BICYCLE VALET PARKING

Blundstone Arena has teamed up with the Bicycle Network of Tasmania for a free and secure valet bike parking service. It will be open by the Northern Gate from 11:30 to 16:45. 
Blundstone Arena is perfectly placed to ride your bike to. The Clarence Foreshore Trail runs right past it and that means riding a bike to the cricket or football is a viable choice for Eastern Shore residents from Geilston Bay to Howrah, particularly for families. People from other areas can Park ‘n Ride, leaving your car at a spot handy to the Clarence Foreshore Trail.

The access from the Clarence Foreshore Trail to that corner of the grounds is via a new path through a carpark on the southern side of the arena, and then along a (hopefully) quiet stretch of Beach Street. Watch out for traffic in this last section of your ride. The below map outlines some ideas that patrons can park and ride from on the Eastern Shore:​
