Happy Wednesday EVMA!

Come out an join us this weekend for our group rides at Freedom Park on Saturday, York River State Park on Sunday. Both days rides will begin at 10am!

Don’t forget about the winter solstice celebration coming up in 1.5 weeks. December 21st at Freedom park from 4pm-8pm. There will be a night ride, followed by a chili cook off. It is $2 per person for the chili cookoff. There will be a meat category and a veggie category, but if you are willing to bake some cornbread or dessert that will be welcome as well!! The winner of the meat category will split the cash with WOYW. The winner of the veggie category will receive an EVMA prize! We hope to see you there!

Don’t forget, as with all night rides, you must have at least one light on the front of the bike, and never ride alone! Night rides are still happening at harwood mills on Tuesday, New Quarter Park on Wednesday, and Freedom on Thursday!

We are putting together a jersey order. Go to: http://www.champ-sys.com/cycling/ for item descriptions. Short sleeve jersey is $55, long sleeve is $66, long sleeve fleece is $95 and wind jacket is $65. We will have samples for sizing at our January 3rd club meeting at Freedom Park, and the final deadline for orders will be Jan 18th. All items must be paid for before order is placed, or they will not be ordered. To place your order you may email advocate@evma.org with your item and size.

The facebook page is now open for the photo contest. We want to see your best pictures from a mountain bike ride or trip. You can officially enter 3 pictures per person to be judged at the EVMA winter social on February 8th.

We are putting together an official trails committee. If you are interested in having more of voice in what happens with our trails this is a great opportunity to help the club out. If you are interested in volunteering a little bit of your time, email Harry at trails@evma.org!

EVMA is putting together an EVMA Challenge 2015. During the upcoming year, each month the club is going to offer up a riding challenge. If you complete your challenge during that month, you can submit your completion to an email (coming soon!) and you will receive a certificate. For every 3 months you complete you will get a new prize. All prizes will be handed out at the end of the year, however, each month you will not only be competing for a prize, but for bragging rights!! Keep an eye out for an email soon that will discuss more details about the challenge!

Happy Trails!
