EVENTS COMING UP
Feb 8 – Trail work at Wahrani at 9 am. Come help get this trail in shape for our Leap Day Ride. Meet at the parking lot. Bring gloves, water, and your bike to ride afterwards. If you have never ridden this trail, it is very different from other trails and a lot of fun. Lunch will be provided for all of our volunteers.
Feb 15 – Group ride York River State Park starting at 10 am. Meet in the parking lot just past the Ranger shed.
Feb 22 – Trail work at New Quarter Park at 9 am. Meet in the main parking area, closest to the trail.
Feb 29 – Leap Day Ride at Wharani. It only happens once every 4 years so don’t miss it. Ride Leader: Mike Benton.
Night rides – Night rides are still happening at Harwood’s Mill on Tuesdays, New Quarter Park on Wednesdays and Freedom Park on Thursdays but will end the first week of March. Get out and ride while you still can. Rides begin at 6 pm and we have to be out of the parks by 8 pm. Every rider should have 2 lights, and no one should be riding alone. Rides will be canceled if there are not at least 2 riders.
Spring Trip Survey – You should have received a 1-minute survey from EVMA this past weekend. Please take a moment to express your interest in the spring trip so final plans can be made. If you have not taken the survey, please take it now https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FK2D525.
Lake Maury Trail Signing - Newport News park has asked Mike Gross to sign the trails at Lake Maury as was done at Harwood’s Mill. Mike needs someone who is very familiar with the trails to consult on a loop system, and later install the signs. Please contact him if you are able to help.
A Big Thank You – Thank you to everyone who donated to the EVMA trail fund in December. There were over $700 in donations brought in that will not go to any admin expenses. It’s never too late to donate. All donations go directly to trail maintenance.
