    All About Connect CR, by Julie Kraft and Steve Sovern, Directors of Organizational Development, 7pm, Linn County Chapter IWLA Chapter House, 5401 42nd St. NE, Cedar Rapids, IA 52411

    ConnectCR brings together two major projects in Cedar Rapids--the revitalization of Cedar Lake and the creation of an iconic pedestrian/trail bridge south of downtown. Cedar Rapids City Manager Jeff Pomeranz calls the project a game-changer:

    "It's that quality-of-life amenity that Cedar Rapidians are going to be drawn to. We need these kinds of special places for our residents, for our businesses, and for our visitors.” ConnectCR will improve life in Linn County and beyond by expanding connectivity for recreation, improving under-utilized community assets, leveraging flood mitigation, and creating an iconic symbol for the city. Linn County Chapter of IWLA is proud to have Ms. Kraft and Mr. Sovern as our Special Guest speakers to address our members and the public on this exciting and innovative project for our community. Wildlife lovers, fisherman, bikers, hikers and paddlers will all benefit from a project like this. Please try to attend and don’t forget to bring a friend!

    For more information, and a short video,

    Best regards,

    Five Australians attempt to cycle 2600kms from Oklahoma to California in honour of the westward migration undertaken by 'The Grapes of Wrath's' Joad family. Through chance encounters with everyday Americans, the cyclists expand on the novel’s core themes of migration, inequality and the perceived land of opportunity. The group explores whether America has progressed since the book was written, discussing the wealth gap, immigration and the American Dream. The fascinating people they meet along the way reveal the enduring strength of human spirit despite the inequality and disenfranchisement which runs as deep today, as it did in Steinbeck’s seminal novel. The Bikes of Wrath is a unique, funny and insightful documentary filled with adventure, literature, music, and human connection.

    to make it more fun, they started with the same amount of money as the Joad family, adjusted for inflation.

      Important Notes:

      • Completing the REGISTER's on-line RAGBRAI form and HBA's RAGBRAI Application Form does not automatically get you a wristband and HBA accommodations. 
      • RAGBRAI allots 60 to 70 week-long passes to HBA.  We cannot guarantee passes for all applicants.  Local, active HBA cyclists who participate in HBA events and club rides get 'first dibs'.  Club members who are not local, and out-of-town relatives of local HBA members add a lot of fun to our shared experience, and they will continue to be welcomed. 
      • If the number of applicants for HBA exceeds the allotted number of passes, plan-B is for extra riders to apply for individual wristbands through the RAGBRAI lottery.  HBA can sometimes provide overnight housing and daily baggage transport if the extra rider can provide their own transportation to the starting town. 
      • Send a separate application for each person:  (More than one application can be mailed in the same envelope.)
      • You must sign the HBA RAGBRAI Application and the RAGBRAI waiver(minors only). Unsigned applications will be returned.  
      • The cancellation fee this year is $40 until April 30th and $80 afterward.  The remaining fee will be refunded when we are able to sell your spot.  This fee helps cover costs and effort associated with reselling the passes.
