Manly Dam Mountain Bike Circuit

I just rode Manly Dam for the first time in the company of James Taylor, as a night ride. Fantastic riding, quite technical, lots of dropoffs. I had a couple of minor mechanicals - an uncooperative drivetrain and a rear puncture being the worst of it, so only one circuit completed this time round. Ride time 50m 14s, first run, at night, on one light. ~20 minutes wasted with puncture.

It's close to 10km, with very varied riding from gravel trail, tarmac, rocky uphill, slick downhill, jumps and rock gardens, so a potentially good training circuit

Pics and daytime descriptions to follow.

Afterwards, ride down to Manly and have a beer at the Four Pines, or head up and grab one at the Brookvale.
