The ground is ready and the time is right to build and revamp some of the much loved, used and abused Kalamunda trails. The Kalamunda Collective have hired dumpers and excavators to give a few trails a major once over to keep them in tip top shape. All we need is manpower! We need you!

DirtWorX will start on Saturday 9th August and go on until Friday 15th. Volunteer works will be running all day Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th with midday BBQ and a few beers to finish each day off. The plan is to carry out some much needed berm works to Goldilocks on the weekend. We need about 20 volunteers each day, and some extra wheelbarrows wouldn't go astray.

During the week, work will be going on the Gunjin trails, so if you have some time to help out, it be we'll received.

Come down and lend a hand for a much time as you can spare, from 8am at the top of Mt. Gunjin. Without your hard work the Kalamunda trails would be nowhere near to where they are now. Let us know if you can make it.

Full details and sign up on the Kalamunda Collective website.

Hope to see you at there!

Kalamunda Mountain Bike Collective

WAMBA would like to thank the Department of Parks and Wildlife for their continued support of mountain biking, and in particular the recent contributions to improvements in mountain bike trail maintenance. Parks and Wildlife has provided some funding  to clubs to work with the relevant Districts  in establishing improved maintenance regimes. The funding will be for trail counters, trail audits, and establishment of long term maintenance programs with reporting on the improvements between the club and district. The beneficiary clubs and groups include the Goat Farmers, Southern Hills Mountain Bikers, Margaret River Offroad Cycling Association, Kalamunda Mountain Bike Collective, Collie Mountain Bike Club and South West Mountain Bike Club.

To launch the new TrailsWA website, WAMBA are offering a free entry to the 2014 Cape to Cape mountain bike race.

The TrailsWA website is a fantastic resource providing heaps of information about all types of trails across WA including a searchable map, trail descriptions, downloadable KML (GPS) files, photos, reviews, useful links and other local attractions. WAMBA are fully supportive of TrailsWA and have transferred all of our trail information from our website to TrailsWA.

To enter the draw to win a Cape to Cape entry all you need to do is post an image or review of one of the 20 mountain bike trails on the TrailsWA website by 31st August 2014. If you are lucky enough to win and have already entered the Cape to Cape then you may transfer the registration to another person, or use it in 2015.

The list of mountain bike trails on the TrailsWA website can be found here.

Signing up to TrailsWA is very easy. You can create a new account or use your Facebook, Twitter or Google+ log in.

Good luck and we look forward to viewing your photos and reading your reviews!

180 competitors and 250 spectators flocked to Mt Gunjin, Kalamunda, for the Western Australian round of the Australian Gravity Enduro Series hosted by WA Gravity Enduro and fuelled by Chain Reaction Cycles.

Competitors from all over Australia flew to their most isolated capital city, looking to tame the loose pea gravel of ‘Lazarus,’ drop in on the hand-crafted ladders of ‘Luvin Shovels,’ pedal hard on the flats after ‘Goldilocks’ and the ‘3 bears,’ and link it all together with climbs up ‘Rocky Balboa’ and ‘Drago.’ With a licensed area, food servery pumping out 12hour slow cooked pulled pork rolls and paninis - hosted by Murphy’s Irish Pub, Mandurah, mechanics on-course, 5 enduro stages and hundreds of spectators lining the trails, the atmosphere was a buzz!

A fantastic initiative from mountain bike hire, tours and clinics company, Rock and Roll Mountain Biking, has seen them fill up a whole skip bin with rubbish that has been dumped around the Kalamunda Trails. In their spare time they picked up a variety of waste from the area showing that mountain bikers look after the bush we ride in.

This is a good time to remind riders to "leave no trace" and take out everything they brought in with them including punctured inner tubes. Take extra care to securely stash food wrappers and drinks bottles as even accidental litter is still litter. If you see items of rubbish that are small enough to carry please put them in your bag. Anything larger (such as household or building waste that has been dumped) report the location to the local Department of Parks and Wildlife office. If you don't know how to contact them, report it to your local mtb club who will contact them.
