Tassie guide to motorcycle heaven

Tasmania’s tourism boom is still running hot, and now it is motorcycle enthusiasts who are getting a good run. A popular motorcycling guidebook has been given prominent national coverage in the popular Just Bikes magazine as it caters to a growing market segment. And, for those keen to experience the Island State on two wheels, Throw Your Leg Over Tasmania could well end up being your most valuable travelling companion. The guide is described as a ‘Lonely Planet for motorcyclists’. It highlights 16 “awesome ride routes” and comes with detailed maps and directions. There is also a comprehensive directory of places to stay or camp. The creators, Alan Cox and Bridget Hallam, were inspired after they recently headed south: “We toured Tassie in October 2017 and again in April last year to find the best riding roads – pretty easy to do in Tassie – it’s a motorcycling nirvana!”
