Good Afternoon, EVMA Members!

Here's what's happening this week in the wild world of local mountain biking:

Fall Trip Planning: It is time to make a reservation for the fall trip to Douthat State Park. We are considering the weekends of Sept 11th or 18th.  If you haven't done so already, please check the top post on our Facebook page to offer an opinion on which is better and if you might attend. Remember the UCI World Championships are in Richmond Sept 19th through 27th. Several people will be attending.

Group Rides 

  • Memorial Day Weekend - No rides planned.  Post on EVMA Chatter if you're looking for ride buddies!
  • June 6th 9:00 am Freedom Park - Dirt Divas & Beginner Rides

  • Trail Captains, monthly detail reports are due to the land managers! Please log your inspections and trail work or email Jim Irby and he will log them for you.

  • Protect yourself - The ticks and biting flies are out, and the first copperheads of the year have been sighted at NQP, YRSP & Freedom. Recent rains have made great conditions for ground-dwelling wasps to dig also. Keep a sharp eye out for hazardous critters, and use precautions against ticks.  Remember most snakes are harmless, but all of our trails are in Copperhead habitat.  Learn friend from foe at the Virginia Herpetological Society website, but please don't harm any snakes.
