CONSIDER JOINING THE BICYCLE TASMANIA COMMITTEE
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.
ARE YOU GETTING ALL THAT YOU PAY FOR?
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.
