Our Ambassador bike maps for Tasmanian touring

Bicycle Network Tasmania has joined with the RideWithGPS team (based in Portland, Oregon) to produce a set of carefully curated routes which now give you the tools to enjoy a self guided tour on two wheels to some of the best destinations in Tassie. It's like riding with a savvy local who knows the bikepaths and quieter streets!

Take a look at the routes already in the collection.  We are working steadily on adding new ones over time. 

These routes are designed for people who like fun, social rides and for visitors.  Tell your friends who are planning to come to Tassie to check them out!    The routes are about the sights and activities along the way and are mostly on tracks, lanes and quiet roads. They can be as short as a couple of hours, or a day trip or a weekend away.   Using your bicycle is the best way to explore an unfamiliar region at a leisurely pace.

Our Social Ride Leaders have done all of the planning for you, and have chosen the safest, most scenic routes for your rides.  Our Social Ride Leader, Di Elliffe, will be adding more rides to the page in coming months.

Ride with GPS is set up to show distance, elevation, GPS markers and sights along the way. You can use the app on your phone while riding or print off a map and instructions from your home computer.
