August 20th weekly update

Good evening EVMA!!

Summer is coming to a close and kids will be heading back to school soon so take advantage of the upcoming group rides and make the most of what’s left of the summer! This Saturday, Harry has organized a trip to Bryce. This is a perfect opportunity for the kids, and definitly the adults, to give lift assisted downhill mountain biking a try. That’s right, i said lift assisted. No more pedaling up those pesky hills :) If you are interested in going, check out the facebook page events section for more details. If you decide to stay home and would like to ride, Kirk,Penny, and a few others will lead a ride out of York River State Park, 9am.

Sunday’s group ride is going to be a freedom park this weekend. Ride time 9am. This will also be a membership drive day where people can register at the park. The new moisture wicking shirts will be on sale ($15) along with Koozies and pint glasses.

It is with great regret that EVMA announces the cancellation of the 3rd annual EVMA Bike Festival, originally scheduled for Sept 13th at York River State Park. The planning committee has been facing several challenges and obstacles which have sadly forced Eastern Virginia Mountain Bike Festival (EVMBF) to cancel this year’s event. We want to thank the EVMA members that were poised and ready to attend and volunteer at this year’s event. We would also like to thank all our Sponsors who over the last three years have helped us by supporting our event both with their hard earned dollars and products. Please understand that lots of consideration went into this very tough decision.

Enjoy this last weekend of August and stay tuned for details on the upcoming club meeting on Sept 6th.

Happy Trails!!
