Written by Travis Deane, this book is designed so you can get straight off the plane and have everything you need to discover over 55 great riding spots across Western Australia. It covers an area from Esperance in the south to Kununurra in the far north – a distance of 3,500km by road – and Travis has ridden almost every trail in the book.

The 256 page publication includes maps, directions, trail descriptions and a whole lot of local knowledge. There’s even a whole chapter on selecting the best tyres to match your riding style, highlighting the proven performers in WA notoriously slippery pea gravel.

It caters to all riding styles too; from cross-country to downhill and long distance rail trails.

The WA MTB Trailguide is available through bike shops (Zebra Sales is handling bike shop distribution) and it can be purchased online at with free shipping anywhere in Australia.
