Coronovirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
In line with Western Australian government regulations of 19 May 2020 the limit on CTAWA day rides is lifted to 20 riders per group (larger attendances will be split into groups of 20 and groups separated by 50 metres to approximate the recommendations for multi-site fixed venues). Tours and Social Evenings are still suspended pending further relaxation of Covid-19 regulations. Read Stu’s full letter here.

Monday November 26, 2018 @ 8:00 am - Friday December 7, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
Would you like to ride the Southern end of the Munda Biddi?
A ride is being planned on our world class mountain bike track from Manjimup to Albany.
Nights in huts: 4
Nights in towns: 7 (Manjimup, Pemberton, Northcliffe, Walpole (2), Denmark, Albany).
Max number of riders: 12
Approximate Cost: $430 (inc bus transport, bike transport and hotel accommodation) or $250 (inc bus transport, bike transport and campsite fees). Up to 12 bikes can be transported to Manjimup while 4 cyclists can travel with the transporter vehicle for a fee. The same arrangement will occur from Albany after the event.
Bus costs are based on TransWA buses at the full rate while seniors can benefit from a half price rate.
Of course you may make your own arrangements for transport and accommodation but if we share accommodation, so we do the savings.
Some of the things you’ll need:
- A good mountain bike with panniers to carry all your gear in.
- Clothes, food, sleeping bag & mat, cooking and eating utensils inc gas cooker.
- Bike spares including tire and tubes, spokes, tools etc.
- Mountain bike experience and enthusiasm.
Almost all of this part of the track is rated Easy with a few sections rated Intermediate and a short stage into Denmark as Difficult.
