Where to Ride Tasmania

Where to Ride Tasmania covers 45 great cycle rides around this great state.

Guiding you though 45 rides, this guide features accurate mapping, altitude profiles, point by point ride logs and a range of ride difficulties from one to five star ratings.

One star rides are within the abilities of most casual tourists, young children or beginner cyclists. Five star rides will have experienced cyclists grinning from ear to ear.

The rides in this book range right across the island, from family fun rides in Hobart and Launceston, to long days out on the open road, to single-track rushes on purpose-built mountain biking tracks.

There are few places in Tasmania where you can ride and not be impressed with the scenery. In these pages you will find routes that offer not just great pedalling but also scenes such as Cradle Mountain, Port Arthur, the Bay of Fires, Mount Roland, the tall timber of the Styx Valley, Mount Wellington, Mara Island, Bruny Island, Strahan, the Nut and Tasmania’s highest waterfall.

The book uses a gloss paper stock, tough enough to cope with the rigours of sweaty hands and plenty of use. Riders will appreciate the sturdy construction and convenient spiral binding of the book, this includes a fold out overview map of all 45 rides that doubles as a book marker with map legend, ride ratings and terrain guide. Riders can refer between the map they are using and reference information with ease.
