Western Australia's 1,000km Munda Biddi Trail is set for completion early next year, when it will become the longest mountain bike trail "of its kind" in the world. Allan Birrell, executive officer of the Munda Biddi Trail Foundation, said there is about 100km of work left to complete on the Munda Biddi, but progress was on track for it to be ready to ride end-to-end by February. The trail starts in Mundaring in the Perth Hills and runs south to the picturesque seaside town of Albany, taking in the vineyards of the Fergus Valley, skirting the Stirling Ranges and travelling amidst the majestic trees in Walpole's Valley of the Giants.

Welcome to Cycle Traveller, a brand new online magazine for bicycle touring around Australia where you can find information and inspiration for planning your bike trip, whether it's your first, or 31st! It's hard to pinpoint exactly what inspires someone to strap a few bags to their bike and set off on a journey. For some it's the physical test of powering yourself from town to town, state to state or coast to coast. For others, it's the mental challenge of nailing that hill climb, fighting the headwind and going the distance, day after day. For others, it's the mental challenge of nailing that hill climb, fighting the headwind and going the distance, day after day.

Knowing your route increases chance of accidents: study

It appears cyclists who are very familiar with their on-road routes, ride road bikes and cycle faster than 20km an hour are more likely to be involved in an accident that lands them in hospital, a new study has found.

The Monash Alfred Cycle Crash Study interviewed 158 cyclist over 2011 who were attended to at the Alfred and Sandringham Hospital Emergency Departments in Melbourne following a crash.

Ever dreamt of racing alongside the best in the world? Well, now you can, right here in Australia. Well, sort of. The route is up and registrations are open for the 2013 Bupa Challenge Tour, giving you the chance to ride Stage 4 of the Santos Tour Down Under in South Australia on the same day as the professionals. OK, so you won't exactly be 'racing' against the ProTeams, the organisers like to describe it as a 'challenge'. But you will be riding on the same route, giving you the chance to hit the finish line ahead of some of the best in the world.
