There is so much to see at this year’s Open House Hobart that we’ve put together a free social ride that takes in the major sites as part of a cycling tour on Saturday 9 November.
We can only accept a maximum of 15 people on the ride as it includes booked tours so get in quick to secure your place!
Open House Hobart is all about uncovering some of the city’s architectural and historical gems for everyone to experience.
Some of the highlights of our Open House ride include a tour of the imposing Treasury Buildings built in 1824 and an excursion up the Post Office tower to see the workings behind the city’s official clock.
We’ve also thrown in some great connecting rides, such as the Battery Point Sculpture Trail between the visit to the Alexandra Battery and the Colonial Mutual Life rooftop where you can take in stunning views over the top of the gargoyle heads.
We are meeting at the Bicycle Network office at 9.40 am for a 9.50 depature. Bring a bike lock and picnic lunch, although we’ll be stopping at Salamanca Place so there are plenty of cafes to choose from.
If someone wants to stop elsewhere let your ride leader Greg know and he may be able to fit in an extra stop as long as it doesn’t interfere with the booked tour times.
The ride will be via roads, footpaths and bike paths were available and is suitable for people who are experienced riders.
