Morning gents,
keen for a ride tomorrow morning, but after all this rain, not sure which tracks are not too wet. I have ridden the Perimeter track a couple of times after its rained and found it lots of fun, although a few puddles, but hey, isnt getting dirty some of the fun? Manly dam I see is closed, how about Bairne or can someone recommend other trails? I'm relatively new to MTB so something around intermediate level, thanks!

doesn't seem to mind the wet. If you want an hours drive out there. Given all the rain the last few weeks you could well be breaking the spider webs too.

Yeah but if its wet I think GNR is bike destroying territory

Lol I think you learned that first hand, didn't you? Was a pretty expensive training ride for a few blokes from here about this time last year Eye-wink

I wasn't on that infamous ride but yeah, that one was quite expensive for some I believe.

Sounds interesting. I've done a few hikes up the GNR, but never rode it. Will do one day. Something a bit closer to the northern beaches would be preferable for tomorrow, any thoughts on Bairne?

I've don't GNR several times after heavy rain and it hasn't been too bad; of all the tracks I've been on, GNR seems to weather the best. That being said, after long, persistent rain, it was pretty wet the last time I wen't, and if you don't want to damage your bike, probably you should hike a couple of sections, but mostly should be rideable.

That being said, I was going to do GNR this weekend, but am not going off road at all due to the wetness (for the second weekend in a row Sad )
