Is a step to a more simple mode of transport the answer to Hobart's growing traffic congestion?
Tasmanian streetscapes could soon be revolutionised, if advice raised at the Bike Future's conference in Hobart is taken on board.
The event discussed the benefits of cycling and how bikes could combat transport challenges such as Hobart's growing traffic congestion.
Yesterday's conference heard that getting on a bike may not only help ease the traffic problems, but even work in the fight against obesity.
The key speakers raised the idea of changing infrastructure on the state's roads, so bikes and cars could travel safely and in harmony.
