After completing his first day out on the Munda Bidi, Dave was back out just over a week later to tackle the next section from Brookton Highway to Jarrahdale, a 54km adventure.
Read about his journey below.
For today's ride I got dropped off at Brookton Highway, heading to Jarrahdale, a nice ascent to warm me up on a fresh morning. It's a steady ascent with a few flat sandy areas, just me and the roos.
Took me about 5 hours to do this part at a steady pace stopping for the occasional butt rest. The trail is mostly bush trails with 1 section an old logging track used to join Brookton highway to Albany highway.
Just before you get to Albany highway you get to the Glen Eagle rest stop and if your lucky you will see a massive wattle tree in full bloom but watch out for the bees. From here I crossed Albany highway and continued on to the next hut. There is a turn on the left of the trail to go to Jarrahdale be careful not to miss it as can confuse you.
When you leave the hut backtrack up hill and the turn will be on the right where you cross Jarrahdale Rd and go through a rally track, so check before you head off that there is no racing on that day as your on the gravel road for a bit.
My favourite part was an old logging area with the old train track. It was a closed in trail that is canopied with trees and I was able to ride at a good pace. Not long after getting through that area you come to the small country town of Jarrahdale which was the end of the day for me so I celebrated by heading to the the pub for a good old country lunch.
