The Munda Biddi Trail, meaning "path through the forest" in the local indigenous language, is a world class cycling trail in southern Western Australia. The trail weaves its way from Albany to Mundaring just outside Perth, traversing a wide range of forest and coastal landscapes. Through Jarrah, Karri and Tingle forest, along the coast and through 15 picturesque South-West towns, all up the trail is over 1000 kilometres long.

On this tour we will complete 207km of the southern half of the trail over 6 unforgettable days. Ride free of trailers or heavy panniers as you will be supported by a vehicle. Stay in comfortable accommodation each night and enjoy having all delicious meals provided for you. All you need to do is pedal and admire the unique and stunning Western Australia landscape; our team will do the rest.

Itinerary

Today we transfer towards Albany, a port city on the edge of Princess Royal Harbour. The trip begins with an 7.45am pick up in Perth (from Wellington Street Tourist Coach Stand). We drive out through Perth's surrounding National Parks and State Forests, and inland through small settlements. With morning tea and lunch provided on the way, we will arrive on the south coast in Albany mid-afternoon and take a ride from the Visitor's Centre in Albany to Torbay. The ride is mostly easy going, with the odd hill. We check into our comfortable motel for a one night stay and enjoy an evening meal.

Meals:  L,D

After breakfast we get going for our first big ride. Our vehicle will transfer us back out to Torbay. Today's ride - Torbay to Denmark has a good riding surface with a few decent hills. There are plenty of opt out points along the way for those who wish to have a shorter day of riding; the vehicle can transfer you and tour bike directly to the accommodation. Our riding finishes in the town of Denmark where we will be staying for the next three nights.

Meals:  B,L,D

From Denmark it is easy going and a particularly scenic route out to Green’s Pool, one of Australia’s most beautiful beaches. There is then a long a long up hill section heading out towards Mt Shadforth, followed by a long down hill, to Scotsdale Road. The riding is mostly through farmland today. Again, those seeking an easier option, can shorten the day if they wish. At the end of the ride, the bus will be waiting to take us back to Denmark.

Meals:  B,L,D

A great day today! Most of the day will be through the towering Karri forest. We will pass one of the campsites (don’t worry we are not sleeping there!) which are beautifully built. There are a few short challenging sections today which will test us, but most of the route is classed as easy. The bus will be waiting for us at Nornalup Road, to take us back for our last night in Denmark.

Meals:  B,L,D

Today we will be changing accommodation. We will pack up and check out before we head out for the day. Today we spend the majority of the day riding through the back of the National Park. Our ride today is simply stunning, taking us past Mount Romance through dense forest of tall Karri and Tingle trees. The Tingle tree is one of the tallest eucalyptus found in Western Australia and can reach the lofty height of 55m and live up to 400 years. In the evening we check into our accommodation in Walpole.

Meals:  B,L,D

Our last day of our cycling adventure! A short ride this morning with a few challenges, so it is no easy push off into the sunset. We are given magnificent views of the expansive Nornalup Inlet at Coalmine Beach; a wonderful way to finish this unforgettable cycling journey. There will be time to enjoy a hot shower and our final lunch together before we transfer back to Perth and say farewell. We aim to drop you off in Perth by 4:30pm.

Grading

Moderate  
5

The Munda Biddi Cycling Adventure has a good amount of challenge, with mostly moderate terrain and not much in the way of technical riding. The greatest challenge “non riders” will be the amount of time in the saddle. The distances cycled each day vary, but range from 10 to 55km. There are some hills, some gravelly sections and some narrow trails on the route. This trip is graded moderate and is suitable for an intermediate rider. An intermediate rider is someone who can handle 3 to 4 hours of moderately paced pedal time each day, for several days in a row (although you can take days off from riding). Suggested preparation: In order to complete this trip we advise that you undertake regular cycling one or two times a week for at least three months prior to your departure. Doing a mix of other activities as well (swimming, walking, jogging) will help you to be feeling your absolute best and ready to get the most out of your Munda Biddi cycling experience. Cycling on a stationary bike is good but it's most beneficial to train on bike trails to get comfortable cycling on a variety of terrains and in variable conditions.

Frequently Asked Questions

We leave Perth at 8am on day 1. With an early departure, we recommend a night in Perth before the tour for those coming from interstate or overseas.

You’ll typically start your day with a group breakfast between 6:30am – 7:30 am, then hop in the support van to get to the trailhead. We stop regularly for photo opportunities, drink and snack breaks but will always stop after a 1.5 – 2 hour ride for a delicious morning tea on the trail. Some days lunch will be brought to us and other days we will find a shady spot with a great view to eat lunch on the trail. The support van is usually close by in the late morning or early afternoon for those ready to rest and relax while the more energetic push on for some more great riding. In the afternoon there is often spare time where we can check out local points of interest, enjoy an afternoon siesta or go exploring. When everyone has finished riding for the day we head back to the accommodation for a shower, dinner and a few drinks to celebrate a great days riding.

This trip is graded moderate and is suitable for an intermediate rider. An intermediate rider is someone who can handle 3 to 4 hours of moderately paced pedal time each day, for several days in a row (although you can take days off from riding). There will always be slower and faster riders on every trip; in general we try to cultivate a strong group dynamic so that people understand it’s not about finishing quickly or logging as many kilometres as possible on the odometer, but about enjoying the riding and scenery in the company of other riders, and that may require waiting every now and then.

While there is no specific skill requirements for our mountain bike tours (apart from being able to actually ride a bike!) you should be comfortable and familiar with riding in a variety of terrains including gravel roads, small sandy sections and up/down hills. Our guides are experienced mountain bikers who will teach you the skills to ride with confidence if necessary however it will be more enjoyable for you if you already have some familiarity with a mountain bike.

The cycling is varied throughout the trip. There are some hills, some gravelly sections and some narrow trails all of which can be challenging. There is not much in the way of technical riding.

It is your holiday, so if you feel like a day off, it is not a problem at all. Most days it is also possible to ride a half day if you would prefer.

Of course! If you are electing to bring your own bike, it is important that you have a bike fit for purpose. This will be different for every person, as we all have different skills, fitness and opinions and there is no bike made for every scenario.

You will be provided with a helmet and bike on this trip.

You can either bring a backpack or pannier to put on the bike. If you don’t have panniers, you can hire these.
