Coddiwomple on the Kalamunda MTB Collective Trails

The conditions were looking fantastic to be up in the Perth Hills and Monday blues would have to wait another day as I was going to Kalamunda Mountain Bike Collective to cycle a 24.3km cross country loop of the collective by combining a number of blue graded single trails through the forest starting and ending at the Camel farm. The mountain bike ride begins from the Camel Farm and right into the ...

We begin with a warm up in the dirt jump section adjacent the car park.

Set in regrowth forest the mountain bike trails meander through ...

It's a small mountain bike park but jam packed with skill challenging riding. Winter has encouraged ...

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.

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 ...
