Australia Ride: STAGE 19 - Launceston to Hobart
About this page
|17 Feb 2013||22 Feb 2013|
Everybody loves Tasmania! The history of the early settlers, grand old buildings, beautifully painted weatherboard houses, picturesque stone cottages and of course the wonderful winding roads that pass through quaint townships and magnificent countryside. It's all here - all you have to do is bring your bike and ride. In February 2013 we are riding both Tasmania East and West. The rides cater for cyclists comfortable cycling at 20-25km on a flat road, however we have longer routes for the faster riders. Make the most of this opportunity and get together with bring your friends, group, club or BUG - it really is a beautiful place to ride your bike. On the first stage of this ride (Stage 19 of Australia Ride) we head out from Launceston passing the beautiful, freshly painted timber homes alongside the Tamar River, before they thin out as you start climbing some of the many hills on this exciting tour of Tassie. The climbs and descents are interspersed with magnificent views across cattle strewn countryside, National Parks, and lots of big trees and thick forest as you wind your way through the beautiful towns and picturesque landscapes. We finish the ride at the historically significant and deeply moving site at Port Arthur before boarding the catamaran to Hobart. Also check out our Tassie West ride.
