OTHER NOTES

A Big Thank You – Thank you to all the night ride leaders that showed up every week:  Todd Smith at Freedom, Steve Dye at New Quarter, and Eric VanDusen & Joe Klingshirn at Harwoods Mill.  If you see these guys, please let them know how much we appreciate their effort.

Weekends On Your Wheels – The Youth Bike Series races will soon begin at New Quarter Park.  Although not an official EVMA event, it’s the efforts of many members that makes this event fun for many local kids.  Consider coming out to help, bringing your children out to race, or just come out to cheer on the kids. The pre-ride is April 2nd from 1-3 pm and the first race is April 9th.  Visit http://www.yorkcounty.gov/Portals/0/parks_rec/New%20Quarter%20Park/WOYW%20flyer%202017.pdf for more information and to register.
