Our Vision

Mountain biking is recognised as a mainstream, positive and family-friendly activity, where everyone is or knows a mountain biker 

And for Western Australia to embrace sustainable mountain biking as a leading recreational and tourism experience by delivering opportunities, maximising participation and sharing the benefits 

 

West Australian Mountain Bike Association (WAMBA) is the state representative body for the West Australian mountain bike community.

A volunteer organisation, WAMBA works collaboratively with key stakeholders to identify, develop and sustain mountain bike experiences in Western Australia.

WAMBA also acts as a resource for clubs looking for help on trail advocacy and grants, and co-ordinates the racing calendar.

 

Key Result Areas (KRA) for 2015 - 2017 are:

  • Leadership, Governance and Management

  • Participation

  • Trails, Facilities and Infrastructure

  • Capacity Building

 

History

The West Australian Mountain Bike Association (WAMBA) was officially launched in 1996 as a body principally designed to represent the interests of mountain bikers in Western Australia, with a vision of being "run by mountain bikers for all mountain bikers". The Association's mission was to develop and promote mountain biking in Western Australia for the benefit and enjoyment of all mountain bikers, of all disciplines and all levels of ability.

Reformed in 2010, WAMBA's primary role was in trail advocacy.

Initially several projects were completed in the Kalamunda, Perth area including finishing the Kalamunda Circuit, the Mount Gunjin trail, the Scorpion/ Farrell Grove extension and the Black Stump Pump Track. Other WAMBA projects around this time included the Skills Park at the Goat Farm, sign posting and maintenance work at Langford Park, Jarrahdale and, maintenance and upgrades to Marrinup in Dwellingup.

With the formation of the Kalamunda Mountain Bike Collective in 2013, WAMBA moved to higher, state-wide strategic advocacy role. The Association is now recognised as the state representative body for the West Australian mountain bike community.

WAMBA has been involved in the following strategic projects:
