More Group Rides – Thank you to everyone who has stepped up to lead a group ride. We still need volunteers to keep our ride calendar full. You don’t have to be fast enough to actually “lead” the ride, you just have to be present in the park for the duration of the ride. Please contact Melanie Storrs at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can lead a ride.
Ride with Friends – Are you planning a bike ride for this weekend? Get on EVMA Chatter and tell others where you are riding. It’s always more fun to ride with friends.
Volunteer Needed – EVMA is seeking a new VP of trails. Duties include collecting information from trail leaders and reporting to the group. Please contact Mike Benton if you are interested.
