We thought you might like to know what Liam Correy (our first Facilities Development Manager) is up to now:

Hey Bicycle Tasmania members. Just writing to let you know that I’m now over in Western Australia working as a nurse in rural and remote hospitals. I’m having a break from the bike riding politics of Tasmania but still keeping my nose to the ground and am in regular contact with Emma Pharo with regards to her progress on the ‘Creating Healthy Connections Plan’.
First I travelled to India and spent a couple of months skiing in Kashmir and then defrosting in the south. I started work in Innisfail, North Queensland, then Geraldton, now Albany and I’ll be moving onto Fitzroy Crossing and Carnarvon in 2013.

I’m on the road with my mountain bike, roadbike and several surfboar

I’m focusing on having fun, catching waves, catchingds but found it just too hard to ride the two bikes with all my gear and surfboards so have a car to help me get from job to job. I’m spending a lot of my time exploring the coastline without my bike but a few days a week I can be found riding with the local cycling club before work. Unfortunately my riding to work has temporarily come to an end due to my accommodation being a 3 minute walk from the Hospital but I’m hoping to live further away from work as I really miss the daily commute.

 fish, making the most of being fit and healthy and experiencing the many awesome parts of Australia. I’m learning a lot about myself and picking up many new skills that I’m sure will help me when I choose to come back to helping more people cycle more often in Tasmania.

I miss the Hobart Bike Kitchen in my backyard, seeing the friendly faces of the Why Ride bus stars, my commute along Sandy Bay Rd and keeping those mischievous Hobart City Council Aldermen honest. I was very lucky to have been able to work for Bicycle Tasmania for a year. It was no doubt the best year of my life thus far!

I’ve been really happy to hear how Bicycle Tasmania is growing and making progress on several major projects. I’m honoured that my hard work has been carried on by the highly skilled and well regarded Emma Pharo.

Best Wishes

Liam Correy
