Bartlett, McKim go on bike ride together April 10, 2010 AAP Tasmanian Premier David Bartlett and Greens leader Nick McKim have gone on a two-hour bike ride together as Labor prepares to form a minority government. Governor Peter Underwood decided this week that Labor should retain government following the March 20 election's split result. The Greens decided on Thursday to back a minority Labor government. Mr Bartlett and Mr McKim went for a mountain bike ride up Mount Wellington on Saturday morning, with the premier saying the two had spent their time discussing the future, but stressing that no deals were made. "As I have said before, if the new parliament is to work we need to build trust and this meeting was the first step towards this," Mr Bartlett said in a statement. Mr McKim said Mr Bartlett rang him on Friday afternoon to suggest the ride. "We have both said that we want to restore trust, and the ride was a great way to begin that process," Mr McKim said in a statement. "Getting on the bikes was a great idea. We both love riding, and it gave us the chance to spend some time with each other in an informal setting." Š 2010 AAP
