Revisiting Pemberton Mountain Bike Park

Passing through Pemberton in the southern forests of Western Australia, we couldn’t resist visiting the Pemberton Mountain Bike Park again for a ride on the mountain bikes. We begin with a warm up in the dirt jump section adjacent the car park. Earlier in the year I was a bit hesitant with the jumps but a couple of months practice at the Goat Farm back in Perth and I’m comfortable with ...

This also means access to a larger number of trails in the area and an opportunity to ride deeper in the forest as well as a few runs down the reasonably steep Mt Gunjin. Set in regrowth forest the mountain bike trails meander through ...

Cycle the Railway Reserves Heritage Trail

We've wanted to experience the Railway Reserves Heritage trail for a while now and with a promise of flowing waterfalls thanks to a rather generous winter season we thought it was perfect timing to put our plans into action. The 41 km trail loop traces the old eastern railway line, passing through neighbourhoods grown from early settlement towns and the state’s John Forrest National Park. Offering glimpses into Western Australia’s past, ...

First time at the Goat Farm Mountain Bike Park

The Goat Farm Mountain Park is located in Greenmount National Park, just off Great Eastern Hwy (94) and under 10km from Midland Train Station. The plan was to ride the blue cruiser trail to cannonball, and while I would continue down the blue cross country trail, Derek would take a black downhill trail. We began our morning at the skills park and were having such a great time that we didn’t ...

Road trip to Pemberton Mountain Bike Park

Following a long weekend in Binningup we embarked on a slightly ambitious journey to drive down to Pemberton to check out the town’s mountain bike park before driving back to Perth, the very same day, and in time to prepare for work the next day. A quick calculation and that’s about 6 hours of driving for the day. Oh boy. The good thing about being in Binnginup is that we were ...

First time guide at Kalamunda MTB Circuit

The Kalamunda circuit area combines a range of different trails so you'll never grow bored, 1 year later and we've only covered a quarter of the trails and there's 40km of them. Cross country, technical, jumps and downhill. Plus it's all located in bushland where you may spot a Kangaroo. And afterwards finish your ride with a refreshment from the Camel Farm Cafe. I have to admit the first time I ...

Mountain biking the Munda Biddi

The Munda Biddi Trail is an adventurous 1,000km off road mountain bike trail stretching from Mundaring to Albany. It meanders through all sorts of terrain and some incredible forest systems. There are unenclosed huts with basic toilets along the trail or alternatively the trail passes through small towns, giving riders an opportunity to spend the night and stock up on supplies. We completed a small portion of the trail in the southwest section of Western Australia ...

Munda Biddi here we come!

Tomorrow morning we leave on a short trip down south for mountain biking along the Munda Biddi track around Donnelly River and Manjimup. I am super excited but at the same time I'm not sure what to expect. I am looking forward to being 'out of range', gazing up at the stars at night and waking in a new location each day. I'm hoping the track isn't too muddy from ...
