Mountain Biking in WA...and my expedition on the Munda Biddi

Mountain biking in WA has had its ups n downs over the years... but this article posted in the West Australian news this week gives hope of great things to come... That is not to say the mountain biking community haven't had some excellent support in the past with the Munda Biddi Trail  - a 900km trail between Perth and Albany which if in full operation is probably one of the longest dedicated MTB trails in the world.
In 2008 I joined a 5 day ride with a group of friends on the first 300 km or so from Perth to Collie. Being the days before Strava that ride is not logged but I have  a diary of it somewhere, some photos and my memory of the ride which gets more adventurous every year.

Next planned ride on the Munda Biddi?...Unknown. Although I intend to take the kids on the next expedition. Multi-day rides on the Munda Biddi involve sleeping out in the trail shelters, campfires, drinking from rivers, chasing (or getting chased by) wild emus and kangaroos, getting lost, cooking tins…
