EVENTS COMING UP

April 1st – Group ride at New Quarter Park followed by club meeting possibly at Virginia Beer Company.  More details coming soon.

April 27th- 30th – Spring trip to Raystown Lake in Pennsylvania.  The cost will be $45 per tent/$55 per camper (food not included but we will be doing a potluck one night and Mexican night potluck another). We learned that some of the trails will be closed while we are there but we should still have about 25 miles of trail to ride.  Registration is currently open at http://evma.org/event-2463118. 

OTHER NOTES

Thank you!  Night rides are officially over for this year.  A big thank you to all of our ride leaders who gave up their time to be out there each week: Etienne Brochet, Eric VanDusen & Joe Klingshirn at Harwoods Mill, Todd Smith at Freedom, and Steve Dye at New Quarter.  Great Job!

Wet Trails – We are going to get a lot of rain this week.  Be sure to let trails dry out before riding.

Volunteer Opportunities – EVMA needs a few volunteers.  If you are able to help, contact Jim Irby:

  • 1.       An EVMA member who lives in Williamsburg is needed to do an interview for the “Next Door Neighbors” local magazine. 
  • 2.       EVMA is looking for a host and ride leaders for the fall trip.
  • 3.       One or more volunteers are needed to represent EVMA at the Weekends on your Wheels races.

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. If you are interested in helping, contact Crystal or Beav.  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.

New EVMA Signs – Have you seen the new signs at some of the local parks?  These signs let the public know just who is responsible for building and maintaining the awesome trails.  Thank you to Mike Gross for getting the signs up at Harwoods Mill and New Quarter Park last week.  Signs will soon appear at Freedom Park.  Wahrani and YRSP are next on the list.
