Upcoming dates for work days in the Don

Coming right up on April 14th is our Spring Clean-Up. We're going to tackle the Ridge trail and haul out as much garbage as we can.
When: 10AM-12:30PM. We'll meet at E.T. Seton carpark (the "cricket pitch" end of the Ridge). Click here for a Google map. Gloves and garbage bags will be provided.

Next is our first Build Day on May 26th. Details to come, but please add it to you calendar - and we want to know, what area should we focus on? Send us an email or post up on our Facebook page.

Can't make these? There are a few other dates for which we're putting out the call for TORBA volunteers. These are public events and we want to lend a hand. 

Saturday May 5th - We're working with Youth Unlimited on the Bayview Bike Park Park revitalization like we did last year. Here's the event page on Facebook.
Saturday June 9th - Trail Maintenance in Crothers open to the general public - buff the trails for the MTB Fest the next weekend!

We're not done for the year! We'll take a break after the MTB Fest on June 16th, and we have more dates lined up for events in the fall.

AGM: Upgraded TORBA Board!

TORBA's AGM provided an opportunity to discuss our strategy for the upcoming year, plans for the MTB Fest and other opportunities.

Alastair Patterson has stepped down as President, pending his move to Calgary. Stepping up to the President role is Graham Seaman, and returning as Directors are Jesse Edwards, Jean Michaud, Aaron Kempf and Richmond Sedcole. Joining the Board as newly-elected Directors are Andy McKean, Chris Svirklys, Greg Paszkowski and Wayne Felder.

This makes for a 9 member board, with a lot of energy, enthusiasm and good ideas for 2012… thanks to all who came out to lend support and share in the planning.

It's going to be a great year for biking in Toronto! We hope to see you at one or all of our upcoming events, or drop us a line to find out how you can get involved.
