Mountain bikers input needed

The City of Hobart is tapping into the minds of its mountain bike community through a new survey as it explores new ways of improving riding experiences in the lower foothills of kunanyi/Mt Wellington.

Lord Mayor Anna Reynolds said "Hobart led the way for mountain biking in Tasmania when it opened the first stage of the iconic North-South Track on kunanyi/Mt Wellington more than a decade ago."

"The sport has since exploded in popularity across the state and so we want to hear from the Hobart mountain bike community about how we can take riding on the mountain to the next level.

"We want to understand how the existing track network is being used, the type of riding experiences riders are having and what they’d like to see from a future track network.”

The City is running a mountain bike survey on its Your Say Hobart website. The survey is open until March 28 and aims to better understand the needs of the Hobart mountain bike community.

The Lord Mayor said "The Hobart mountain bike community is already helping to shape new mountain bike rides in the foothills of kunanyi/Mt Wellington by taking part in the City’s Trackcare program, and information collected from this survey will help us build on this work and develop a mountain bike network plan that we can put into action once funding becomes available.”
