Distance (approx): 37 km, 630 mtrs climbing, 11% grade max (short pinch), 2.9% avg grade, GF to Mt Helena Tavern return, ONLY 3 km of Heritage Rail Trail used. (For comparison the Dwelli 40 Google Earth data indicated approx 40.5km, 675 mtr, 14% max, 2.9%avg.)

Ride Database Entry: 
Kalamunda Mountain Bike Trails
Meeting Point: 

There are 4 car parks in the trail network:

Calamunnda Camel Farm
A safe place to leave your car and the largest car park in the are. The mountain bike friendly cafe also does camel rides. The food here is great and the scones and camel toe biscuits are highly recommended. They also carry a few bike spares should you forget/break anything.

Farrell Grove
Large DPaW managed car park off of Mundaring Weir Rd. There are lots of picnic tables and some toilets here. Great place to park if you want to ride the trails around Scorpion or Gunjin, especially if the Dell is full.

Black Stump car park
A good place to park at the western end of the trails network, next to the excellent pump track. There is a trailhead map and noticeboard. Cross Mundaring Weir Rd to the north side and pick up the trail from here. After 50m you will have a choice of the longer, harder Blue rated "Slippery When Dry" trail or the easier Green rated trail.

The Dell
One of the busiest and smaller car parks. It has great trail access, toilets and several picnic areas in beautiful bush surroundings.

Yep, more CX. Its the last time you can get rad in 2014, as the CX circus visits the northern suburbs for the first time.

All the usual rules apply, cowbells and vuvuzelas are totally encouraged, and it'll be a fun atmosphere.

Online Entries are open at https://www.registernow.com.au/mtba/ERegister.as... and you can also enter on the day for an extra $5.

If you have a CA license, day entry doesn't carry an extra charge, since I cant get an integrated system for love or money.
