Cycling group will match gifts for trail work, STR signs

The Hawkeye Bicycle Association will match members’ donations and give up to $2,500 to each of two fund-raising efforts in Linn County.

  1. One is the Linn County Trails Association’s capital campaign to pave the Cedar Valley Nature Trail from County Home Road to Lafayette.
  2. HBA members and other cyclists also are raising money to buy and install Share the Road signs on Linn County roads.

To make sure donations are matched by HBA, members should use the donation forms available on the HBA website. (Checks for both projects are payable to LCTA. You’ll see that on the form.)

If you’re not an HBA member (consider joining?) or you simply prefer to donate to the trail-paving project directly, go to the LCTA website and you can make your donation online.

In either case, donate by the end of the year to deduct your gift for tax year 2009.

Pedal on.

Full disclosure: I’m an LCTA board member and HBA member and want someone to buy me some trail paving and an STR sign for Christmas.
