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.

Just When You Thought It Was Time to Put Away the Bike

Snow is coming and Fat Bikes are here to stay. To embrace this new phenomena, we will be posting Saturday and Sunday morning Fat Bike rides throughout the winter months. All skill levels are welcome. So, come on out and have a great time. If biking in the winter is not your thing, Wednesday or Thursday nights will be snowshoe nights to pack down the bike trails. So, we all can stay in shape this winter, one way or the other. Reply to this message if you are interested in being on the trail crew for packing trails.

With generous amounts of lime-stone screenings added,  the newly constructed switchbacks and structured "up's",  will hopefully set up quite nicely.  We will wait to see how the lines get ridden in before we do much, if any tweaking.

Dog Strangling vine has been knocked back on Ogre and Out.  Thanks to 2.5 hours of work by Mike Danilko, some of the encroaching DSV has been cleared back from the trail.  Everyone who works on this stuff comes away cursing.  It's tough stuff. ...
