New commer

Hi ..

I'm new in this forum, and currently thinking to relocate to sydney. I'm looking to learn about the MTB scene in sydney, routes, info and so on.

I currently ride mostly cross country (RIG 2012 single speed), and even road (commuting to work) on my GF COBIA 29er.

I really don't want to stop riding MTB if and when I arrive...

Google finds at least on Sydney MTB club.

One forum member on here often talks about riding at Manly Dam.

Sydney's Northern Beaches is pretty rich with places to ride, if you're looking for somewhere to live that's within reasonable commute time to the Sydney CBD.

I'm part of a rider group called NoBMoB (Northern Beaches Mountain Bikers) - take a look at - and it has a trails database with downloadable GPS maps, a moderately active forum and group rides organiser.

Trails cater for all levels of rider from beginner fire trails out-and-backs with brilliant views, to medium technical difficulty trails like Manly Dam, and even some gravity and freeride trails if those are your thing.
