Looking for a challenge and want to contribute something to mountain biking in Western Australia?

The volunteer role of Secretary on the WAMBA Committee is currently vacant, and WE WANT YOU! 


The West Australian Mountain Bike Association (WAMBA) is the state representative body for the WA mountain bike community. A volunteer organisation, the Association works collaboratively with key stakeholders to identify, develop and sustain mountain bike experiences in Western Australia. It also acts as a resource for clubs looking for help on trail advocacy and grants, and co-ordinates the racing calendar.

WAMBA has evolved from a trail building and advocacy group with a heavy focus on the Kalamunda Mountain Bike Network, to a State Sporting Association representing the interests of all mountain bikers in WA. The 3-year strategy for 2015-2017 is well underway, and is supported by key partnerships with WestCycle, the Department of Sport and Recreation, and the Department of Parks and Wildlife. WAMBA is affiliated to its national body, Mountain Bike Australia (MTBA), and there are currently 14 WA mountain bike clubs affiliated to WAMBA.
