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. 



Norco Torrent 7.2 Donated to DMBA By Live To Play Sports

The DMBA wants to thank Live to Play Sports for the donation of a Norco Torrent 7.2 mountain bike. The Norco Torrent is one of a growing band of Plus bikes, running fat, high volume rubber at low pressures to improve grip and comfort. The bike is available to DMBA members to demo over the next year. If you would like to Demo this bike please email john.fisher@durhammountainbiking.ca.


Even though the Chalk Lake Road access trail has been closed the 7th Concession Access Trail will remain open until the first significant snowfall or until the trails can't handle the freeze-thaw cycle we have been having.
If you are going to ride Dagmar the only entrance is by 7th Concession. If you find this trail muddy or slick please turn around and find another area that is dry to ride.
The trails at this time of year vulnerable and we need your support to protect them.

Trail conditions

With the warm temps the last few days, the trails in Dagmar have a lot of slimy sections. Best to stay off the trails until next spring and ride Durham or EDH instead.

Trail conditions yesterday were excellent, for any time of year, damp but firm. Leaf blowing was done on the north trails. Early in the week it was snow, slush or damp leafs going north to south through the forest. Trails conditions, as always...

Rode Cenennial Park yesterday, trails were all dry and in good shape.  The trails we cleared last fall are even still pretty clear now. Just need a little cleanup, schedued for next weekend. With a good turnout it won't take long!

Rode greenwood today, I'd say it's about 95% dry on the 14 km I covered.  Low lying areas typically don't dry up until mid May see last image (avoid these areas).  Otherwise good to go. 

As a side note I'll probably be doing short Sunday...

Ground still not completely thawed in Ravenshoe, so after massive rain fall there is a lot of water!!! Freezing rain, snow and winds brought many trees down. Please wait a another 2wks for trails to dry. Thank You
