If you have experience in mountain biking in WA, a vision for the bigger picture, and the time to commit to this important project, please consider nominating for a volunteer role on the Perth Peel Mountain Bike Master Plan steering committee. 

All of our affiliated clubs and groups in the Perth Peel region have been asked to nominate individuals for a role. If you want to know more, see the Perth-Peel Master Plan page on the WAMBA website, or get in touch with your club.

Even if you are not selected, all clubs and groups and individuals will have the opportunity to have their input during the extensive consultation period at the commencement of the project so everyone will have the opportunity to provide valuable input.

There have been changes afoot at MTBA, the national governing body for mountain biking in Australia. Flow Mountain Bike recently interviewed the new CEO, Shane Coppin, to gain a clearer understanding of MTBA's new pragmatic approach to the sport in all areas and the future of IMBA-Aus.
