Join us for a group-ride at York River State Park*, Sat, Sept 16, 9:30 AM wheels-rolling time. Should be pretty decent weather. Meet in the parking lot just past and to the right of the pay station, near the restrooms.
All are welcome, but this is a tune-up ride for our Ray's Town trip next week to get our climbing legs warmed up by riding the more challenging trails: Marl Ravine, Bobcat, & Chesapeake Challenge.
*Parking fee required.
Sept 10th group ride CANCELLED DUE TO RAIN Saturday and more in the forecast for Sunday morning. Sorry. We don't want to cause damage by riding on wet trails.
Normally Bob Branch leads a ride on the 2nd Sunday of the each month (always weather-dependent) at Harwoods Mill, 10:00 AM wheels rolling time. This ride is a friendly pace, not a race pace. Look for the next one on Sunday, Oct 15.
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.

Group Ride this Sunday, Aug 13, 10:00 AM wheels rolling time, Harwoods Mill, weather dependent so look out for a possible cancellation in case we get more rain. This is the regular second Sunday of the month ride led by Bob Branch, at a friendly pace, suitable for more casual riders. Thanks, Bob!
Meet by 9:00 AM at the big parking lot near the pool and restroom building. We're starting early to beat the heat and possible afternoon rain/storms. Ride leader - EVMA VP Marlie Smith. We plan to ride the Swift Creek trails.
WEATHER UPDATE: best chance of rain is after 2:00 so the ride is still on.

Group ride & lunch at New Quarter Park, June 17 (We finally settled on a date!) After several date changes, the new date is Saturday, June 17, 10:00 ride and noon lunch. This ride and lunch is sponsored by the Trek Store in Williamsburg, who approached the EVMA about hosting. (This is not an endorsement by the EVMA of any bike shop – we love them all! – but why would we turn down this offer?) In addition to riding and lunch, the Trek Store may have coupons and giveaways. Feel free to bring a side dish or dessert to share but no need to bring anything.
Start early before possible afternoon rain (17% to 55% chance?) High temp around 65-71o. Meet in the big parking lot by the pool and restrooms NO LATER THAN 9:30 AM. Look for a silver Tacoma. Parking fee required at entrance station.
