Maps and Routes

  • Check out our Area Ambassador collection of rides designed to help visitors and locals enjoy the best our State has to offer on two wheels!  Experienced ride leaders have selected safe and scenic routes and done all of the planning for you.  Our Ambassador routes are powered by the Ride with GPS website and app.  More routes are being added all the time, so check in now and then to see what's new!
  • You can also take a look at the routes favoured by our Social Ride leaders - run through the rides listed in our Social Rides calendar and see if anything takes your fancy.  Come on one of our rides to check out the route with the support of an experienced local rider.
  • Online bike path maps:
    • OpenStreetMap  Open source, and better than Google Maps on many occasions, OpenStreetMap relies on citizens adding useful information to it.  Bicycle Network Tasmania has volunteers ready to add any updates to OpenStreetMap that you think are required.  Drop a line to Graham at Graham.Humphries@stategrowth.tas.gov.au.
