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.

Possible Website Interuptions this Weekend

At approximately 5 p.m. today (Friday, Dec 19th) we will be moving the website to a new host.

During the move you will not be able to send out event notifications or signup/renew your membership. Once the move is complete we will let you know when you can recommence event notifications and membership signups/renewals.

During the transition our e-mail system will still be functional so feel free to contact us with any questions.


Badly Damaged Trails in Durham Forest

I hope that I’m preaching to the choir, but Durham Forest trails are in an ugly mess. I have been riding for 14 years in that forest and have never seen the level of damage that was evident when I went for a ride today. Last Saturday, the trails were frozen hard and in good shape but today, although frozen, were rutted badly from their use sometime last week.

Knocked down trees cleared by LSRCA.  Someone keeps knocking em down and LSRCA keeps cleaning them up.  Thanks for reporting.  Thanks for clearing the trails.  You also missed a spot.

Dog Strangling Vine knocked back on Ogre and Out.  Thanks to 2.5 hours of work with the line trimmer by Mike Danilko, the DSV has been set back a few months through the Meadow and from "Ernest's section" of Ogre's.  Everyone who works on DSV...
