What is DMBA?

Durham Mountain Biking Association is a non-profit association whose mission is to create, enhance and preserve trail opportunities for mountain bikers in Durham and York Regions. We formed in the fall of 2005 to advocate for mountain bikers in the Durham Region. With a growing membership, who live across the Greater Toronto Area, we have evolved and expanded our representation of and for the mountain biking community. 



Thanks to Our Awesome Volunteers

 This morning, an enthusiastic team of 12 hard-working DMBA volunteers put a total of approximately 36 man hours into clearing the new trail tread for this Fall’s build (Oct. 18). The work went really well and, with some serious bucksaw work, dexterous lopping and slightly less elegant log removal, we were able to clear about 750m of the 1.5 km total trail length. It is always amazing to see the transformation that takes place from a piece of forest that is difficult to walk through to becoming an enjoyable foot path and it will soon be a great bike trail.

Volunteers Needed

The DMBA needs your assistance. As you may or may not know, the DMBA operates on a volunteer basis. The ride leaders you see out on the trails as well as the people that work behind the scene (Trail Crew, Directors, Etc.) are all volunteers who give their spare time to the sport they love. As a result of the busy life that we all have, we have not been able to consistently bring you the Saturday Ride from 3ROCKS. We are asking that someone (or a couple/group of people) step up and volunteer to post out and lead rides from the 3Rocks lot to ensure that everyone can get their bike fix.

The trail south of post 33 has serious damage, possibly due to last night's heavy rains. The center section of the trail has been washed out for a length of (I'm going to guess) five to ten meters, so that only a narrow, deep ditch...
