Commuting in Launceston

No, not a bowling alley. LCC has painted a bunch of on road cycle lanes around the city and suburbs and some more are planned. Already there has been some backlash from motorists who find the concept of sharing the road, and even giving up some of their road disturbing. We need to use, and be seen to be using these lanes, and even writing the Exagerater (Examniner) a letter or email, or getting on local talkback radio to show our support and help motorists to understand why these lanes have been marked.

Send a friendly email to [email protected] and tell him how much we appreciate his and the council's efforts.
