Junior Social Rides

Posted by Ian Humphrey, Friday, 3rd January 2014 @ 12:10pm

  • We always love it when someone stands UP and takes on a roll in our collective.

    May I introduce you to Junior Social Rider's Coordinator who will be running our first Sunday Junior Social ride from the Camel Farm this Sunday at 8 am.

    Penny Holmberg……..
    I am a mother of 4 girls...19, 11, 3 & 1. My biggest passion apart from my family is mountain biking. I started racing in 2005 and discovered I could ride my bike for very long periods without stopping! I started racing numerous endurance events ranging from 6hrs to 24hrs. 2yrs of racing events around Brisbane & Northern NSW with some great results led me into 2006 & 2007 where I raced the Australian Solo 24hr Mountain Bike Championships at Mt Stromlo (ACT) placing 3rd both years and qualified for the world solos 3years in a row. I have only recently moved to Perth from the east coast and started mountain biking again after my last 2 little babies. The amazing mountain biking community here has really impressed me and I am excited to be part of it! My 11yr old has just started riding and made me think how great it would be to have specific group rides for the younger/beginner riders. I look forward to helping & encouraging the kids to build confidence, skill & most importantly have fun on the trails as part of a supportive motivated group of junior mountain bikers!

Cheers to Kal Cycles.

Last chance to win in free $1000 bike shop spending spree

Posted by Ian Humphrey, Monday, 30th December 2013 @ 10:28am

  • If you have ever ridden the trails in Kalamunda please help us by joining up at www.kalamundacollective.com.au Please forward on or remind your riding buddies (or even join up your partner). The more members we have the easier it is to gain funding. Unfortunately being a member of the facebook group doesn’t count for most funding options (lotterywest etc) as it is not an organisation.

     It’s free to join and only takes 2 mins. Remember the $1000 worth of bike shop spending spree ends midnight tomorrow.

     Thanks again to Kalamunda Cycles, Freewheel Bike store and Carine Cycles.  

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to ALL!!

Posted by Shane Williams., Tuesday, 24th December 2013 @ 7:14am

  • The committee of Kalamunda Mountain Bike Collective wishes our members and family a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.  We couldn't ask for a better start to the Collective with over 295 members joining in three months. Next year is going to be exciting with lots of plans in motion to make our trail network even better. We have ordered a Christmas present for our members to thank you all for your support. More news on this to come!!!

Meeting with Trail Royalty

Posted by Ian Humphrey, Thursday, 19th December 2013 @ 8:51am

  • Reps from the Kalamunda collective had the pleasure of spending a few hours last night of picking the brains of Welsh trail guru Dafydd Davis. Dafydd received an MBE in 2004 from the Queen, mainly for his trail advocacy work within the UK forestry industry.  Dafydd was innovative in using volunteers, youth organisations and the armed forces to provide the labour needed to build sustainable trails, his approach to the Welsh Government successfully gained funding to develop extensive trail networks in five Welsh forests. The trails were subsequently announced by  IMBA  to be one of the world's top mountain biking destination. 

    The evening was well attended from a wide cross section of the mountain bike community, including Dept of Parks and Wildlife, the Munda Biddi, WAMBA and Peel MTB club. The future seems bright guys and gals…

Kalamunda Collective Jerseys are on there way.

Posted by Ian Humphrey, Monday, 16th December 2013 @ 5:08pm

  • Kalamunda collective jerseys are on there way! If you pre-ordered they should be hitting your mail box soon, so keep an eye out.

    Gary at NZO also did a few spare so if you get in quick you might be able to still pick one up. The details and links will be put up shortly at www.kalamundacollective,com.au under the clothing tab.

    Don’t forget that the Kalamunda Collective T- shirts are also available at Freewheel bike store in Cannington.

