Cycling and Mountain Biking in Tasmania
Tasmania's varied terrain is ideal for cycling and biking – from cross country to downhill, to relaxing rides along quiet country roads with scenic coastal views.
In Tasmania you can do everything from an easy one-hour scenic ride through to a three-week cycling holiday along Tasmania's west coast, listed by Lonely Planet as one of the best cycling routes in the world.
And if the hills on the west coast are a little confronting then you can still enjoy a fantastic ride along Tasmania's beautiful east coast.
For the more adventurous, there are mountain bike parks and trails found across the state. Many are within easy reach of our major cities, including Hobart's Mount Wellington, Glenorchy Mountain Bike Park and Clarence Mountain Bike Park.
Tasmania's north-east also offers some of the best mountainside rides in Australia and is fast becoming a cycling and mountain biking (MTB) hub. There are kilometres of purpose-built track at Hollybank Forest Reserve and the Blue Derby Mountain bike trails around Derby.
Tour operators offer tours for all fitness levels and for all ages and abilities.
With stunning views around every corner, Tasmania is a great place to ride a bike.
