When: 
Wednesday, 23 July, 2008 - 19:15

The meeting times are 'ready to ride'. If you need time to prepare equipment then please arrive a few minutes earlier.

Ride Database Entry: 
Cascades
Meeting Point: 

Terrey Hills Tavern

Getting bored with the same old night ride, need something new, well try our new and improved night ride with added sniggle and two hills for the price of one.

This ride is not for those new to MTB'ing or the unfit as it has some technical aspects and a few hills that will max out your ticker.

• We will proceed from the Tavern to the trail entrance past Forest Way.
• We will then take the "Epithany" trail to St Ives Showground.
• Cross over Mona Vale Rd to the Quarry Trail.
• (New and improved) - at the bottom we will turn left and climb the Health Trail.

Night Ride - Manly Dam plus extra's

Ride Database Entry: 
Manly Dam

The 1st half of the Manly Dam loop then crossing over the Parkway and riding to Forestville. After this we following the pipeline until we rejoin the Manly Dam loop. 100% legal, but there is a little road riding involved.

A touch under 15k's but will take 2 hours at night and you will need good lights.

This is a technical ride and at night it will be more difficult, so it's not for the inexperienced.

Bring a beer for post ride hydration.

My (now becoming) regular ride on the fire trails of Hornsby Heights & Galston Gorge (Quarry Road fire trail).

***** Wednesday's Night ride was cancelled due to the weather so whose up for the same ride on Thursday night - please either confirm or remove your star so I know who is coming ******

And now for something completely different.

Insteasd of the usual trails I'm suggesting we head off in the opposite direction and ride the sniggle running parallel to Mona Vale road to St Ives Showground and then pop over to Cascades to run down Quarry climb Lower Cambourne to Acron Oval re-entering the bush down the road to come out at Mona Vale rd to ride the sniggle back to the Tavern to rehydrate.

Meeting Point: 

Hazelbrook train station

Starting at Hazelbrook train station get the 9:58 train up to Wentworth Falls. Ride down Andos and grin like maniacs. I've not done Hazelbrook before but Carlgroover has offered to be our guide for that bit. In the unlikely event we still have the legs then we could ride down The Oaks and get the train back to Hazelbrook train station. That would make it a very full day.

The plan is, well there is no plan. I have never been here before so this is more of an exploring ride. I ride XC so this is not a hard core down hilling adventure but always happy to have a look.

I will look at the ride database before Saturday so hopefully I will have some idea but if anyone signs up with local knowledge that would be good.

Also, while this is an exploring ride I do like to ride at a decent pace.

I intend on doing Duck Hole + Centre twice or Perimeter + Long + Duck Hole. The intention is to be at a steady pace with minimal stops.

I have never done these at night so I am not sure what we can cover in 2 hours.

Edit: Time change to 7:15pm.
