Water bottles will help pave Cedar Valley Nature Trail

Updated 4/21/10:

You need a new water bottle. You probably need more than one. Hydration, very important.

water bottle artSpecial deal: Buy a special “I Paved the Trail 2010” Specialized water bottle from Northtowne Cycling & Fitness and your $5 for each bottle all goes to the Linn County Trails Association to help pave a section of the Cedar Valley Nature Trail.

Through the Specialized Dealer Grant Program, the bicycle company and Northtowne made up hundreds of 500  “I Paved the Trail” bottles. At $5/per, that’s $2,500 Sales could generate more than $2,000 to help make the trail more accessible and more usable in wet weather.

Friends were just telling me about a bone-jarring bike ride they had on that trail, which apparently took a beating this spring. Good reason to go buy some new water bottles.

You’re thirsty anyway, right?

Drink up and pedal on.

Full disclosure: Your blogger helped write the grant proposal (a particularly fun one for a cycling/trails-advocating grant writer) and is hoping to be able to celebrate another win or two before long.

    Yep, let’s pave a nature trail. A wildlife refuge as the signs state along the trail. The same trail they are cutting down the old growth trees on so we can put down asphalt and get more ragweed growing. What a joke!!!!!!!!!!!!!
