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.

Lotterywest supported

Great news for WAMBA and all its affiliated clubs . . . .

After reviewing their grant application processes, Lotterywest are ending the annual grant round application approach for Trails grants, and instead invite applications for these grants at any time. Previously these grants were managed via a “grant round”, with annual opening and closing dates for submission.

As of 31 March 2015, applications for Trails grants can be submitted to Lotterywest at any time of the year.

The 2015 WA Mountain Bike Events Calendar was released in mid-December in PDF format. These dates are now available in the Event Calendar of the WAMBA website. Included in the calendar entries is information about the event, location and links to the relevant websites and Facebook pages.

Along with the traditional categories of Cross Country, Marathon, Gravity Enduro and Down Hill, check out the new event categories of MTB Orienteering and Adventure - how about testing your mountain biking skills doing something a bit different?

Please note – these dates are subject to change.

Common Ground Trails are conducting a survey to gauge interest and to identify potential demand for an urban mountain bike development at Manning Park. If you live in the City of Cockburn or would like to see more urban mountain bike trails, please take a few minutes to fill out the survey below.

Survey closes on 13th February.

Please be careful when cycling during the hot summer months.

Bushfires occur every year in Western Australia. Safe mountain biking means planning for bushfire emergencies before leaving home.

Avoid riding in the bush on days of severe, extreme or catastrophic fire danger or if there is smoke or fire in the area. You can check the Fire Danger Ratings on the Department of Fire & Emergency Services (DFES) website:
