Here are links to some of the most frequently asked Munda Biddi related questions. If you have an unanswered question about the Trail, or would like to see a question added to this page, please send the Foundation an email.
There is plenty of information available about the Munda Biddi.
We also recommend joining the Munda Biddi Trail Facebook group page, this is for those who have ridden, or are planning to ride the Trail. It's a very active group with photos, articles and questions being posted every day. It is a great source of information and can be used to ask questions and find riding partners.
Commercial posts are removed from the above group, but there's a new Munda Biddi Business Directory page on Facebook where the trail-related business community can post about their offerings for Munda Biddi cyclists, and riders can ask questions and post reviews
Another great resource is Follow My Ride. This website provides fantastic information such as a comprehensive review of each section and the history of the trail towns that you will travel through. Bill has been riding the Trail since its inception and is a wealth of knowledge.
Just about any mountain bike will do. Other bicycles such as hybrids can also be used if they are fitted with wide (knobbly) off-road tyres, widths of around 2.1 inches are suitable. Front suspension and disc brakes are recommended and if you plan to carry gear with you on your bike it is best not to use a dual suspension (i.e. rear suspension) bike. Full suspension bikes are not absolutely necessary, but help when you ride over bumps; suspension seat-posts are also useful and give a more comfortable long ride. Unless you intend to do some racing or strenuous riding, clip-on bike shoes are optional.
Dedicated racing, touring and recumbent bikes are not suited to the Trail. Also, extension bikes and trailers for children are only suited to the flattest portions of the Trail. Contact the Foundation or visit the Trip Planning page if you would like some guidance on selecting suitable sections to ride.
