Journeys : Dec Jan 2010
the skyline from most angles. Sunday mor nings have become an early mor ning start for some mountain bike riding with a group run by the famous Launceston trainer Mark Connelly. As many as 50 people turn up, some with kids in tow, to ride around designated tracks at the Trevallyn Reser ve. The kookaburras laugh, the weather varies (we once rode in a most spectacular thunderstorm) and the riding can be fiercely fast and furious but to some of us, just a gentle mor ning's exercise. My ambition is not to get lapped more than once in a five-lap course. Because I have various authors come to Launceston to speak at the shop I have a couple of favourite restaurants where I like to take them. If it has been an event at night I like to share the fine fare at Novaro's in Brisbane Street, where we can be sure Nick has high-quality fresh produce and Sarah provides the best welcome you may get anywhere. In the day I like to show-off the Tamar and enjoy the view back to Launceston from Daniel Alps restaurant at Strathlyn. Clive Tilsley is the owner of Fullers Bookshop, which operates in Hobart and Launceston. He has been a Tasmanian since the age of two and was educated both in Launceston and Hobart. He spends a lot of time reading and is interested in art, literature and poetry. The little tow ns that surround Launceston are a delight and a trip to Evandale or Longford can now not only take in spectacular views across the Norther n Midland plain but also good food and coffee shops. Having now been back in Launceston for eight years, I've found what a friendly place it is and how it's easy to get a smile along with a 'good morning' to go with the view to Ben Lomond, the fragrance of Boags being brewed and the chimes of the Launceston Post Office clock -- all special highlights of my city.
