What are the benefits of bike riding in moving people around in Tasmania? 

  • assist in reducing the number of vehicles on the road – thus reducing emissions

  • assist in maintaining healthy lifestyles and activities

  • enable a greater connection to nature and the environment around you

What are your policies to encourage bike riding in Tasmania?

  • to advocate for healthy choices in lifestyle activities

  • to support projects that fit with encouraging the above

  • to advocate for bicycle infrastructure in new projects

  • to support projects introducing bike usage on existing infrastructure where appropriate

How is the population motivated to use bicycles instead of cars?

  • Healthy living and getting people active is essential and the community needs to get healthier and active.  The creation of new bikeways would obviously lead to greater usage and be the greatest encouragement to get more people on bikes. 

In an ideal world the provision of infrastructure that allows choices of transportation would be wonderful so we need progressive infrastructure initiatives.

  • Australia as a whole does fairly poorly with bicycle infrastructure compared to other parts of the world

  • the bicycle is a simple and inexpensive solution to traffic problems

  • urbanisation creates demand for the need to reduce the stress on transport systems

  • the obesity problem is caused not only by over-eating but a sedentary lifestyle

  • a significant way of combatting pollution is reducing cars on the road thus conserving energy and improving environmental outcomes

  • The benefits of exercise are underestimated and its contribution to better mental health and well being, reduction of stress are invaluable

Healthier and happier - the goals of the 21st Century - so the provision of improved infrastructure that will encourage healthier lifestyles and more people utilising bikes.
