EVENTS COMING UP
March 25- Friends of York River State Park will be working on the Pump Track starting at 9:00 am.
April 1st – Group ride at 9:00 am at New Quarter Park followed by a short club meeting at Virginia Beer Company, 401 2nd St., Williamsburg. The Karnage Asada Food Truck will be on site serving a Latin-Asian cuisine. Bring money for lunch and a post-ride beverage.
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. There are still some slots available so register soon at http://evma.org/event-2463118.
Volunteer Opportunities – EVMA needs a few volunteers. If you are able to help, contact Jim Irby:
- 1. EVMA is looking for a host and ride leaders for the fall trip.
- 2. One or more volunteers are needed to represent EVMA at the Weekends on your Wheels races.
- 3. EVMA would like to host a kid’s ride (that is not a race) to get more children involved in mountain biking. We need some volunteers to help organize this.
- 4. A local cub scout pack has asked for a few volunteers to assist with a bike ride through Yorktown Battlefield on July 29th. We will need help with basic mechanics and bike safety, and road guards along the ride. It’s a long time from now, but if you have interest in helping, please contact Melanie Storrs.
Thank you to Kurt Bradley who interviewed with the “Next Door Neighbors” local magazine that will feature an article about the EVMA that will be published in Williamsburg.
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.
