    Trail Conditions

    Does anybody know how are the trail conditions at Glen Major/Durham Forest?

    I'm not sure about Glen Major/Durham, but we should all do the trails a favour and stay off them until things have dried up and firmed up. I know it's tempting to get out and ride, but riding trails now does irreparable damage to the trail itself and to our image as a whole...

    Myself I plan on maxing the road km's until the trails are ready...

    Not DF but others

    In the east:

    Long Sault has about 2 feet of corn snow still
    Orono Crown is 60% bare and a bit of ice left (I was riding daily while it was frozen)

    Durham (Based on location to Long Sault) will be still partly frozen, like the above post mentioned, stay off until it melts and dries (not long for DF)

    Then you may want to preach to race organizers instead of to a general question.

    Another reason to not ride in the mud...

    ... is to prevent wear and tear on your bike especially the drive train. Getting mud on the chain and in the gears will shorten the life span of those parts immensely.

    I personally am sticking to the road until things dry up. (Despite how much I would rather be off road.)

    I wasn't preaching.....read the end of my post....and I would agree with you your comment in regards to race organizers...One thing I never understood was how as a mountain biking community we are suppose to respect trail conditions and stay off when it is wet, but it is ok to run a few hundred people through because it is a race...

    agree

    I agree with your statement about giving the trails a chance to dry out....I was just curious on to what the conditions are.
