send a message to and it will be forwarded.

Keep in mind trails D and E are still reversed and will remain so through the end of the week. Many people have been trying it out and it sounds like it’s a bit of a challenge!

As a side note, the club understands that the community can benefit from an opportunity to reach out to the club when they are looking to sell bikes, or parts, or try to buy as well. We want to keep our emails free of this kind of traffic, however, please feel free to post about it in the EVMA chatter page or on the official EVMA facebook page!! Thanks for your understanding!
