Welcome to the Assault on Tasmania 09 page
In March of 2009, FJR13 members are planning on assaulting the gentle isle of Tasmania. 7– 9 days of riding around some of the most exciting premier roads and places that Tasmania and perhaps even mainland Australia has to offer.
This is a major event for FJR13.org and all are invited to attend. An itinerary has been created as a guide for your perusal by the man on the spot in Tasmania Fjreggie, aka Peter. This itinerary is a guide only, and is aimed to help everyone get the most out of the trip.
The itinerary is available for download from the web site home page and also in the forum. This is an Excel file and it contains macros linking to maps and other useful information. This file will be updated regularly.
By sticking together as a group, it is hoped that we can get various discounts on things like accommodation and the trip across on the ferry.
As March is "high season" for the tourist industry, it will be advisable to have all accommodation booked well in advanced.
Depending on numbers attending, it may be difficult to get enough accommodation at the one venue. Therefore the sooner we book the easier it will be.
Everyone will have different priorities & expectations of their tour in Tasmania. Members coming to the TASSIE ASSAULT 2009 should not feel obliged to adhere to this itinerary. Feel free to leave or join the group as you wish. You may even want to come earlier or stay a while longer.
Some places of interest:
Boags Brewery tour.
Mt Elephant Pancake Parlour. YUMMMM!
Port Arthur Historic tour
Iconic Cradle Mountain.
Spectacular roads and scenery.
Welcome/Farewell Dinner and trophies.
Peter, aka Fjreggie.
A quiet speaking mild mannered gentleman by day, Tour itinerary organiser maestro by night. The amount of work he has put into making the intinerary is simply outstanding. This tour would not be if it wasn't for him.
Wayne, aka Lassie.
Wayne is organising tour goodies such as the tour shirt, with embroidered club logo and names.
The itinerary is availble for download below, and contains day by day routes, accommodation venues, and other assorted tidbits. There is also PDF forms for the ferry crossing which gives FJR13.ORG members a 20% discount. Availble only to those going on the tour.
