More Cycling with the LCBA & Law Club Social!


The LCBA “Tailwind” bike rides were such a success that another series of rides have been planned for August and September.  The next rides will be held Thursday, August 23 and Thursday, September 6, with the September 6 ride being held in conjunction with the Linn Law Club’s fall kick-off event.  Both rides start at 5:30 p.m. at the Cedar Valley Nature Trail parking lot off of Boyson Road in Hiawatha and will be approximately 15 miles.   The rides are open to all LCBA members and their cycling friends and family members. 

 Following the September 6 ride, the Linn Law Club will be meeting at Papa Juan’s, 5505 Center Point NE, for food & refreshments.   (If you don’t feel like riding, it’s ok to just show up for the social!)  Law Club is open to all young or newly practicing attorneys in Linn County.
