A wrap-up of the week’s cycling for me.
I tried a new local cycle trail that came into view as we were finally allowed to drive a new section of 4 lane highway on the Midland Highway. Unbeknown to us the works had included a shared cycleway. It currently runs from a difficult to access point north of Perth to an access road leading onto the new highway at Breadalbane.
Hopefully some further work will be done to safely link it to Perth. If access could be worked out across the Breadalbane roundabout then the trail could be linked with the road to Kings Meadows with it’s cycle lanes thus providing a safer way to cycle from the south into Launceston.
Even though access was tricky, I met 8 cyclists while riding it. A couple of couples and a Dad with kids were enjoying the day with me. I decided to attempt a vid of the ride and the resulting shambles can be found here.
