Stretching over 1060km from Mundaring to Albany, in South-West Western Australia, the Munda Biddi Trail is an off-road cycling trail like no other. Every day on the Trail is different - ride amongst towering eucalypts and pristine ancient bushland, past rolling pastures and wind-shaped coastal ecosystems. Camp in purpose-built shelters, or stay in the trail towns along the way. Ride the the Trail for an hour, a day, overnight, or the ultimate Munda Biddi experience, the End to End
The Munda Biddi Trail is a world-class, nature-based, off-road cycling experience. From Mundaring to Albany, the Trail traces a 1000km track through undeveloped natural habitat.
Your experience on the Trail will be greatly enhanced with preparation, planning and some knowledge of the basic principles of cycling fitness, gear, technique and safety. You can find useful and important information on the Trip Planning pages.
Riding the Trail can be exhilarating, but can also be difficult in some sections. The most essential element to enjoying your Trail experience is to plan a ride that is suitable for your fitness and skill level. While much of the Trail terrain is gently undulating, there are some challenging sections and cyclists should prepare for this. Be sure to start with small journeys and increase the kilometres as your fitness increases.
The time it takes to complete each section will depend on your fitness, skill level and whether you are carrying camping gear. Unlike cycling and touring on sealed roads, cycling off-road is different because the trail surfaces vary. You will need to allow for more time when you plan your trip. As a guide, if you can usually ride 80km a day on sealed roads or bike paths, you should only aim to cycle 40-50km off-road.
The Parks and Wildlife Services have developed free digital map files of the Munda Biddi Trail. It’s recommended to use these in conjunction with the hardcopy maps. Do not rely purely on any electronic equipment – batteries might go flat, the device may fail or break, and can be unreliable in areas of little to no network coverage. In addition, the digital maps do not include any trail diversions that may be constructed.
Check the Parks and Wildlife website for any trail diversions, closures, prescribed burns and current trail conditions before and during your adventure. These realignments are developed for your safety. Each diversion will be marked and there will be signage placed at either end on the Trail.
