“I have always dreamed of riding the Munda Biddi Trail end to end but have never become motivated enough to get out there and 'Just Do It'. Now I have a reason and I am on a mission.”
Margaret ‘s youngest granddaughter has Childhood Interstitial Lung Disease and she is riding the Trail to raise awareness of The Lung foundation and the Munda Biddi Trail.
She set off from Mundaring last Saturday and hopes to reach Albany on Thursday the 5th of October.
You can follow Margaret on her journey. If you would like to join Margaret on part of her ride contact the Munda Biddi Foundation on 6336 9699 or at email@example.com. To donate please visit everydayhero.

The Munda Biddi Trail attracts all sorts of riders and Nanny Margaret has set herself the challenge of riding the whole of the Munda Biddi Trail to raise funds for and increase the awareness of the rare lung disease ChILD.
The ride along the Munda Biddi Trail is inspired by Margaret’s three-year-old granddaughter Charli, who lives with Childhood Interstitial Diffuse Lung Disease. This rare disease makes it hard for Charli's lungs to absorb oxygen. She is on oxygen therapy most of the day and night, and has low reserves when viral illness hits. It has impacted her growth significantly, and meant that basic activities are more complex and physically demanding. However, she still shines brightly through it all.
Show your support for Margaret as she sets out on the 1000+km mountain bike ride from Mundaring to Albany this weekend.
