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.

2011 LCC Candidate Survey
Bicycle Tasmania recently conducted a survey of the candidates for the 2011 Launceston City Council elections.
Only Pedley, Waddle, Ellison, Ball, Soward, McKenzie, Gibson and Peck did the survey. (Peck and Pedley did it twice) Judge for yourselves. The good thing is that there is good commitment to bike lanes, although some impose conditions.
