    Where will you be riding this weekend?

    This Friday I have the day off so I want to go riding. I am thinking either Fox Creek or Eagle Park ( I am in South Oz) Does anyone know the status of the the tracks?

    Dont bother going anywhere in a national park in SA today total fire ban means they are closed. Ididnt find out until I got there. I tried the linear park track that goes from the hills to the beach. I did 45 Km didnt go all the way to the beach just to Adelaide from the hills I havnt ridden that far before in one go. I think my legs hate me!

    Wannabe, there is a huge network of trails around here. It's great.

    I waited until Sunday when the trails had dried out a bit - got a bit of rain here on Saturday but the next day it was largely dry.

    This link should give you some good info here!!. For what it is you would think it would be easier to find info on it, hard to find much on it.

    Basically it has a 1k bit of single track, a pump track and a skills section. Not a whole lot but I think it should be fun

    Ok thanks. That one I'd heard about - have been meaning to get there. I thought you meant something in Nth Sydney (the suburb)!

    Plenty Gorge some time this afternoon, from Greensborough/Bundoora side. Doubt we'll get over the river for the longer stuff on the north/east, but it's a bit sensitive over there since someone has been cutting new trails with too much weedspray and lopping young trees, and upset the Ranger who has closed at least part of the new stuff since.

    Have a look on Trailflix. Gives you a bit of info.

    TrailFlix - Bruce Ridge

    Coming from Yass, take the Gungahlin drive exit. Its finished now. dual lane all the way. Take the Belconnen Way exit. Then after a bit veer left. Think the sign says to North Canberra or something. You will come to a roundabout. Go left onto Dryandra St. The parking area is just up from there on your left. Last time i just parked on the dirt on the side of the road and rode back down to the bike path (this was because i saw a magpie swooping ppl who road straight through from the big wide parking area). Head west on the bike path that takes you to Bruce Stadiium. Before you get to the underpass, you head off the bike path and should come to a gate. Chuck your bike over and you should see some singletrack.

    The first time i did it, i went clockwise or went left from the gate but i think anti-clockwise is the go. Last time i headed right (basically west)

    The map pretty much shows it all

    http://www.trailflix.com.au/tfx_new/...ge/topomap.pdf

    If you look on google maps, most of the trails are in that pocket between Gungahlin Drive and Belco way. It says Bruce Ridge Nature reserve.
