May 4 – Group ride starting at 9 am and cookout at noon at York River State Park (no official meeting this month.) Kirk and Penny will be grilling some burgers.  Please bring a side dish to share with the group.

This is the same day as the Annual Burning of the Socks to kick off paddling season.  So you can ride, have lunch, then get in the water.  More info at https://www.visitwilliamsburg.com/events/burning-socks-canoe-kayak-season-kick

June – We are hoping to plan a trip to Pocahontas State Park.  Come out for the day or plan to camp.  We are all busy so chime in if you are interested and which weekend is best.  Post on EVMA Chatter or email Melanie at melanie_storrs@yahoo.com.  We will likely discuss this at the next meeting.

Sept. 20-22 – Tentative dates for fall Douthat trip.


Photos Needed – The Newport News Department of Tourism is updating their website’s MTB Trails page and is requesting pictures of riders on Harwood’s Mill and Lake Maury trails. Please send any you have to mgrossdvm@mindspring.com.

Need a new bike? – You’ve been thinking about it, and there are two upcoming events where you can take a spin on a new bike.  Mark your calendars and come on out:

Sunday, May 12th – Rocky Mount Demo 11-3 at Pocahontas State Park

Sunday, June 23rd – Trek Demo at Freedom Park 10 am-1pm

Volunteer Needed – EVMA is seeking a new VP of trails.  Duties include collecting information from trail leaders and reporting to the group.  Please contact Mike Benton if you are interested.
