Hello, EVMA Members!

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

EVMA Membership

Membership lapsed?  Our inexpensive membership dues are an important source of revenue used for trail maintenance and improvements. In the coming year we'll be working on plans to extend the trail network at Harwood Mills, make bridge improvements at Wahrani and York River State Park, general trail repair at New Quarter Park, and extend rock gardens on the Marl Ravine Trail, to name a few. It's fast and easy to renew your membership online at the EVMA website, and help keep mountain bike trail access advocacy rolling for all of us. Renew Now.

Do you know someone who's bike-curious? Reassure them that they're not alone, and that they can find an understanding and supportive environment at our EVMA beginner rides. These no-drop, leader based rides are held the first Saturday of most months, and are a great introduction to the manna that is mountain biking, and the ridiculously awesome riders of the EVMA. See the details, and forward to a friend!
