West Australian Mountain Bike Association (WAMBA) is the state representative body for the West Australian mountain bike community.

A volunteer organisation, WAMBA works collaboratively with key stakeholders to identify, develop and sustain mountain bike experiences in Western Australia.

And also acts as a resource for clubs looking for help on trail advocacy and grants, and co-ordinates the racing calendar.

575kms of purpose built mountain bike trails close to urban centres

  • A huge gap between supply and demand of MTB trails close to urban centres
  • Identifies 575kms of purpose built MTB trails across 24 sites
  • Creation of trail towns
  • Development to generate additional $44 million spend annually in WA and create jobs

On 5th July WestCycle, along with the Minister for the Environment the Hon. Stephen Dawson; and the Minister for Sport and Recreation, the Hon. Mick Murray, officially launched the Perth and Peel Mountain Bike Master Plan. WestCycle developed the plan in consultation with WAMBA, State Government, Local Government, Perth Mountain Bike Club, Peel District Mountain Bike Club, Kalamunda Mountain Bike Collective and the mountain bike community.

There is currently a huge gap in the balance between the supply and demand of mountain bike trails close to urban centres. The Perth and Peel Master Plan identifies 575kms of purpose built mountain bike trails across 24 sites, which stakeholders are hopeful will be the catalyst to investment.

Western Australia is well placed to become an international ‘must visit’ mountain bike destination. Plans are underway to create ‘trail towns’ across the State, which will lead to the development of 425kms of mountain bike trails.

The result of this development will generate an additional $44 million spend in Western Australia on an annual basis, create 675 jobs during construction and 222 jobs ongoing.

The plan is again testament to the coordinated approach to the development of mountain biking in Western Australia, and the enormous amount of work put in by the consultant, Common Ground Trails.

The Mountain Bike State Strategy launched in early 2015 identified the requirement for regional based master planning. The Perth & Peel Master Plan is the second of such plans to be released, with the South West Master Plan officially launched in November 2015.
