    The proposal of 1.0m up to 60k and 1.5m over 60k needs to become law sooner rather than later.

    But will it change the attitude of some drivers. I find most drivers are reasonable.

    I am aware that in France and California, USA ( not sure about the rest of USA) they have this rule in place. Also a driver is deemed responsible if he/she hits a cyclist. I found cycling in California much safer than here.

    I think this rule would change the attitude of drivers more than anything.

    I must say that cyclists must also observe road rules the same as a car drivers.

    Hi,

    I thought you may find this interesting especially for many of the hills around our cities – could be used in Napoleon St Battery Point

    Can you please tell us about your level of advocacy regarding the increasing number of Tasmanian cyclists who are simply being run over and killed each year by motorists ? Two innocent cyclists last year, of a very small population. Are you holding public rallies ? Are you banding with nationwide groups for greater pressure for legislative change ? Are you looking at research into this ? eg distractability and iphone usage ? Are you using social media as an advocacy tool ?

    Hi,

    I’m working on a comms plan to reach out to riders and other users of the Wellington Park tracks; more on this soon. In the meantime I hope you can help spread the word…

    cheers

    TRACK CLOSURE

    Grays Fire Trail, Wellington Park à Pipeline Track south of Silver Falls, via private property and Hobart City Council property


    This illegally constructed track will shortly be closed. Reasons:


    - It has been cut/built across privately owned property without the landowner’s permission

    - It has been cut/built within Wellington Park without approval

    - Unauthorised track construction jeopardises Park values and the amenity and safety of Park users. The Park values are protected by Regulations which provide for hefty penalties.

    - This environment is home to sensitive communities of flora and fauna, including threatened species and sites of aboriginal and European cultural heritage; this is why proper surveys are done before track work is authorised.


    Rehabilitation work will be costly and time consuming: resources which are otherwise used for maintenance and construction of tracks in Hobart’s Bushland reserves including Wellington Park.


    If you are interested in growing the track network, see below for how you can get informed and involved.


    Information about Regional MTB Track Planning

    Last year the Wellington Park Management Trust, the Hobart City Council, other adjoining local councils and MTB riders collaborated to prepare the Greater Hobart Mountain Bike Masterplan. The plan highlighted a number of opportunities to better provide for MTB riding in the greater Hobart region. Click on project updates to see how all land managers are progressing with projects in their area.


    MTB Track Building opportunities

    The Hobart Trail Groomers are actively looking for riders to help build and maintain tracks in the Meehan Range and Glenorchy Mountain Bike Park. Find them on facebook or via DirtDevils and other websites.


    The Wellington Park Management Trust and the Hobart City Council ask all riders to respect track development processes, which are already in train, and which will benefit everyone if allowed to run their course. A large number of riders have cooperated with land managers in the track planning process and we thank them sincerely for this.


    For any further information you can contact the Wellington Park Ranger Ben Masterman on 0408 517 534, or the Hobart City Council Bushland Project Officer Richard Greenhill on 6238 2886.

    Can you encourage the use of an audible warning ( bell, verbal etc) when riding on a shared footpath and approaching pedestrians from the rear. This is really important when pedestrian is walking a dog, as the dog is likely to suddenly change lanes.This is a accident waiting to happen, in this situation.
