Please be careful when cycling during the hot summer months.

Bushfires occur every year in Western Australia. Safe mountain biking means planning for bushfire emergencies before leaving home.

Avoid riding in the bush on days of severe, extreme or catastrophic fire danger or if there is smoke or fire in the area. You can check the Fire Danger Ratings on the Department of Fire & Emergency Services (DFES) website:

WestCycle is pleased to announce that detailed mountain bike trail planning is set to commence at three sites in Margaret River, Wellington and Pemberton.

Identified as priorities for development by the emerging South West Mountain Bike Master Plan, consultant Common Ground Trails will work with the local mountain bike communities, land managers and other key stakeholders to develop frameworks to guide and inform trail design and construction in the sites. 

This is another important and exciting step towards delivering high quality sustainable trails on the ground in the South West.

This project is supported by Lotterywest Grants and the Department of Parks and Wildlife, Western Australia, the Department of Sport and Recreation and WAMBA.
