Weekly update November 19th

Hi EVMA. I hope everyone is staying warm. It seems like winter has arrived a little early. But temperatures will be a little warmer tomorrow so come join us at freedom park for a night ride!! Remember night rides are Tuesday’s at Harwood mills, Wednesday’s at new quarter, and Thursday’s at freedom. Rides are 6pm-8pm. Rules: 1. No one rides along 2. At Harwood mills be sure to get a parking pass so you don’t get ticketed (the ride leader will pass them out in the parking lot at 6pm) 3. New quarter-must park outside the gate, gates close at dark. 4. Need at least one light on the front of bike or helmet. **There will be no night ride the night of thanksgiving**

This weekend there will be a ride at freedom Saturday and York River on Sunday, both beginning at 10am.

Mike Benton will be leading some trail work this Saturday at freedom park as well. Meet at 9am in the parking lot! He would like to finish the berm on trail A, and then some clearing on trail D. If you have loppers or a wheel barrow, it would be helpful!

The December meeting is going to have an extra planning session associated with it. Once normal monthly meeting concludes, the plan is to spend some time discussing the future of the EVMA trails. As a club, it would be beneficial to set up a 3-4 month schedule for maintenance, a yearly schedule for smaller projects, bigger maintenance and similar items. It would also be useful to work out a 5 year plan on where the club sees the trails going. If you are interested in being a part of this discussion and the future of our trails, please make every effort to attend. If you cannot attend the December meeting but are very interested in the discussion, put some thoughts down on paper and email them to advocate@evma.org so that your ideas and thoughts can be part of the discussion.
Have a great week! See you on the trails!
