Making the most of the Munda Biddi
A community celebration in honour of the opening of the Denmark to Albany section of the Munda Biddi Trail was held on 20 May at the Denmark Visitor Centre.
25 June 2012
The community celebration followed an official opening held by the Department of Environment and Conservation. More information on the official proceedings can be found by clicking here.
Volunteer guides led groups of riders of all experience levels out on the new section of the trail while the new Map 9 was available for sale for those who wanted to try the trail on their own. It is estimated that around 150 riders ‘hit the trail’ that afternoon.
This latest stretch of trail, which spans 75km and includes some of the spectacular scenery for which the Great Southern is renowned, passes through Youngs Sidings, Torbay and Elleker before finally reaching the southern trailhead at Albany.
Munda Biddi Trail Foundation Executive Officer Crystal Reed said, “This event is a great way for everyone and anyone to come out and be amongst the first to try the new section of the Munda Biddi Trail out from Denmark. Those who don’t have much experience in off-road cycling have the comfort of riding with our experienced ride guides and learning a few tips along the way. For the more advanced riders, this event offers the opportunity to get out there and explore with a group of likeminded cyclists.”
Entertainment was provided by musical trio De Nada and free bike hire was on hand thanks to Out of Sight Tours and the Great Southern Development Commission that sponsored the event.
