Getting Started

The vast majority of rides taken on the Munda Biddi Trail are day trips or short rides of between two days and a week. Cyclists may drive up to the hills from Perth for the day, or base themselves in one of the towns along the Trail. The experience will differ depending on the time of year, the section ridden and the age-group, fitness or experience of the cyclists. Here is a list of things to think about before you get going for a day ride.

  • Purchase a Munda Biddi Trail map or the Munda Biddi Trail Guide App 
  • Using the maps or app, decide how far and for how long you want to cycle based upon the ability of the weakest or slowest cyclist in your group, the legal access points and the weather.
  • Decide whether you are able to do a straight through ride from one point to another (by doing a car shuffle using two cars) or a return ride.
  • Use only appropriate access points.
  • Adhere to the Leave No Trace principles.
  • Understand and abide by health, hygiene and safety guidelines.
  • Be first-aid trained.
  • Check the facilities out on the Trail so you know what to expect.
  • Tell someone where you are going and what time you expect to return.
