Weekly Update February 26th

Hello EVMA Members! Here is your update from the amazing world of local mountain biking! 

Thank you to all of the volunteers who helped out at the New Quarter Park Trail Work Day last weekend! 

With all this wacky weather, we'd like to remind you all to please allow wet trails to dry before riding. Also, we expect a large amount of fallen branches and trees down at all of our parks. Ride with caution, and stop to remove a branch or two during your ride. If everyone does this, the trails will be clear in not time! Report trees down that require sawing on the EVMA Chatter page. 

Events This Week

  • February 27th We will have a booth at the JCC expo from 9am to noon at the JCC Recreation Center, stop by to say "Hi!"
