    I live downtown, never ridden the Don and I have no idea where that is. I'm going to try and make it, but I don't know where to go.

    I assume it's close to Bayview and I've found Redway Rd on google maps and it looks like it could be correct, but I'm not 100% sure.

    TIA.

    That's right on, I'm assuming people will park in the south end of the Loblaw's parking lot near the entrance to Crother's Woods.

    Should be great, I'm hoping for a big turnout so that we can get the trails cleaned up and ready for a long summer of riding.

    See y'all there!

    Great to hear you guys are planning to come along!

    Braids: You've got the exact spot. The Loblaws supermarket is the only thing on Redway Rd. If you drive past the supermarket and into the second carpark you should see lots of people at the trail head there.

    If you're keen on learning all the trails in the Don it's a good way to meet people to ride with.

    Thanks again to everyone who came out for our Clean up the Don Day - you guys all did an amazing job! We would also like to thank our Clean up Day sponsor, CIBC, who stepped up and helped us out.

    We had a good turn out and collected a lot of rubbish (and various oddities). The area around the three new, city and IMBA built, trails in Crothers woods are now clear of rubbish. Given the area, they will hopefully stay that way for the next couple of years at least.

    Here are a couple of photos from the day:

    We hope to have another clean up day, as well as trail maintenance and build days, later in the year. Keep an eye out here and at the TOBRA website:
