MOUNTAIN BIKE RIDING
BunGeo is quickly becoming a hub for whirling MTB groups with kilometres of top quality cross-country and downhill trails suitable for beginner, intermediate and advanced riders. There are trails across the region, but the Collie River Valley is mad about MTB, and is quickly becoming a destination hot spot.
This is a good place to start your MTB adventure; the Bunbury area serves as a base for the South West Mountain Bike Club and its the perfect place to pick up all your equipment needs. Start at Melo Velo Bike Shop & Cafe with a great workshop, bike hire (when only the best will do), spin room and some of the best coffee in the region. Next head to MAD Cycles.
Collie River & Ferguson Valleys
BunGeo’s Mecca of MTB, where you’ll find more than 25 awesome trails to pump. Don’t have gear? Hire a bike from the Kiosk at the Dam in the Wellington National Park and tackle the nearby Mount Lennard Tracks or pick up a bike at CranknCycles in Collie where the guys know everything there is about bikes and the trails around Collie. After some door-to-door (campsite service), then contact the crew at TraaVerse who will deliver your bikes and other equipment to you.
A little further south in Lowden, MTB guru Cycletrek will hire you a bike to tackle their trails through beautiful Jarrah forest.
