Your guides will accompany you each day as you ride between 18 and 49 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. For those wanting to, there are plenty of opt out points 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 Scotsdale Rd
From Denmark it is easy going and a particularly scenic route out to Green’s Pool, one of Australia’s most beautiful beaches. There is then a long a long up hill section heading out towards Mt Shadforth, followed by a long down hill, to Scotsdale road. The riding is mostly through farmland today. Again, those seeking an easier option, can shorten the day if they wish. At the end of the ride, the bus will be waiting to take us back to Denmark.
Scotsdale Rd to Nornalup Rd
A great day today! Most of the day will be though the towering Karri forest. We will pass one of the campsites (don’t worry we are not sleeping there!) which are beautifully built. There are a few short challenging sections today which will test us, but 42/46km are classed as easy. The bus will be waiting for us at Nornalup Rd, to take us back for our last night in Denmark.
Nornalup Rd to Sappers Bridge Rd
We are changing accommodation today, so we will pack up our accommodation in Denmark before we head out. Most of today’s ride is back in the National park. We will see a mix of Karri forest as well as Tingle trees as we get closer to Walpole. There are some long ups and down today, with a mix of easy and intermediate terrain. Accommodation tonight is in Walpole.
Sapper’s Bridge to Walpole + Rtn to Perth
Our last day! 30% of todays ride is on intermediate terrain, so it is no easy push off into the sunset. We can still take our time however to cover the 18km, much of which will take us very close to the picturesque Frankland river. We then 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 shower and lunch before we head back to Perth, with our tired legs and our sore cheeks (that’s from smiling too much! 🙂
