Sat run volunteers

May 13th, 2022 by in Everything

Hi all, Jodi from Gotta Run is having an event tomorrow at MOC. If anyone feels like helping out, let me know. 9am at MOC. Likely sweeping (slow bike ride) or whatever she needs. She’ll get you some awesome lunch from Taphouse and should be done by 1pm.

Cheers!

 

Sat Ride and FYI, running race at MOC Sat am & River is open!

May 12th, 2022 by in Everything

Weekend ride will be at 2pm Saturday. There is a running race event in the morning on Saturday so best try and ride after that if possible.

And the Taphouse Pub will be there for the race doing their famous Smash Burgers. So us cyclists can see if there are any left-overs from the running race if you feel like a pre-ride (or re-heat-post-ride) burger. Yum!

AND I had my first swim in the river today after a run. Wow, that was awesome. MOC has it all going on…fireplace in the winter, river in the summer! The new trail (Happy Trail Part2) is packing is really well. Hopefully another new build soon. Amazing…

 

Happy Hour “touch up” Friday at 1:30pm

May 6th, 2022 by in Everything

I’m heading out to do some small upgrades to Happy hour this aft at MOC. Nothing big, just two spots that need a bit more of a berm to hold fast lines!!!

If anyone wants to dig/help out for an hour and a bit that would be awesome. Again, it’s a small project so we don’t need a big crew…

1:30pm-3pm at MOC.

Cheers!

The weekend! Saturday DCF clean up day, Sunday MOC Ride

April 29th, 2022 by in Everything

As DC is hosting a DCF clean up/trail maintenance day that TVG will be at to show support and appreciation for DCF trails, the ride will be Sunday at 1pm. Looks like warm temps and some drizzle but that makes for awesome trail conditions so we are going out to have some fun.

DCF clean up is Sat at 10am.

Ride is at 1pm Sunday starting from MOC. Let’s check out the new berm…who doesn’t love that stuff!

 

Update info for Sat DCF clean up

April 26th, 2022 by in Everything

From Caroline (County Forest Manager)

Hello everyone,

Here are some more details about our Friends of the Dufferin County Forest event planned for April 30, 2022, 10 am – 3 pm. This will be a wholly outdoor event at the Main Tract to do spring trail clearing and garbage/litter pick-up.

We will meet in the “event field” (follow the road parallel to Airport Road going south) at 10 am and disperse into the Forest from there.

Please bring any favourite hand tools such as pruners and rakes as I will have limited numbers available. Anyone certified to do chainsawing, please bring your saw and safety equipment.

We will be providing lunch – in order to facilitate that, please:

If you plan on attending, RSVP before end of day on Thursday, April 28.

Let me know if you have allergies to gluten and/or lactose and/or are vegetarian.

If you have any questions, please reply with them.

Thank you,

Caroline

 

Friends of Dufferin Forest day! Sat April 30th (and you do not have to be a member..everyone is welcome)

April 25th, 2022 by in Everything

This Saturday Dufferin County is hosting a “clean up day” at the Main Tract. E-mails have gone out to those who have registered as “Friends” with the County, but everyone can come and help out.

The day starts at 10am and runs until 3pm. You can come and go as is convenient to you. There will be everything from parking lot clean up, to trail clean up and maintenance (we haven’t gotten to Hill Trail yet!).

It’s a great opportunity to display to the County your appreciation for having trails in the Forest and help out in keeping them awesome.

So hopefully you can give up a few hours of your time and lend a hand. Best to be there at 10am if possible. The more the merrier.

See you there!

April 30, 2022, 10 am – 3 pm.

Weekend Ride Sunday 1pm from MOC

April 22nd, 2022 by in Everything

Sunday, funday!!!!

Ride start at 1pm on Sunday.

It’s going to be a beauty day and trails are in awesome condition thanks to all the dedicated volunteers that DCF & MOC have to help keep them pristine. Cheers to all of them!!

 

Just a reminder to complete your DCF survey. Due April 22nd

April 19th, 2022 by in Everything

As a reminder….Dufferin County is reviewing their Recreation Policy this year. This is the policy that dictates and regulates what occurs in the County Forests regarding Trails & the Rail Trail.

Your feedback is extremely valuable and it’s very important to become involved in order to help guide the County on what users would like to see.

Please remember when answering questions that “trails” do qualify as infrastructure by most definitions. I think we all agree that we have seen the benefit of having sustainable, different trails for different uses and share your thoughts on the possibility of expanding those trail networks.

The reviewed Policy will replace the one that was created 4 years ago. Let’s demonstrate to the County that we appreciate and care about the trails that we are privileged to have the use of.

You will need to fill it out, save (download) it, then email it to forestmanager@dufferinmuseum.com

A bit of a pain but well worth the results!

Sat Ride, 2pm, MOC

April 14th, 2022 by in Everything

2pm start this weekend. Starting to look like a good weather day. 7 degrees and sun & cloud so should be good. We’ll hit up the brand new trail build in MOC that will be completed tomorrow! The crew has worked super hard on this one. I can’t believe that we started with nothing but a blank slate this morning…Happy Trail just got happier!

See you there!
