Hello EVMA Members,

Happy New Year.  With 2017 right around the corner, you are likely thinking about those New Year’s resolutions.  Have you been thinking of shedding a few pounds or just getting more exercise?  Maybe you want to make some new friends.  Or you would like to become more involved in the community.  EVMA can help.  Make new friends while getting some exercise.  Consider a volunteer position or just get out and help with some trail work.  Volunteer work also looks great on a resume if you are considering a career change.  Contact Jim Irby for more information.



EVMA does not have any group rides scheduled for the coming weekend but that shouldn't stop you from getting out. Check Facebook chatter to link up with other riders.

Reminder that Marl Ravine at York River State Park will revert to original direction on New Year's Day, get out Saturday and give it a try in reverse.

Plans are in the works for another work day at Wahrani Nature Trail this month.  There are several more bridge replacement or extensions planned and some trail rehab. Watch emails and Facebook for information.

January 28th- EVMA membership meeting and group rides.  Please plan to attend.


Also, in addition to First Day Hikes, there will probably be a number of equestrians at York River this weekend.  Please remember that on multi-use trails, bikes yield to everyone. It is customary to stop and allow horses to pass.  On John Blair Trail, remember to approach multi-use trail crossings with caution. Do not just ride through, they have right of way.

Have a great weekend and happy New Year!
