Bicycle Tasmania has grown, both in number of members and in the quality of our
advocacy work. In the community the love of utility and recreational cycling continues to
re-emerge. Meanwhile the nation, and this state in particular, is undergoing a period of
government spending contraction. As always, departments react by being change-averse.
Much of our good work appears to fall on stony ground! There have been wins, but the
real value in what we are doing lies in steadily driving changes in thinking, changes in
habit, and changes in values.
