    Welcome back to RFG @atom and thanks for update. We must have just missed each other. I was there yesterday as well and other than a few wet spots it is good to go.

    I was just in Durham this morning. There are still wet spots where water sits in low areas or the sun doesn’t reach, but all of the higher ground and gravel/sand was looking pretty dry. I stayed on the main double track and it is noticeably drier than in the video posted from just 2 days ago – no more surface ice or snow other than where it was piled in shade. There hasn’t been frost in the ground in North Durham for weeks (we’ve been excavating since early March), so I would say Durham is on the verge of good to go, not 100%, but more than enough trail for courteous riders to get some turns in… should be wide open very soon.

    Great news. Durham Forest and EDH (Glen Major, Walker Woods) are good to go.

    Dagmar is still not open though.

    I’ll be hitting Durham tomorrow on the way home from work. Woohoo!

    Thanks Marc. Happy to see the old account is still active.

    I had a couple of good rides at Puslinch. Hoping to get back next weekend.

    Harold Town, Peterborough way, is slowly getting there. Still less than half the trails are rideable though due to lots of low lying dark cedar forests. Lots of the trail work going on and it’s getting better all the time.

    Great news, the DMBA just posted this on their facebook page;

    .
    DAGMAR IS OPEN,
    The SINGLE TRACT TRAILS are blown, dry and ready to ride.
    Dagmar is less than a year old and the trails are still breaking in. Please don’t ride them after a rain until the trails dry out as they are still susceptible to damage.
    Please park at approved parking areas and not on the road at either entrance to the property. This will keep you and your car safe and keep the neighbours from complaining.
    Enjoy

    Any thoughts on whether 3 Stage would be ready to ride on Saturday or Sunday? Given the amount of water and runoff in that area I figured it probably needs another weekend. But judging from how dry the Don was on Tuesday I’m wondering if 3 Stage might be good to go after all…has anyone checked it out?

    3Stage is apparently dry and ready to go.

    I rode Puslinch and Kelso this week. Both are good to go.

    Thanks @fasttimes

    I wonder if it’ll still be dry tomorrow or Sunday after last night’s rain. Sounds like Collingwood was forecast to get more than we did in Toronto. Might just have to head up north and check it out!

    My pleasure @tkorce. The report I heard said “bone dry” so I think you’re good. I rode today and trails were greasy but not wet. Pretty much dry as I wrapped up my ride. This was local but think they will be in the same boat in CWood.

    Maybe @wall66 can give us the 411?

    Got rain last night, continues to be overcast today. It will dry quickly right now because there’s no foliage to hide the sun/wind. Might be ok by tomorrow aft, or Sunday (as long as we don’t get anymore precipitation)

    All locations in and around Uxbridge are now open including Dagmar, Durham Forest, Glen Major Forest and Walker Woods. The Durham Mountain Bike Association has raked and blown all the single track in Dagmar and Durham Forest.

    Thanks everyone for the 3 stage updates on Friday. Rode Saturday and Sunday and trails were in great shape other than the usual wet spots on the main DH. Lots of people were out too!

    Rode Puslinch today. Despite the rain, trails are good to go. Few wet spots but grippy overall.


    Trails are getting dumbed down unfortunately. Still a great ride but sad to see.
