The perfect way to travel Tasmania’s lovely East Coast is on a bicycle. That’s the promise behind Bicycle Victoria’s Great Tasmanian Bike Road in February, 2007.

The ride starts at the Launceston Festival on Saturday, February 10, and finishes in Hobart the following Sunday. The route winds through Pipers Book, Branxholm, St Helens, Bicheno, Swansea, Orford and Richmond.

In her own words:

My husband and I have lived in Australia since 1974 but it was not until 2004 that we decided to visit the only State we had yet to see — Tasmania.

It was long overdue and was very much an eyeopener for both of us.

We were immediately struck by the beauty of the countryside and the friendliness of the wonderful people.
