    Here's something new and different!  Leake's Mill in Goochland is an XC style, mostly rake-and-ride style trail west of Richmond.  It has a cool natural half-pipe, some rooty sections, some fast sections, some short but steep off-camber hills, etc.  It's fun!  Restrooms on site.

    Meet our guy Steven at 10:00 AM for a guided tour.  Look for the red Tesla in the parking lot.  Check out Trail Forks for trailhead location.

    Group Ride: Saturday, Nov 18, Wahrani Nature Trail, 9:45 AM.  This is a group ride put on by Riverside Cycling in Richmond (https://www.riversidecyclingrva.com/).  Let’s crash their party (in a friendly way, of course).  Riverside Cycles wants riders to sign up here so they get an idea of how many people to expect:  https://facebook.com/events/s/riverside-weekend-shop-ride-at/3651006481847478/.

    Here's something different!  Join us on Sunday, Nov 5 at 10:00 AM to ride MASSANUTTEN'S WESTERN SLOPE TRAILS.  Some important info:

    1. THIS RIDE IS NOT FOR BEGINNERS.  You should be at least a solid intermediate rider who can do several serious climbs, descend, and ride over lots of rocks (a massage for your bike!). There is not shuttle service on Nov 5.

    2. Requires a waiver and an annual pass or day pass which you can purchase here: https://svbcoalition.org/western-slope-trails/

    3. Meet at 10:00 AM sharp in the parking lot at 4360 Happy Valley Rd., Keezletown, VA. 

    4. The weather looks somewhere between excellent and ideal.

    5. For more info, see the weekly EVMA e-mail and/or the link above.

    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.

    *The state park charges an entrance fee.

    This is our regular 1st Saturday of the month ride at Freedom Park. This ride will be a friendly pace, not a race.

    Please arrive BEFORE 9:00 AM and meet ride leader & EVMA President Mike Benton in the main parking lot near the big white park building.

    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.
