Munda Biddi '18

In October 2018 a small team of wounded and damaged ex-service men will set out to cycle unsupported…

…from Ocean to Ocean

along the 1,070km ancient and wild Munda Biddi trail that runs from Mundaring, near Perth Western Australia to Albany on the South Coast, in under 14 days.  

The name ‘Munda Biddi’ means path through the forest in the Noongar Aboriginal language.

It is the longest track of its kind in the world!

The ride will begin just as Spring arrives in Perth, spreading south through three weather zones, and the team will encounter warmth and cold, wet and dry. The going will be easy and tough; hilly and flat; and will include sand, pea-gravel, and all things in-between.  Some routes may be flooded, in particular in the south where the weather can be very different, some may be blocked due to fire or forestry work. 

Accommodation will be in very basic shelters that sit at roughly 40km intervals along the track. The team will encounter spiders and snakes as they emerge from their winters and will need to be particularly careful about the tiger snake.

This is one of National Geographic’s top ten trail rides world wide, and it is a substantial challenge.

 

“Having lost my way a bit since becoming a civilian I am always looking for a new challenge. Munda Biddi ’18 will be a great opportunity to test my physical and mental limits, whilst being around ex-servicemen, and boost my spirits once again”
