A fab Northern Beaches ride

I have hunted the maps of the Sydney northern beaches for two years now and gave up on ever finding a half decent trail between the great Manly trail and the super Dee Why/Narrabeen Lake.  Then I ran into Richard, the eBikeDiary guy in Gladesville and recognised his bike instantly.
