Murray Wynne.jpgMurray WynneOccupation:

Project Manager

Why I become involved in MBTF:

I rode the MBT with my wife in November 2002 from Mundaring to Dwellingup and we enjoyed it so much that we joined the MBTF so as to contribute to this fantastic facility. I then took it a step further and did volunteer work, then join the MBTF Board. 

Current/Favourite Mountain Bike:

Giant VT1 dual suspension for fun riding and an Apollo Apex hard tail for the MBT.

Favourite place to ride:

I ride most of the time around the Kalamunda, Mundaring and Pickering Brook area including the MBT but my favourite would have to be the Turner Hill Track which is on the MBT north of Dwellingup.


Alan Lofts - Secretary

Alan Lofts Alan LoftsOccupation:

Auto Electrician

Why I become involved in MBTF: 

At the Mundaring Weir hotel, I found one of the MBTF flyers, and I could hardly restrain the excitement that I felt at finding something to help satisfy the sense of adventure combined with the enjoyment of riding a bike. Once I had found my feet with the MBTF, I felt that I needed to help others to also find the enjoyment that I was able to experience, both from the Board room and out on the Trail as a ride leader.

Current/Favourite Mountain Bike:

Giant Alias, hard tail, with hydraulic disc brakes.

Favourite place to ride:

The section of trail between Jarrahwood and Nannup would have to be my favorite on the MBT. Between Jarrahdale and Balmoral POW camp are sections that I enjoy riding as well as around the Swan river cycle paths both north and south side from Perth to Fremantle. 


Jim Sharp - DPaW Representative

Occupation: Deputy Director General - Department of Environment and Conservation


Chris Mawson - Community Representative


Associate Dean, School of Business, University of Notre Dame Australia

Why I become involved in MBTF:

Over the last few years I have started doing overnight XC style MTB rides, and I have ridden the Waterous route a few times, the Jarradale to Bidjar Ngoulin section, and the newer Manjimup - Dwellingup section. (Have a look at my blog on the ride.)  I was looking for an interest outside of work that complimented my MTB riding and business skills. The MBTF seemed an appropriate choice. Hopefully I can help develop the trail as a world-class mountain bike adventure trail.

Current/Favourite Mountain Bike:

I have only had one (having previously owned only hybrids), a Giant Anthem XO 2009 - should last me till I can't ride any more.

Favourite place to ride:

No real favourites, although riding in the south west WA forests is great.


Mike Wood - Community Representative


Proprietor - Peregrine Travel Centre.

Why I become involved in MBTF:

I wish to support and encourage trails tourism and active outdoor pursuits in both walking and cycling.

Current/Favourite Mountain Bike:

Giant Alias
