Hi all

Great site and loving the trail maps. However is there anyway to know if these trails are suitable for CX bikes? Or is there a way to filter out more flat mountain trail for CX bikes? Thanks in advance

HI and welcome to the site.

Trails in northern Sydney you could do on a CX bike would include in rough order of increasing difficulty:
* The fire trails around Terrey Hills (Duck Holes, Centre, Perimeter and Long Trails)
* Cascades if you want to test your climbing legs
* Wylde
* Mt Annan Botanic Gardens
* Awaba
* Ourimbah
* Old Man's Valley Blue and Green rated trails

MWMTB has a trail incorporating the BMX track at JJ Melbourne Hills reserve that they actually run CX races on, but due to time conflicts I've never participated so can't advise on where it runs.

Manly Dam would be possible with but you'll be off and walking frequently I suspect.

Does that help?
