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.

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

The WAMBA committee would like to thank Lindsay Alsop for his hard work as Vice-President over the last 5 years. An original member of the committee that re-founded WAMBA, his achievements include project managing the Mt Gunjin trails and building Luvin Shovels. Refusing to take No for an answer he has raised the profile of mtbiking within government agencies.

Lindsay has decided to take a step back from WAMBA due to the demands of a young family and his commitments with the Kalamunda Mountain Bike Collective. We are very pleased that he will still be active in trail advocacy in WA.

WAMBA are taking nominations to fill the Vice-President role, to be elected at our next committee meeting on 26th August. Nominations are open to:
  • A member of the committee
  • An individual member of WAMBA
  • An individual member of a club affiliated to WAMBA 
The role of Vice President requires attendance at committee meetings, but is what you make it.

If you are interested or would like more information about the role or committee, or to put your nominations forward prior to the next meeting contact WAMBA President, Louise Wallace (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) before 26th August.

  

In 2008 West Australians were asked to nominate their top trails and over 50, including the Bibbulmun Track, are now on the Trails WA website. What do you think? Is there a great trail out there than should also be on this list? Let them know about it!

If you had a friend coming to WA for a few days – which trail would you recommend that would provide them with a memorable and enjoyable experience?

To be selected as a Top Trail the trail has to be of a high standard and provide a memorable or unique experience. 

The nominations will be assessed taking the following factors into consideration:

  • point of difference
  • accessibility
  • meeting / exceeding expectations
  • safety
  • community involvement
  • cultural awareness
  • value-adding facilities (e.g. bike hire available nearby)

Gone are the days of scratching trails to our hearts content. Recently people have indicated that scratching backs might be a way to get back to the old days or get things moving in Margs. MRORCA have only been around for 4 years and most of us believe we have achieved a lot, but it's not clear to everyone as much of it has not transpired to on the ground trails yet. 

See the link below for some answers to a few typical questions we receive and a little bit of info on whats happening in Mountain Biking in the state. Most of us believe we are on the verge of seeing significant investment and development of trails in Margaret River, but it's going to take time.

This has been created as a basic summary of all things trail related. If anyone wants more detailed information, I am happy to discuss face to face.
