Your guides will accompany you each day as you ride between 10 and 55 km. There is no such thing as an easy day on a bike! However, with a moderate level of fitness, they are all enjoyable. There are some hills, some gravelly sections and some narrow trails all of which can be challenging. We recommend getting some leg fitness to prepare for your ride. More on that later.
Each day we will resume the ride from where we finished the previous day, and will complete the whole southern section of the Munda Biddi trail. Please note that on many days there are options to ride half a day; and you are always welcome to take a day off from riding. We will try to help you find suitable alternative activities if you desire. The itinerary plan may alter depending on local conditions and weather.
Drive Perth to Albany + ride Albany to Torbay
Picking up in Perth at 8:00am, we will head south towards Albany. With morning tea and lunch on the way, we will arrive in the coastal town early afternoon and we will get straight into it! From the Visitor’s centre in Albany to Torbay is mostly easy going, with the odd hill. A perfect start to this epic adventure. After the ride, we will check into our motel for a one (1) night stay and have a meal at a local restaurant. With the travel, it will feel like a big day, so don’t make any plans for the evening!
Torbay to Denmark
We will get going after breakfast and head out in the vehicle with bikes in the trailer back out to Torbay. All of today’s ride to Denmark is classed as easy in terms of the riding surface, but there are a few decent hills. There are several access points for our vehicle to pick you up along the way should you wish to have a shorter day. We will finish the days ride at our accommodation in Denmark where we will be staying for the next three(3) nights.
Denmark to Scottsdale Rd
From Denmark, it is a particularly scenic and enjoyable route along the WOW trail past Light’s beach then out to Green’s Pool, one of Australia’s most beautiful beaches. After a delicious morning tea, there is a long uphill section heading out towards Mt Shadforth, followed by a long down hill, to Scotsdale road. The riding is partly along the stunning coastline then up through farmland today. At the end of the ride, the bus will be waiting to take us back to Denmark.
Scottsdale Rd to Nornalup Rd
A great day today! We will begin by weaving our way through some more farmland and passing one of the beautifully built campsites (don’t worry we are not sleeping there!). After morning tea, we start to head back into the tall trees of the National Parks. There are a few short challenging sections today which will test us, but it is all achievable. Again, those seeking an easier option, can shorten the day if they wish. The bus will be waiting for us at Nornalup Rd, to take us back for our last night in Denmark.
Middle Rd/Trent Rd to Gully Rd
We are changing accommodation today, so we will check-out of our accommodation in Denmark before we head out. Today we pick the track up at Middle Rd to avoid roughly 25km of difficult riding through sand and loose gravel. Most of today’s ride is in National park, through Tingle forest and following the river. We will see a mix of Karri forest as well as Tingle trees as we get closer to Walpole. There are some long uphills and fun downhill sections today, with a mix of easy and intermediate terrain. Accommodation tonight is in the lovely South West town of Walpole.
Gully Rd to Walpole + Return to Perth
Our last day! A short ride this morning with a few challenges, so it is no easy push off into the sunset. We finish in the town of Walpole. We’ll get views of the Nornalup inlet at Coalmine Beach before arriving in the town. There will be time for a quick shower and morning tea before we head back to Perth, with our tired legs and our sore cheeks – that’s from smiling too much!
