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.

To participate in a TBUG ride you will need to be insured. We provide two options (if you don’t have cover through another policy such as another cycling organisation):
1. You can ride for three rides for free to "Come and Try". Following three rides you need to be insured.
2. Through our affiliation with Cycling Australia (via Cycling Tasmania), we can offer 24/7 personal accident and public liability insurance for your recreational, training, commuting and TBUG riding. This is $79 for individuals (concessions apply) and includes TBUG membership AND insurance.
We are always looking for enthusiastic people to help organise or run events. Find more details on the Activities Committee page.
