Tasmanian Mountain Bike Plan

Significant increases in participation in mountain biking in Tasmania required a framework for the co-ordinated development, management and marketing of mountain bike opportunities in the State.

The project involved an extensive research and a state-wide consultation program including a highly successful online rider survey. The Plan sets out strategies covering a future vision, governance, adopting a hierarchy of trails and locations, classification system, innovative design and construction, leading events, marketing and promotion, risk management, resource commitment and education.

The Plan has been adopted by the State Government and has since become a catalyst for assisting planning for a range of other mountain bike projects within the State.
