Bicycle Network Tasmania has launched a range of ride guides to help locals and visitors enjoy all the state has to offer.
The guides have been uploaded to the Ride with GPS website and app, Ambassadors section with our Social Ride Leaders having done all of the planning for you.
Ride with GPS is set up to show distance, elevation, GPS markers and photos along the way. You can use the app on your phone while riding or print off a map and instructions.
The Bicycle Network rides are designed for people who like fun, social rides rather than people trying to ride long distances and beat personal best times.
The routes are about the sights and activities along the way and are mostly on tracks, lanes and quiet roads. They can be a day trip or weekend away, using your bicycle to explore an unfamiliar region at a leisurely pace.
Our Social Ride Leader, Di Elliffe, will be adding more rides to the page in coming months and welcome suggestions for new rides to map.
