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


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.


Since the fall of 2015, Mountain Bikers enjoying the Durham Region have been able to access the Dagmar North Trails off of Chalk Lake Road. Effective December 1st, 2017, access to the trails along this connection will be closed until further notice.

Ravenshoe YMBA Trail Crew Says Thank You

We had 14 members join us on our skinnies build and trail maintenance last Sat. Skunk is a trail that needs a lot of work and this crew helped get a muddy section rideable. Your efforts will help prevent widening of this trail and damage to vegetation. Thanks again and look forward to more work on this trail next year!
