Munda biddi trail, Albany to Perth West Australia

My husband and I are planning to cycle the Munda Biddi trail from Albany to Jarrahdale in October, 2015 and would like some feedback from people who have cycled this route in the past year. We are 60ish and have cycled thousands of k's in Europe and some in Quebec however are hearing conflicting info on this trail. We know it won't be like Europe but how good is the actual surface, we have also done the railtrail in central Otago in NZ, cheers.

Munda Biddi

We did bits last year and a bit this year but aren't fans of it.
I think it was promoted as a 1000km to join the world forum. We both came off a few times and had to push often. And that was after returning form Northern India.
Some parts are nice though as are the huts.
Maps are expensive and not up to date due to diversions.

These 2 joined the trail somewhere near Northcliffe and went to Albany recently

The Munda Biddi

Hi, I live in Bunbury and have done the northern sections a number of times. I have mixed thoughts on the trail. There are some great stretches and some pretty bad stretches. My main issue was damage due to motorbikes. The ball bearing nature of a lot of the "soils" here are pretty challenging once they are disturbed. So, you tend to encounter loose surfaces on the steeper uphills, downhills, and sharp corners (where the motorbikes like to rip through). It's generally beautiful, the huts are great, and it is peaceful. I like to use a bit of creativity and use parts of the munda biddi and then jump on some of the surrounding back country logging and rural roads. It is a fantastic part of the state and wonderful for cycling. good luck. Feel free to ask additional Q's.

Thanks Robert for the feedback, we have already decided not to go north of Jarrahdale due to the condition of the track but still researching other parts of the track from various sources, cheers Robyn
