I'm sure a lot of you Hobart riders have complained about the Taroona bike lanes in the past. Here's my little whinge: http://marc.durdin.net/2011/08/hobart-b ... -bike.html

I ride along this road most days of the week too.
For the moment, it's not such a big issue for me, as I ride a MTB, and can go over most obstacles. However, they do slow me down.
As an ex-courier, I just try to stay as far to the left as possible.

I believe that Kingborough council have been discussing the upgrade of the bicycle lanes, as well as including more around the Bonnet Hill area.
They are a fairly progressive council with great support from Treadlies.

Do you do bunny hops over the wheelie bins? :wink:

Yep, fat tyres certainly help on some of those obstacles but cars and wheelie bins are probably insurmountable for most unless your name happens to be Danny McAskill :-)

Speaking of bunny hops over wheelie bins, I was talking to my mate Roy today, and he casually mentioned that he managed a 900+mm (up) bunny hop a few years back! :shock: That's a bit out of my league :)

Been a while since I looked at this :)
I'm now on a road bike, so I'm a bit more cautious of late. Mostly when it comes to those looonng cracks in the road from subsidence up past the Shot Tower.

I have yet to come across those pesky wheelie bins :shock:
