- Mountain Bike Project Proposals
The City of Hobart has just released its draft plan for an expanded mountain bike track network on kunanyi / Mount Wellington and they want to hear what you think via their Your Say Hobart website!
The City of Hobart have completed their consultation process on Riding the Mountain: Proposed Mountain Bike Network Plan for the kunanyi Mt Wellington trail network.
Things are looking good for mountain biking on the West Coast with the Liberal National's Senator, Steve Martin, promising $2.5 million to fund the west coast's entire mountain biking strategy and Labor's Justine Keay announcing a $1.2 million funding commitment to develop the Mount Owen trails.
At their December 2018 meeting, the West Coast Council have decided not to proceed with the proposed gravity trails in Queenstown (the final stage of the West Coast Mountain Bike Project started in 2014 as a job creation program following the closure of the Mt Lyell mine) and instead seek new proposals and funding to try and construct a product that will attract riders to the West Coast.
