Munda Biddi '18

In October 2018 a small team of wounded and damaged ex-service men & woman 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.  

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 began just as Spring arrived in Perth, spreading south through three weather zones, and the team encountered warmth and cold, wet and dry. The terrain was easy and tough; hilly and flat; and included sand, pea-gravel, and all things in-between.  Some routes were flooded, in particular in the south, due to heavy rain-fall, and some where blocked due to fire and forestry work. 

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

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

Team MB’18 successfully completed their epic challenge in under 14 days, proving that despite injury, anything is possible! 

“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”
