Good Afternoon, EVMA Members!

Here's what's happening this week in the crazy world of local mountain biking:

Trails  
  • Marl Ravine Trail remains reversed thru April and returns to normal direction May 1st.
  • Upper County  is next to a hunt club & it's turkey season. There is a land dispute, which means hunters may wander into the park. Hunters do not wear blaze orange in the spring. Exercise caution!
  • Freedom Park  D and E trails closed all day May 9th for single track Maniac Run.
  • New Trail Captains Thank you Chris Ferguson (NQP) & Greg Hurley (Freedom D) for volunteering!

  • New Quarter Park 30th Year Celebration*  Saturday, May 2nd. We are still looking for volunteers to help out with this event. It's not an all-day commitment, come out and help for an hour or two! VOLUNTEER
  • Kids to Park Day at YRSP May 16th -  Group rides, grilling lunch. Volunteers needed to lead rides at 9:00 & grill lunch 11:30 to noon. Contact Penny Rich or Kirk Moore to volunteer.
  • Be a ride leader  This one is easy. No ride leading is actually required, but "Ride Leader" sounds better than "Clip Board Monkey", so we went with it.  Bring a clip board with a sign-in page & collect the signatures of riders participating in the EVMA group ride. Contact Penny Rich to volunteer.
  • Events Coordinator needed contact Jim Irby  for more info, or to volunteer.
  • Fall Trip Organizer needed. Mostly involves showing up at  the park and guiding parking, etc. . .  Once again, email Jim Irby to volunteer.
Enjoy your week & Happy Bike Month!
