I ended up going for a ride at 5PM on the 22nd.
Pottery Road to 3 Rocks, 3 Rocks, Sanitation Plant, The Ridge, Bunny Run and Garbage Cow were all in good enough condition to ride (besides a few spots of course).
Make sure to walk around the muddy/wet spots to preserve the trail. I keep seeing tons of tire tracks through the most vulnerable…[Read more]
Thank you and the other diggers for all the hard work that you’ve put into “The Don” over the years. It certainly doesn’t go unnoticed and you’ve cultivated one of the best riding/hangout spots in the entire city. I have many fond memories of riding the jumps with friends thanks to you.

I thought this article did an excellent job of capturing how unique The Don Valley trail system is. I highly recommend reading this to anyone that lives in Toronto, let alone rides there.
I would definitely recommend a hardtail for your second bike, but that’s based on the trails I ride, and how I like to ride them. I’m also in the market for a new bike, but am having trouble finding one that truly suits my needs.
I’m looking for a playful XC bike that would be comfortable hitting some dirt jumps.
The main reason I want to get a…[Read more]
Hey @blurredlines , sorry for the late reply. Thanks for taking the time to inform me of the its current status.
The main thing I’d like to see is the re-creation of the old log ladders and skinnies that were littered throughout the trail, and/or some new design ideas. It’s worth mentioning to those who oversee this project at The City of…[Read more]
