Five unique mountain bike locations and experiences

  • Launch of a Master Plan to guide the development of mountain biking in the South West
  • Plan set to transform the region into an international destination for mountain biking

South West Mountain Bike Master Plan

Today in Margaret River, the Hon. Albert Jacob, MLA, Minister for Environment officially launched the South West Mountain Bike Master Plan. WestCycle has developed the plan in consultation with WAMBA, State Government, Local Government, Cape Mountain Bikers, Collie Mountain Bike Club, Dunsborough Cycle Club, MRORCA and the mountain bike community. 

The vision of the plan is to enable the world-class development of an innovative, high quality and cohesive network of trails, which offer varied experiences and cater for the progression and diverse styles of riding while maintaining local character. 

The implementation of the plan will see the South West developed into an international destination of choice for Mountain Bike tourism and provide significant opportunities to West Australians to experience world-class trails.
