We are a group of university students and professionals who choose to ride bikes when we can and commute hundreds of kilometers a week in the pursuit of happiness and health!
We are striving to assist with the push for healthier transport options in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia, so that one day we’ll all be out of jobs and have more time to experience this beautiful world without so much suffering.
Healthy Transport Hobart is a health advocacy group for safer cycling and walking transport environments in the greater hobart region. As daily bike commuters we are frustrated by a lack of basic infrastructure, traffic calming and facilities to make our journey’s a possibility for others. We are a voluntary self funded group who regularly make submissions to consultations and planning processes in relation to bicycle and pedestrian friendly changes. We also support Hobart’s monthly Courteous Critical Mass ride by investigating different routes, inviting celebrities, requesting police presence and offering free bike maintenance, tyre air, fresh fruit and spot prizes.
