EVENTS COMING UP

April 23rd – Group ride at New Quarter Park starting at 8:30 am.  Check Facebook for more information.  Go get some lunch then come back for the kid’s race.

April 23rd – Weekend of Your Wheels kid’s race at New Quarter Park.  We had a great turnout at the first race and look forward to this weekend.  Register at 12:45 and races begin at 1:30.   Volunteers are needed to help with the race, as well as one or two club members to talk to attendees about EVMA. 

April 27th- 30th – Wow!  Next weekend is the spring trip to Raystown Lake in Pennsylvania.  The cost will be $45 per tent/$55 per camper (food not included but we will be doing a potluck one night and Mexican night potluck another). If you haven’t signed up, there are still some slots available so register soon at http://evma.org/event-2463118. 

May 6th – Next EVMA gathering.  Group ride will be at York River State Park at 9am and possibly go to Alewerks afterwards for a beer.  We are trying to gather information about a food truck.  More information soon.

Wednesdays – A group of EVMA members are riding Wednesday evenings at 6pm at Gatewood in Newport News.  Check EVMA chatter or just show up if you would like to ride.

All spring – When the pollen is not too thick or the weather crazy, spring is a great time to ride.  If you are planning to ride, post when and where on EVMA chatter.  Riding is more fun with a friend.

June 3rd – EVMA gathering at Freedom Park.

OTHER NOTES

Volunteer Opportunities – EVMA needs a few volunteers.  If you are able to help, contact Jim Irby:

  • 1.       EVMA is looking for a host and ride leaders for the fall trip.
  • 2.       One or more volunteers are needed to represent EVMA at the Weekends on your Wheels races.
  • 3.       EVMA would like to host a kid’s ride (that is not a race) to get more children involved in mountain biking.  We need some volunteers to help organize this.
  • 4.       The club runs on volunteers.  EVMA always needs trail captains, ride leaders, board members, and club trip hosts. 

Trail Work Challenge - Also, if you are out riding, take a few minutes to pick up fallen branches or cut back a few of those face slappers. EVMA President Jim challenges everyone to spend 10-15 minutes of a future bike ride doing a little trail work.  See the Chatter page for more information. Remember to report any downed trees to president@evma.org or post on Facebook.  Please include the park, trail, mile marker and a picture, if possible.  Please don’t do any leaf blowing or major trail modifications without permission.
