Rain? Manly/ northern beaches

Thinking of hitting up the dam for a ride. Can anyone tell me how much rain has fallen that way?

Is it too wet to ride it?

The area took a big drenching last night so it's most probably pretty saturated.

Despite not having rained much (at all?) during the last two weeks, sections of the trail were still surprisingly wet yesterday. So I'd say don't ride. It's still raining now as I type. Sad

If you are really desperate to get a ride in today, I'd suggest the Duck Holes and Centre Track loop at Terrey Hills.

As they run along the ridgeline for most of the length, they drain pretty well. Being fire road - there's not a lot of damage you can do that can even remotely compare to what a single AWD car or fire truck can do anyway.

Look 'em up on the trails database on this site.

Have fun cleaning your bike afterwards Smiling
