Welcome

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.

Trail conditions

Mike Danilko - Wed, Nov 29, 2017

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
