Hobart Gravel Grinders / Bottles and Chains / Shit Yeah Jan Heine


There are regular ‘unofficial’ group rides happening 42 south. Keen for some gravel action? Like riding bikes other than MTBs on dirt? Have a boner for 650b? We can probably offer you a fix, no matter what type of whip you ride.

Places to hit up? Start with Facebook. Try the following VDL groups:

…we’re talking about a VERY eclectic riding group here, fixed, SS MTB, SSCX, geared disk Gravel Grinders, roadies and even some hardcore bike packers (Tour Divider, Hugh I’m pointing at you). Look ANY of these groups up if you’re on (or bound for) the Southern Isle, you won’t regret it.



Plenty of gravel rides happening in Southern Tasmania this spring:

  • Barnback to the Weld
  • She-Oak Road to Ta-Anne
  • Sherwood Hill to Halls Track
  • Kaoota Tramway descent

and at least one in the North:

  • Jacobs Ladder climb to Ben Lomond
