Open House Hobart Historic Ride

Almost full. Once full, leave a comment below to go on the waiting list.

We're going on a sticky beak ride around some fascinating Hobart places.

Open House Hobart 2019 is about showing off fascinating and sometimes secret places to architecture fans, mystery lovers and history buffs.  

Ride Leader Greg Dutkowski has once again designed an easy riding route to take in a bunch of key historic buildings (see below).  The schedule includes some fixed bookings - note: he has booked those time slots for the group.  There is a limit of 15 riders for the booked tours, so do make sure you RSVP below to secure your place.  First come, first served!

We can adjust the schedule for other sites as we go, depending on peoples’ interests. Let Greg know if there is anything you particularly want to see.  Bring a bike lock. 

The ride will follow roads, footpaths and bikepaths where available, and is suitable for experienced riders.

Bring a picnic lunch or visit a nearby cafe in Salamanca Place for provisions.

Meet: at the Hobart Bicycle Network Office, 210 Collins Street, at 9.40am.  The ride will start at 9.50am.

Expected finish time: 4.30pm, back at 210 Collins Street.
