Centennial Park Poo Slalom

Average Rating:    (1.75 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 4

Its the numerous dog poo's that make this trail so technical & punishing if you stack it, although the landing is usually soft & squishy if not a bit pungent. Its a great way to relieve stess as you abuse dog walkers who constantly remind you not to ride on the track. For the more advanced rider, stop near one of the roads and get a ranger to chase you in there 4WD, nothing gets the adrenalin going better than fleeing the law. I've found that the rangers can be a bit lazy in chasing you so not wearing a helmet is usually a good way to inspire them. If tarmac pursuit is your go then just cuise on to the road track and do a few bunny hops and skids in front of the road racers, there great excersise, with practice you can get groups of up to 20 - 30 roadies sceaming for justice!

Summary:
Not to bad a trail in the burbs to ride to let off some steam.
If you start at the Paddington and follow the fence to your right it gets a bit fast and sand so its good for a speed hit.
You normally meet a few hoons in there (Myself included) Jumping around and being silly. WARNING!!!
The Rangers have signposted the trails for regeneration owing to us carving them up... (Thats what the Rangers say but its a load of crap. People and the dogs are to blaim.)
Dont get caught as the will fine you and a mate of mine got bounced for not wearing a helmet. Better off going on a group ride through the mountians so not to upset the latte drinkers and there little fluff dogs.

Recommended Route:
Any entrance near Paddington/ Bondi Junction

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Go to the Blue Mountians and go nuts properly!!

Reviewed by: David Porter , from Melbourne, VIc, Australia

Summary:
Before I moved to Melbourne I rode this track a couple of times a week before work. Some bits can be slippery in the wet. If you live in the inner-City it's about the only thing going. There are neat little sand sections, some open single-track and some tree roots (if you do the bush-section near the cafe). Only problem is that it's short and illegal. But there is nowhere else to ride around there. Once you do the off-road you can do laps around Centennial Park. The roadies hate it when a MTBer passes them. Never, never, never let a roady beat you. A roady must never be allowed to think that their flat, asphalted world is capable of comparing to our zen paradise.

Recommended Route:
Pretty straightforward: enter Centennial Park via any gate and trace the fence. I always did it counter-clockwise, with the fence ony my right.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
There aren't any.

Summary:
good track for beginners, walk in the park for experienced riders(like myself).Best part is to come flying down stairs at 30+ k's, and bunnyhop over wall and drop off rock face and continue down to rotunda.

Recommended Route:
start from BondiJunction station,terrorise shoppers,then follow road past bike shop to main gates.
