Hi Kall,

Try and send a message to Celia - she is on the group or contact the Launceston Mountain Bike Club - they have a facebook page. OR go into the AVanti shop - run by Ben ? MTB rider ( partner of Rowena Fry) .. Hope that helps.

Hi Maree, hope that this hasn't got to you too late.  Heaps of great trails in Hobart apparently, although I am from Launceston and have only ridden the North South track down there which I highly recommend.  It starts on Mt Wellington and ends at the Glenorchy MTB park.  Pop into Ride Bellerive as they are very helpful and are part of a really good biking community.  Happy riding

Hi. I am visiting Hobart for a few weeks and someone suggested that it was a great area to mountain bike ride. I am fairly new to mountaining biking but I am fairly fit. Can anyone suggest any good rides? Thanks!

Hi All, I am coming down to Hobart this weekend for a mtb ride on Saturday morning.  My brother in law is taking us for a 30 - 40km mtb ride somewhere, not sure exactly where, with a regular group.  If anyone is interested let me know and I will get some details to you.  Cheers, Celia

We're also from Launceston, is much closer to Cradle Mountain then Hobart. All the best with your planning and just message me if you need to know anything else. Cheers, Celia

Nice thanks will ensure we are well provisioned. Will fly to Launceston via Melbourne

I believe that we are hiring a camper through Hertz, my husband did quite alot of research and we found that to be the best for our needs.  We are hiring a 'winnebago' style camper as we have two kids who will be coming along and also the one we have allows for a fifth person as Paul's brother will also be racing.  This is a very popular option so again, I would book it sooner rather then later.

 

The West Coast of Tasmania is very unpopulated, no major cities at all.  All the towns that you will be staying in are very small country towns so you will need to be well stocked up on provisions.  They do have small supermarkets, but very expensive.  There are no bike shops, although I believe that some bike parts will be for sale for the Wildside racers, it would be a good idea to make sure that you have all your bike needs and spares et before you head to Cradle Mountain.  Chemists are few and far between. The same for your energy drinks, bars etc.  Are you flying into Hobart or Launceston?
