Dirt Skills Margaret River is partnering with Survive First Aid to bring a nationally recognised mountain bike specific Remote Area First Aid course to Margaret River (WA) over 2 awesome weekends .
This course is delivered by MTBikers, for MTBikers!! It will have a dedicated focus on addressing the injuries and logistical considerations that almost every mountain biker comes across from time-to-time, including how to deal with major trauma and complicated extractions.
The majority of the course will be delivered in the field...which means plenty of play time on Margs’ sweet, sweet trails!
The course costs $550 and all participants will come away with nationally-recognised qualifications in CPR, Asthma, Anaphylaxis and Responding to Emergencies in Remote Areas.

Have You Got Some Great Shots of the Trail? Or would you like to participate in a photo shoot on the Trail? We need photos for our new updated maps.
The Munda Biddi Trail Foundation and the Parks and Wildlife Service at the new Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions are working together to update the Munda Biddi Trail maps series. The update will reduce the number of maps from nine to eight and include fresh new pictures.
If you have any good, high resolution pictures of the locations below and are happy for them to be included as part of the new-look maps, we’d love to see them! Similarly, if you are available over the next few months, a team of photographers will be hitting the Trail to take pictures at a number of places. Contact Carina via email to find out when the photographers will be in your area and to submit your photos.

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!
