Just in case you are not signed up for the biweekly Ride Reminders... Here is what yesterday's Ride Reminder consisted of. Sign up in the upper left hand corner of the site.
Project Destiny – How will you Vote?
PLEASE VOTE on Tuesday July 8th!!!

Voters in Polk, Dallas and Warren counties will decide Tuesday whether to raise the sales tax from 6 percent to 7 percent on most goods and services. Here is a primer on the issue before you place your ballot.

Forty-one of the 48 governments in Dallas, Polk and Warren counties have agreed to spend $6.375 million on Recreational trails over then next 10 years.
Currently there is less than $200,000 annually spent on recreational trails in Iowa. With the penny increase, Recreational trail funding would increase 3+ times annually. I believe this increase is needed make Central Iowa “Trails Capital of the World”.

Educate yourself on all the details regarding the "Yes to Destiny" plan before voting on Tuesday July 8th.
