Roll around the Moonah Art Crawl

We’re teaming up with Moonah Arts Centre to celebrate the opening night of their Art Crawl on 23 February with a group ride taking in all the different artworks between 5.15 and 7 pm.

To warm you up there will also be a ride along the Corridor of Modern Art on the same night between 4 and 5 pm.

To make it easier for people who may not have ridden for a while we’re holding Back on your Bike warm-up sessions on 21 and 23 February, 10–11.30 am, and an All Abilities Moonah Art Crawl ride on 24 February, 1–2 pm.

The free art rides are being led by the highly creative Sallie, who will meet participants at the Station Street Reserve with bikes and trikes ready to exercise the legs and right side of the brain.

Devonport road strategy out for comment

Devonport Council is calling for comment on its Road Network Strategy 2023 – 2028 (RNS) before 2 March 2023.

The 3 main goals in the strategy are to make roads safer, better connected for all transport modes and promoting more sustainable transport.

Of the 22 actions suggested, several relate to improving bike safety:

  • Implement facilities to improve safety for people walking and riding in the CBD.
  • Remove conflict between heavy vehicles and bikes on Wright St by providing a safe cycling route between Victoria Bridge and Eastside Village.
  • Pursue funding to finish the Stoney Rise Rd path between Middle and Durkins roads.
  • Identify safety and connectivity issues for bike riders and fix them.
