corner Molle and Collins Streets, Hobart. Free!
