CALL FOR RIDERS FOR 2014 MUNDA BIDDI EPIC CHALLENGE

Munda Biddi Epic 2014 Media Release
 
Do you have what it takes to complete the 1000km Munda Biddi Epic?
 
The Munda Biddi Trail Foundation is calling for registrations from riders to take part in the Munda Biddi Epic 1000 cycling event in April 2014, a fully supported ride leaving from Albany and finishing in Mundaring.
 
The iconic trail is the longest, most continuous off-road cycling track in the world, built through undeveloped natural corridor of forests, bushland, gentle terrain and scenic river valleys, showcasing towering eucalypt trees and unique plants and wildlife.
 
Twenty-six cyclists from across Australia took up the challenge of a life time earlier this year, completing their adventure in three weeks.
Munda Biddi Trail Foundation Chairman Ron Colman, who led the inaugural ride, said the Munda Biddi Epic 1000 was the ultimate off-road cycling challenge.
 
"It is certainly a test of your skills and endurance with many challenges along the way and it rates as one of the biggest achievements of my life," Mr Colman said. "Not only is it one of the must-do cycling adventures in the world, but you get to take in unique wildlife and spectacular scenery along the way."
 
Cyclists on the Epic will become official "Munda Biddi Trail Blazers", awarded to all riders who complete the trail after registering with the Foundation.
 
Mr Colman said the Munda Biddi Trail passed through local towns which would bring significant tourism benefits to Western Australia's South West region.
 
"Businesses in towns near the trail have become 'cycle friendly' with facilities for cyclists including accommodation, bike services, food and restaurants and visitor advice," he said. "These businesses are well placed to service the needs of the annual Epic riders and guided tours organised by the Foundation, as well as people just trying out different sections of the trail at their leisure. It has something for everyone with sections of the trail to suit anyone's ability and pace."
