4 hours
Come Rain or Shine: 
I'll be there, no matter what the weather.
Ride Database Entry: 
Marramarra National Park
Meeting Point: 

Bloodwood Road, Fiddletown heads up to the National Park. There's a sharp right bend by Marramarra Ridge Trail, with Coba Point Fire Trail shortly after (the proceeding sharp left). There's parking by either trail which are less than 1km apart, but the area by Coba Point Fire Trail is the go.


Who's up for another 'out of town' ride? Similar in style to Great Northern Road or Menai, there is something for everyone on this ride. Fast single trail, fire break and don't forget all the technical fun-ness. Rocks, tree roots, sand and sniggle. It will be a great day. Let's hope the weather behaves this time!!

The ride is about 30 minutes north of Hornsby, so it shouldn't kill your entire day. Plus, with the length of ride, you are sure to get a decent workout, as part of your 24hr routine!

Looking forward to seeing you there... come on, throw your hat in the ring!! Smiling

pikey A day to learn and live! After we said good bye to the rides stage one guys, and after bagging them for being woozy girls, I lived to regret that comment, we headed off in search of some nice downhill fun which we did eventually find. After reaching about 80% into the...
Little-Ditty Riding in a furnace Just like the Blair Witch Project, what started out as a fun bike ride turned into a battle against the elements. Those elements tried their hardest to claim us, but we stood up to the heat with our courage and conviction, and finally made it to...

Were you there and have a story to tell?

I'm keen for a training ride for the Mont 24hr but don't want to hold you guys back. Are we thinking social or hard at it?

No ride with this many people is fast paced.

You will be fine.

Saturday is forecast for 35 degrees, 40 in the west. Is there a consensus to commence this ride 30 minutes earlier?

Sound off...

Buck's picture

I don't mind. But it's going to be hot either way by the time we finish. Bring your sunscreen!

Alysum's picture

Yes I don't think 30mins earlier will make much difference - bring lots of water too!

Hope the forecasted "chance of thunderstorms" won't too much in our area Eye-wink

Seeing that Rob pussied out of this ride, does anyone have a Motion Based track of the trails we rode a couple of years ago?

Alysum's picture

I found one in the last year ride

Are we planning to do the same route?


Buck's picture

Tien load the map into your GPS for Saturday!

shano's picture

It may be conducive to get the ride started early with Saturday looking to be a scorcher..

Marramarra...looks good...but 35-39 degrees tommorrow...

Can anyone give us some clues...e.g. if this is a very exposed trail (hot) or more shady (like Ourimbah?). (% estimate?)

You know this case ...not even (mad dogs and) Englishmen go out in the midday sun.... Eye-wink

Cheers, Hans Eye-wink
May all your lines be the right ones...

The ride meeting now commences at 7:30 a.m. Sorry for the late notice, but I think this will be best in the long run. If we can finish our ride before midday, so much the better.

Any chance of lift from Frenchs Forest (Skyline Shops)?

Gilbo's picture

What a day! A big thanks to Greg, Liam, Craig and Andy who helped me survive the killer bout of heat exhaustion that set in. You are all legends.
