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.

Hi, I'm Louise Wallace the new WAMBA President. I thought I'd say HI and mention a few big things happening in WAMBA and in Mountain Biking in WA in the next 12 months. 

In the last 12 months, thanks to the previous committee, we have set a course for some big changes to our activities and our structure as an organisation. These changes are needed so that we can provide better support to clubs and groups and work toward our collective goals for the bigger picture. 

So, looking ahead we are excited about these key projects for Wamba:
  • Rewriting our Constitution
  • Developing & Launching our Strategic Plan 
  • Developing a Riders Code of Conduct 
  • Our Slush Grant Scheme (Who wants $1000 for trails projects? Come on!) 

And these key projects for Mountain Biking in WA, with which we are intimately involved:
  • the State Strategy 
  • the South West Master Plan
  • the Perth Peel Master Plan
  • WA Mountain Bike Guidelines being developed by the Mountain Bike Working Group 

And many more that our committee members are driving. 

In the last few years WAMBA, as well as the clubs around the state, have formed some great relationships with Dept of Parks & Wildlife, Dept of Sport & Rec and Westcycle, who have offered considerable support for mountain biking in recent times. I look forward to their continued support for mountain biking and seeing what we can achieve together.

While we are taking on a more strategic approach statewide, WAMBA continues to support and foster grass-roots initiatives until they find their feet. So if you have ideas or want to get involved and don't know where to start, our door is open. 

Stay tuned for our upcoming newsletter to get the latest on what's happening around the state.

See you out on the trails soon.

All positions will be open for election and we are always keen to meet new volunteers interested in improving mountain biking in WA.

The popular trails in the Margaret River Pines have been changed slightly to now all be one loop, which will make it easier for riders to find their way around.

All of the new link trails have been completed and trail head maps and signing will be updated shortly.
