    Sorry for jumping the gun on the DMBA guys but I wanted to make sure the RFG community is aware of the upcoming grand opening of 12km of new single track on the Dagmar North property, part of the “Durham Forest” riding area.

    Early indications are that the trail crew have outdone themselves, building some sweet, flowy single track with optional features and a lot of fun.

    It would be fantastic to have a solid RFG contingent present at the opening. I unfortunately have other plans and won’t be available except for perhaps an afternoon ride.

    Any chance an RFG member could be available to cover the opening and do an article for the site?

    we are just about ready to open the gates to an awesome new riding
    experience, right here in Durham.

    YOU ARE INVITED to the Grand Opening of the Dagmar North Trails on Saturday
    Sept. 12, 9:30am-2:30pm at Dagmar Ski Resort, 1220 Lake Ridge Rd. Join us for
    guided rides on the terrific new trails, BBQ lunch, live music, recognition
    and prizes – and help us celebrate the opening of Ontario’s newest network
    of mountain bike trails.

    * 9:30 Press conference and opening

    their facilities with us today; the TRCA for sharing their land; and many

    This project was funded by a $20,000 Canada trails grant and $21,000 from the
    DMBA and generous member donors. These 13 km of new intermediate and advanced
    singletrack are the culmination of eight years of planning and 5 months of
    intensive trail building by 200 volunteers who have invested over 5,000 hours
    of their energy and enthusiasm in the project. This is one of the largest
    volunteer trail building projects ever in Canada! Come one, come all – come
    see what we’ve built and celebrate our success!

    I’d volunteer to cover this for RFG and write an article but I have previous commitments on the 12th until about noon. Any RFG team members available to snap a few pics and do an article for the site?

    It is on the family calendar (in pen) which essentially means short of apocalyptic events I will be there. Happy to put something together for the site.

    Well my knee brace didn’t get ordered in time and I’m pretty sure my knee cant take much of a beating. If I can manage to get away and come up for just the bbq I will but it will be a day of decision. Can’t wait to get out and ride these trails when I do get my brace. Have a fun days guys.
