Bike Week Safety Forum March 9
Our major event for Bike week 2017 is a road safety forum on Thursday March 9 from 7:00pm at the Launceston Town Hall Reception Centre. Our guest will be Professor Paul Salmon from the University of the Sunshine Coast. Under the banner We are all in this together making our roads safer for all users Paul will focus on key questions such as current interactions between road users, road design and how to reduce inattention and improve driver awareness.
TBUG argues for more appropriate sentencing
We have recently made a submission to the state government arguing for more consistency in the sentencing of drivers who injure or kill cyclists. Recently there have been some tragic examples of drivers injuring or killing cyclists and receiving inadequate sentences. Download our submission here
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.
