Durham Forest 99% Good Condition

Steve, Niall and I walked many km of Durham Forest this evening. We are happy to report that for the most part the forest is ready to ride. Some double track areas are still quite wet and muddy but 99% of the single track is well drained and rideable. In isolated places, short sections of ice remain on the trail but is much less than 1% of the trail lengths so shouldn't be much of an issue.

Hi Members, do come out and join us Saturday morning for our sixth annual clean-up of the road-sides boarding Durham forest and Glen Major/Walkers Woods, the 6th and  7th concessions adopted by DMBA.

Meeting at the Durham forest main parking lot for 9am.
The weather office says 10c, cloudy with 40% chance of rain.  Please bring work gloves.
 
Special notice to high school age members. This event qualifies as community service volunteer hours. What better way to log a few more hours than by spending them outdoors in a worthy endeavour.
