Anybody figured out how to ride the newly fixed up bits of the Dam down the back of Allambie? Roll it or jump it.

tried both, but the gaps are a bit awkward. Feels like they're not quite finished yet?

of both, did a few laps today and there is one where there are three bumps quite tight together, those I rolled. With better skills maybe all can be cleared in one jump but not me.

Lots faster through there now. And much safer and more predictable, there were some real wheel swallowing potholes before. Need to keep a eye out for trail runners.

I've kept my technique the same. Straight and fast and if I get airborne I get airborne.

Yeah I was looking at those three thinking they could be done as one. Will give it a go and report back from A+E later.

Is this bit of the track shared with pedestrians? I seem to be meeting a lot of pedestrians walking up the downhill track

Big Nige - Let me know when you are going for it and I'll make sure I have my phone handy - one for the vid and the other for the emergency services.

Why not send a thankyou note to Chris at NB Council to show we appreciate the work - you never know they might have the whole track done by 2025.

... on the best way to get to an access point to The Dam Trail if coming from Dee Why on a bike?

Criteria - no stupid hills, no Pittwater Rd or crazy traffic streets???

Hey - this is how I get to the dam from Dee Why.

Mt Narra is also an easy ride...

... will give that a try. Have already found my way to Narrabeen Lake and Mt Narra, although I think I need something a little more XC oriented than Mt Narra.
