    Harwood's riders - we are having a working party this Saturday, 13 May from 9 AM - 1 PM to spread gravel along a few areas that are turning into mudholes. Please bring a steel rake, shovel, and wheelbarrow if you have them. Thanks!

    Meet in the main parking lot near the white park building.  Thanks to Dale Ashcom for leading this ride.  Look for him riding around on a shiny new Yeti.  Despite the sweet new bike, this should be a “friendly” pace, not a race.  This is the first of our new, regular, first-Saturday-of-the-month rides at Freedom Park.  We’ll rotate ride leaders and are looking for members willing to lead one in the future.  (You can choose which trails and set the pace.)  This is a great opportunity to learn these trails if you’re new to them, or if you just want somebody to ride with.  Bring your friends (and get them to join the EVMA).

    Come help with one of two trail work projects at Freedom Park.  10:00 AM start time (later than normal so no excuse that it’s too early!).  Bring work gloves and water.  Choose one of the two projects below and note the two different meeting locations:

    Project 1: Trail D wooden bridge replacement.  ***Meet at Hornsby Middle School (850 Jolly Pond Rd.) soccer field parking lot and we'll go in at access #20, 0.25 mile to the bridge.  We’ll need help hauling lumber in, placing the bridge, and hauling the old bridge out.

    Project 2: Trail C, repair/rebuild several features: Monster Bridge landing, Wall Ride, and the new dirt rollers/jumps just after Wall Ride.  Meet at the main parking lot near the park building and we'll walk in across the field and use access #5A.  ***If you can bring a wheelbarrow and/or shovel, please do, as we’ll be moving dirt and turf stones.

    The Marshview trail work previously scheduled for this Saturday (23 April) has been cancelled by the City of Virginia Beach, who now want to have a City representative on-site for any future work so they can address any further citizen concerns. The trail captain is still having a walk-through on Saturday, same time and location, to review what remains to be done. A tentative new work date of May 14th has been proposed, but we will announce the final date/time when we get closer and the City can confirm their participation.

    Good news! EVMA has the green light to resume work at the new Marshview trails. We will be having a work day this Saturday (4/23) from 9-12 for the back section of trails. Please bring your shovels/rakes and meet in the dog park parking lot at 8:45 as we have before.
