Over the weekend 10 amazing volunteers joined the Foundation and the Department of Parks and Wildlife for a Trail Maintenance Training Workshop near Dwellingup.
Participants rode the old Waterous Trail to the Bidjar Ngoulin Hut which had previously suffered damage in the Yarloop bushfires. At the hut, the group cleared and re-established tent sites and surrounding paths.
Volunteers learnt about different aspects of hut maintenance and how to minimise bushfire risks. Extra training was also provided to our Sector Leaders.
The workshop was a great opportunity for both new and experienced volunteers to connect, share stories and meet other people with a common passion. Thank you to everyone for joining us, with a special mention to Vicki and Mike who travelled up from Albany to be a part of the day!

Trail counters will be placed along the Munda Biddi Trail between Mundaring and Albany. The infra-red counters will be used (in conjunction with a user survey) to estimate numbers of Trail users. The Foundation is looking for volunteers to regularly visit the counter sites, collect the data, reset the counters and email the data to us. Sites need to be visited once every month for one year.
For further information email or call us on (08) 6336 9699.

Perth man Declan von Dietze, 22, departed Albany on his mountain bike on Sunday 30 April, and reached the northern end of the trail in Mundaring on Thursday 4 May in a time of four days, six hours and 39 minutes.
Declan said he attempted the record because he wanted to inspire young people to take up mountain biking.
“The Munda Biddi is among the best and longest mountain bike trails in the world, and what better way to get people interested in this wonderful sport and our magnificent environment than attempting to ‘Bust the Biddi’ in record time,” he said.

In a first for the Munda Biddi Trail, elite international mountain bike racer, Declan von Dietze is attempting to be the fastest person to ride the entire 1000km end-to-end.
Declan departed Albany on Sunday 30 April from the Munda Biddi Trail’s southern terminus at the Albany Visitor Centre, with the aim of reaching the northern terminus in Mundaring Sculpture Park by Thursday 4 May – ‘busting the Biddi’ in just shy of a week.
For those of you who have completed an end-to-end, you know the challenge that Declan is undertaking. If you would like to support Declan and help raise the profile of the Munda Biddi Trail, we are calling on riders to assist the Munda Biddi Foundation by inviting you to join Declan in those difficult final 15kms from The Dell to Mundaring as a ‘last leg rider’.
Declan is being followed by a film crew the entire length of his journey and it is anticipated he will arrive at The Dell shortly after midday on Thursday 4 May, finishing at Mundaring at 1pm.
To register your interest in becoming a ‘last leg rider’ and for more information, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org,au or call us on 6336 9699.
To follow his attempt and see how long Declan will take to complete his end-to-end ride, keep an eye on the Munda Biddi Trail Foundation’s social media channels, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
If you see Declan on his journey, we invite you to take a picture and upload it to social media with the hashtags #BusttheBiddi and #MundaBiddiTrail.
If it has been a while since you have been out on the Trail, grab your bike, get out on the Munda Biddi and share your stories about how you ‘busted the Biddi’. We would love to hear from you.
