Time to put money where mouth is: Pave the trail, put up a sign

Writing checks usually isn’t a lot of fun, but this morning I enjoyed writing one that will go twice as far as these things usually do.

It will be matched dollar for dollar by the Hawkeye Bicycle Association, which has pledged to spend up to $2,500 for each of two projects by matching members’ donations:

I’m supporting both of those projects. One will make more of the historic trail more accessible and encourage people to get out and be active. The other will increase awareness and, one hopes, improve safety.

Thank you, HBA.

Pedal on.
