The role of local government in the development of cycling facilities cannot be underestimated. The four Councils in the metropolitan area of Southern Tasmania (Hobart, Glenorchy, Kingston, Clarence) are all progressing projects that will serve their local communities as well as visitors to their regions.
CyclingSouth is jointly funded by these four Councils, and is unique in Australia. It plays an important role in the orderly development of infrastructure in the south of the State. In conjunction with other cycling groups, it continues to develop programs that encourage more people to enjoy riding their bikes. And it plays an advocacy role for cyclists at all levels of government.
CyclingSouth is located at the Glenorchy Swimming Pool Complex, Anfield St, Glenorchy. The building is separate from the Glenorchy Pool entrance and has a door facing onto the adjacent car park. There is an asphalt apron outside the door with two yellow posts indicating No Parking. CyclingSouth signage also indicates the entrance.
Bicycle Network Tasmania has strong links with "TBUG", as TBUG engages in very similar advocacy work.
The Tasmanian Bicycle Council (TBC) is the peak body for recreational and transport cycling in Tasmania. Cycling organisations and Bicycle User Groups that share the goals of the TBC are welcome to apply for membership. Membership is not open to individuals.
