    Come help us replace the last wooden bridge on trail B at Harwoods Mill, Sat, Dec 9.  Meet in the parking lot by 10:00 AM.  Bring work gloves and water.  We'll provide everything else.  The city of Newport News has provided lumber and materials.  Bring your bikes to ride afterwards.

    Retirees!  Several of our older retired riders are getting together to enjoy the variety of the EVMA trails during the weekdays. The intent is to ride a different trail system each week as opposed to your usual local sessions. This would be an informal once per week ride, weather and holidays permitting.  The next ride for Wednesday, 06 December, 2:00, New Quarter Park.

    Sat, Dec 16 group ride at Pocahontas State Park, Swift Creek trails, time TBD (start time will likely be around 9:30 or 10:00 AM).  ***This is weather-dependent, so check back to make sure this is still on.*** Meet in the big parking lot by the pool and restrooms.  ***Parking fee or annual pass is required.

    *This group ride was requested by an EVMA member who has not ridden Poca yet but wants to ride there with people who know it.  This is exactly what we want for members suggesting group rides!  Please don't be shy about suggesting group rides like this!

    This is our regular 1st Saturday of the month group ride at Freedom Park.  Meet in the main parking lot for a 10:00 AM start time. 

    This is a no-drop pace (we won't leave you behind if you're slow), so if there is a wide speed discrepancy we might break into 2 groups.

    We get lots of new EVMA members but many miss the annual renewal e-mails (spam folder, too many e-mails, etc.) and their membership lapses.  Download the "Wild Apricot for Members" app from the Apple App Store or Google Play to get renewal reminders on your phone and never miss a renewal again!  It's free and you can renew and pay right from your phone.

    Here's something new and different!  Leake's Mill in Goochland is an XC style, mostly rake-and-ride style trail west of Richmond.  It has a cool natural half-pipe, some rooty sections, some fast sections, some short but steep off-camber hills, etc.  It's fun!  Restrooms on site.

    Meet our guy Steven at 10:00 AM for a guided tour.  Look for the red Tesla in the parking lot.  Check out Trail Forks for trailhead location.

    Group Ride: Saturday, Nov 18, Wahrani Nature Trail, 9:45 AM.  This is a group ride put on by Riverside Cycling in Richmond (https://www.riversidecyclingrva.com/).  Let’s crash their party (in a friendly way, of course).  Riverside Cycles wants riders to sign up here so they get an idea of how many people to expect:  https://facebook.com/events/s/riverside-weekend-shop-ride-at/3651006481847478/.