Munda Biddi Recon

Posted by Ian Humphrey, Sunday, 15th December 2013 @ 9:37pm

  • Representatives from the Kalamunda collective met with Neil Brodie thid morning, who is the Munda Biddi section leader for the existing parts of this trail in and around the current Kalamunda trail network. The discussion revolved mainly around possible improvements and future realignments. 

    It was great to get out there and see/hear the issues first hand. There is heaps of potential out there and I think this could be the start of a beautiful relationship.

Trail sponsor, Cambridge St Associates.

Posted by Ian Humphrey, Wednesday, 11th December 2013 @ 1:27pm

  • The Kalamunda Mountain Bike Collective are very pleased to welcome accountants “Cambridge St Associates” as the first Adopt a Trail sponsor. They have adopted the “Brand new Second-hand” and “ Drago” trails. Here’s a bit about who they are and why they became trail sponsors from Accountant Fraser Glendining:

    Why you wanted to sponsor a trail: To help give back to the trails I ride every weekend – I haven’t been out on a shovel as yet at a build day, but I help out with the WAMBA and several Cycle store accounts, and if I can get work to sponsor a trail, I can at least feel like I’ve done something to help get some more trails to ride.  

    Why that particular trail: Hopefully a few people might see the sign whilst they’re having a bit of a rest at the end of the new Gunjin trails, and drop me a line – if we can pick some clients up then hopefully we will be able to sponsor this trail (and potentially some more) on a long-term basis.

    How often do you (or your staff) get up onto the trails: Every weekend if possible, twice a weekend if I can swing it! Owning two mountain bikes is a good excuse to ride each one every weekend. One other guy in the office rides MTB, but only gets up there very irregularly.  

    Who has the best bike (and what is it) in the office/workplace: Me by a country mile – I’ve got a Stumpjumper Comp Carbon ‘29er dualie for a bit of fun, and a Yeti Big Top ‘29er single-speed for something different (and punishing).  

    Any rivalries or tales of victory/deceit: Beating Mitch from Wembley Cycles at the 50/50 this year - that gutted look in his eyes when he found me waiting for him at the finish line. Theres always next year Mitch, better start training now mate. Leave the arm warmers at home this time.  

    Which trails/locations do you dream about riding whilst at work: Planning next weekends ride up at Kalamunda, or wishing I was heading down to Marg River to ride the Pines.

    Please support the businesses that help us maintain the trails we all ride. Cambridge St Associates are experts in taxation, accounting, superannuation, auditing and business advice. You can contact them at 9285 8156 or fraser@csta.com.au

Support Your Local Bike Store!!!!!!

Posted by Shane Williams., Sunday, 8th December 2013 @ 7:26pm

  • Kalamunda Cycles, Freewheel Bicycle store and Carine Cycles have thrown their support behind KMBC. Thanks to their support, Kalamunda Mountain Bike Collective has gone from 160 member to 250 within less than two weeks. These bike shops have put up their own money to supply a combined $1000 worth of gift vouchers for 3 lucky KMBC members. These shops aren't run by large bicycle manufacturers, they are people just like you and me. Please support these local shops who support us.

Trail Sponsorship opportunities.

Posted by Ian Humphrey, Friday, 6th December 2013 @ 12:41pm

  • The Kalamunda Mountain Bike Collective are offering the opportunity for businesses and organisations to have their name and brand associated with some of the most popular and scenic mountain biking trails in Western Australia. Revenues raised from this project will ensure the continued professional maintenance of these trails for all cycling enthusiasts.

     The Adopt a Trail sponsorship scheme is a means to achieve both increased community ownership and professional trail maintenance to ensure the trails are maintained to cycling’s highest standards. It should be noted that this is not the full maintenance cost and it will be supplemented by additional fundraising and volunteer work to ensure that these trails remain in top condition.

    For more information about adopting a trail or to register your interest please contact us at kalamundacollective@gmail.com 
    A list of the current trails available for sponsorship is available at http://www.kalamundacollective.com.au/pages/our-sponsors
