Who can enter the events?

These events are for absolutely everybody.  There is a minimum age for the main race but we also offer races for the under 13s.  If you are unsure if you are fit enough to do the event by yourself grab some friends and do the 4 hour and 6 hour events in a team of up to 3 people.

How do the 4 and 6 hour events work?

The events are held around a lap course with the lap being between 5 and 10 kilometres long.  Teams can choose to alternate laps between their riders or do multiple laps each before swapping riders.  Riders from the same team do not ride at the same time.

What equipment do I need?

The only requirements are a functional mountain bike with two working brakes and a helmet that meets Australian Standards.  The helmet must be properly fastened at all times while on the bike.    No other safety equipment is required but gloves are recommended.

If I want to learn more about mountain biking where can I go?

The best place to start in WA is probably the Kalamunda Mountain Bike Collective for social rides or Perth Mountain Bike Club for races.  With occasional group rides and skills course the clubs website offers plenty of information.

In the lead up to the 2018 Kalamunda 50 we will be having a skills training day to help riders prepare for the event.  This event will be held on the 30th June.  This day will be open to a limited number of 10 riders and will offer tips on bike setup including suspension setup and basic skills to prepare riders for the event. It will cost $50 per rider and will run for 3 hours.   To secure you place on this ride email john@wembleycycles.com
