Bicycle Tasmania is a booming and vibrant organisation, last year our membership grew by 30% and will continue to grow this year. It is strongly supported by Bicycle Network (Victoria), and has a tremendously important role to play at this point in time. In order to continue it needs new volunteers each year to join the committee. If you are interested in joining our committee contact president@biketas.org.au, or just come along the AGM and put your hand up!  

About the committee..

The primary advocacy work of Bicycle Tasmania is carried out by our Facilities Development Manager, Dr Emma Pharo. Member services and membership management is carried out by Bicycle Network, which also provides member insurance and RideOn magazine. Events such as recreational rides, bicycle valet parking, information stalls, bicycle traffic counts are organised and run by the committee and extra volunteers. 

The committee determines Bicycle Tasmania's policies and activities, manages the budget and, with Emma, provides links between Bicycle Tasmania and many other cycling and government committees and groups around the state. 

Committee meetings are held monthly and a committee website is used to discuss topics between meetings. Meetings are relaxed but succinct - usually lasting 1.5 to 2.5 hours - as all committee members are just as busy as anyone else in the community! 

The group is supportive and diverse, and each member only contributes as much time as they can manage. No experience is required, and you don't even need to ride a bike! You do need to believe that our towns should become places where people can ride a bicycle if they want to, whether they are eight years old or eighty.


Do you get RideOn magazine in the post?    
Do you get the monthly eNews bulletin by email?

If you don't then you are missing out. Maybe we don't have your email address or our database says you do not want these items. If you do want them then please contact secretary@biketas.org.au


As well as wanting to provide you with information, we also want to hear your views and ideas. The website ( www.biketas.org.au ) has a public Suggestions form, and a section for members to post messages on the website.
