Building a Bike Riding Community
TBug is an incorporated not-for-profit organisation working to build a strong bike riding community whilst increasing cycle awareness and safety in and around the Tamar region.
TBUG launches new Launceston City Cycling Map
Our new map is a great way to cycle around Launceston. For the first time, all the off and on-road bike trails and bike lanes are displayed in one simple and easy-to-read map. Get yours today at local cafes and various other spots around town. Or you can download it here. Thanks to the City of Launceston for their support.
TBUG Voice builds a better bike city
Making Launceston more bike friendly is the key task of the Pedestrian and Bike Committee of Council (PBC). TBug has two seats on PBC. Thus we have a strong voice in how cycling in Launceston evolves. The two reps are myself and Malcolm Cowan. Follow our reports on the newsletter and let us know if you want anything raised.
Your membership helps TBug work to improve infrastructure, safety and participation for ALL bike riders – recreational, commuter and serious road riders.
