Hi guys: Do you know any ways from Cronulla out of Sydney to Kangaroo valley and surrounds via the dirt?

Hi Mike: The short answer is no. To find dirt roads open to the public you have to go north-west to Wisemans Ferry, west to Windsor or south to Nowra. Any national park close to Sydney is securely gated. Travelling south from Cronulla you can ride the main road through the Royal National Park but that's as good as it gets. We re-signed ourselves to black-top miles all the way to Nowra a long time ago. To make it worse, the road to Nerriga is now sealed, so not matter what direction you go, getting out of Sydney is ugly. If you are looking for adventure bike routes, check out the Travel section in www.offroadexplorer.com or do what we do and do your research starting with Google maps.
