Cycling is a great way to get to where you’re going while being active at the same time. If you feel a bit unsure about riding your bike on the road for the first time, or for longer distances, there are groups to support you. Here are some links that you might find helpful:

The Cycling South website contains road rules relating to cycling, cycle safety tips and links to Hobart Bike networks and cycling maps. Have a look here.
