Tell Us What You Want

Single Track Minds are currently preparing the WA State Mountain Biking Strategy. The strategy will look at current and future mountain biking opportunities across the state and provide a a framework for the future development of trails, and mountain biking opportunities in WA.

STM encourage all mountain bikers to become involved and have their say through completing an online survey. The information will be used to help identify the best opportunities for mountain biking in the State, the expectations and needs of all levels and types of riders, and a way forward for future trail and infrastructure development. Your involvement is greatly appreciated and will help us make sure that this strategy reflects what all mountain bikers want and need.

Please feel free to contact Single Track Minds at any time if you would like to provide further information or have a chat with us. Or check out the Single Track Minds website for further information about the Strategy.

Skills Loop for the Kalamunda Circuit

WAMBA have been awarded $5,000 by the Heart Foundation of WA as part of the Community Healthy Eating and Physical Activity Grants scheme to develop a beginner loop and skills area connected to the Kalamunda Circuit. The Department of Environment and Conservation have approved the construction of this facility adjacent to the Camel Farm. From the outset WAMBA have been working with Rock 'n' Roll mountain biking on this project and they will be helping with design and construction. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Heart Foundation for the grant and Ian Humphrey of WAMBA and Mark Wardle of Rock 'n' Roll for their hard work.

The skills loop will consist of a 500m trail containing the usual obstacles found in WA (rock garden, berms, log roll overs etc). Accompanying each obstacle will be an instruction board providing some hints. There will be a further skills area with more challenges. The skills loop will be the perfect place for newer riders to the sport to hone their skills, for a gentle warm up before setting off on the full Kalalmunda Circuit or just to play around on and have some fun.


Pile Road Maintenance Day

The South West Mountain Bike club will be hosting a trail maintenance day at the Pile Road trail network on Sunday 29th July. Meet at the bottom trail head (across from the Wild Brew brewery) at 9am.

Trail maintenance tools will be provided. A sausage sizzle and cool drinks will be provided at lunch for the volunteers. Bring your bike for a quick ride before heading to the brewery to relax for the afternoon.

Kalamunda Circuit Trail Head Signs

Thanks to DEC there are great new Kalamunda Circuit trail head signs at the Dell, Black Stump car park and near to the Camel Farm. The sign at the Camel Farm contains a map of the trail. The others have maps as well as other useful information about riding the trail and a notice board. Look out for the latest Kalamunda Circuit trail building information on these boards.

The next trail building day will be on Sunday 29th July. Meet at 8am at the Dell.
