Kalamunda Shire joins the party and commits to MTB trails.

Posted by Ian Humphrey, Wednesday, 28th January 2015 @ 7:17pm

  • KMBC committee members recently had a great meeting with the Shire of Kalamunda to discuss several future trail and event proposals. The one thing we unanimously agreed on is the need for a trail suitable for the beautiful environment that we all enjoy and get to play in. We don’t want to throw the word “epic” about lightly, but we are excited that will be working with the Shire to deliver a trail which would loop from the Kalamunda township, to the Kalamunda trails (and Mt Gunjin), Pickering Brook and back to Kalamunda.

    This has the potential to become over 35km of top grade mountain bike trail with a bit of everything. It is likely to take in several of the existing trails within the area as well as some much needed upgrades and some new sections of sweet single track. The Shire will also be investigating a formal link trail between the Town and the Railway Heritage trail / Goat Farm.

    It’s early days but the Shire are very positive about the proposal, with the formal planning stage commencing in February 2015 and expected design/alignment stage to be completed by the end of August. There will be plenty of opportunities for you to get involved and give your feedback throughout the process, and we’ll keep our members informed as the work progresses. A big thankyou to those at the Shire for sourcing the funding of this planning and design work, and for the persistence in progressing this difficult project.

    Depending on its findings, we are optimistic that we could see work commencing on the ground later this year. This is one of the big projects that the recent Trail Fund raffle that raised over $28,000 could be used for, with great grant match funding opportunities being available. Therefore a big thankyou for all of those members that bought one of the 850+ raffle tickets that were sold.

The Kids Lead The Way!!

Posted by shane legend Williams., Sunday, 5th October 2014 @ 8:48pm

  • Great day (apart from the weather) for our Sunday social ride. We had 19 kids ride out with their parents in the kids group and 4 adults for the Adults group, for the Outdoors WA and IMBA Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day. I'm amazed by the strengths of our volunteers that stand up each month to run these events. Imagine trying to keep control of 19 eager kids as you try to explain where they are going. Thanks go out to Travis Linaker. Richard Orr. Richard Watson. Dale Cridge.

Final 2014 Trail Builders cup

Posted by Ian Humphrey, Wednesday, 24th September 2014 @ 9:00am

  • The last Trail builders cup of 2015 has been raced and won with several regular rivalries being put to the clock. The expected weather held off and those that weren’t scared by the forecast mostly stayed dry, with everyone retreating back to the Camel farm for drinks and snags as the rain started. The session was run over Scorpion, Lancaster and Feral Groove trails, with a bit of inside trail builders knowledge helping a few gain some valuable seconds with their race lines. It was a closely fought contest with only 7 seconds separating the top four, but Ian Humphrey  managed to take it out over Chris Pierce by just 2 seconds. Honourable mentions due to the Terry ”where was that A-line” Cain, “Stop line stack Steve” and Chad “well at least the frame crack hasn’t grown” Demidenko. Also special shout out to Rodrigeuz clan that didn’t quite escape the weather, but made the bbq.
     
    Results can be found at Trail Builders Cup

    Thanks to all of those that has help make this a success and participated. It is only a small way that we can say thankyou to all of those that have given up there time to help in some way towards promoting, protecting or developing the Kalamunda trails we all ride. A massive thankyou to Steve Janiec at WA Gravity Enduro for sponsoring the series by donating his time and custom made timing equipment. This truly is a WA organisation that gives back to MTB, and is a credit to the sportin WA. More details about them and their next race can be found at www.wagravityenduro.org
