Extreme fire danger 11-12 January.

Posted by Ian Humphrey, Friday, 10th January 2014 @ 2:34pm

  • This weekend the predicted fire danger rating for Saturday will be Severe and for Sunday it will be Extreme. Because of the risk of fire a number of our national parks will be closed over the weekend. This includes Lane Poole Reserve and John Forrest National Park. Also, the Goatfarm gate will be locked from this afternoon. The other mountain bike trails will not be closed but we strongly recommend to riders to not be out in the bush this weekend. If a fire occurs, it will move very quickly and be extremely difficult to control.

First Junior Social Ride for KMBC

Posted by a GroupSpaces user, Tuesday, 7th January 2014 @ 7:49am

  • Sunday 5th January saw our first Junior Social Ride take place out at the Kalamunda Camel Farm. We had a fantastic turn out with 11 enthusiastic mountain bikers turning up with their even more enthusiastic excited parents.

    After a fun loop of the beginner track near the farm to start with to give the kids a chance to see what they were in for and adjust to riding in the dirt we headed off down the start of the Kalamunda Circuit. The rocky section at the start was a little challenging with the kids realising that you give it a go and if that doesn't work you can jump off and run your bike through challenging sections whilst still being able to enjoy the flowing down section that follows. After this we crossed the road and did some more beginner track before jumping onto the tail end of Horny Devil down to the pump track.

    At the pump track the kids had a ball testing out their skills. A couple of the juniors attempted the log ride behind the pump track with a lot of success, unlike some of the parents who blamed age & balance on not making it all the way along!

    Watching a group of 11 young riders smiling having fun was impressive and exciting. I think us parents watching them got just as much of a kick seeing them enjoy themselves as a group and watching their confidence increase as they rode together.

    We headed back to the Camel Farm along the green track to a BBQ & fruit platters that KMBC provided and Shane had spent the morning preparing. The kids sat around eating mostly sausages and very little fruit chatting about their ride and wanting to head out on the trails again!

    A fantastic start for our new Junior members (and yes you can sign your kids up as members of our club...they love being part of it and will receive a members stem cap & membership card).

    I can't wait till our next Junior Social ride and to be able to watch these kids develop their skills and passion. So if you have a junior rider bring them along and join in the fun. I promise your kids will thank you for it and you may end up with a new ride buddy!

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!!

  • 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…
