Tour de Menlo: Riding for Rotary Scholarships and Community Service

Aug 20, 2016

The day was perfect for a ride to enjoy the scenery, but the riders that gathered last Saturday, August 20, 1016 are not just there to enjoy the scenery or get their weekly dose of workout. They were there for a meaningful cause. They were participants in the Tour de Menlo.

Attorney Nicholas Heimlich was there with the other participants in the event. He joined the 46-mile route of the event. There are two other routes that the participants could join and all three started at the Menlo-Atherton High School.

The Rotary Club of Menlo Park Foundation and the Almanac are the sponsors for the charity event. The proceeds generated by the Tour de Menlo are set to benefit Rotary scholarships and the Holiday Fund of the Almanac. The Holiday Fund gives out more than $100,000 to various nonprofit organizations in the area each year.

More than 500 people participated in this year’s Tour de Menlo. This is the 14th year of the said event and by all indications, it is still going strong. Aside from the 46-mile route there was the 35-mile and the 65-mile route which attracted participants. All of the three routes offered some hill-climbing which made the ride more interesting for the participants.

For the first time in the long history of the ride, there were celebrity participants which made it even more interesting. Fast Freddie Rodriquez, a former U.S. champion and a veteran of the famous Tour de France was there to lead the participants and to make the ride a bit more fun. Dr. Christine Thorburn also joined the riders; she’s a former Olympian and also a U.S. champion.

The celebrity participants made the whole event more interesting to the participants. They liked the idea of riding with champions.

Organizers say that the event was able to raise more than $40,000. The money raised is supposed to be split evenly between the Rotary Club of Menlo Park Foundation and the Almanac so they can use it to fund their own projects. SBM Fitness, Facebook, Sutter Health and other companies provided additional financial support for the event.

On top of the major ride that was held on August 20, the organizers of Tour de Menlo also held training rides before the main event. The training rides were meant to prepare the participants for the strain of riding in the tour. The training rides were held in Palo Alto, Los Altos, San Mateo, and Redwood City with celebrity riders on the lead.

Attorney Nicholas Heimlich was able to complete the 46-mile route. The Tour de Menlo is just one of the many charity events that he joins each year. For him, participating in those events is a means of giving back to the community. He is looking forward to joining next year’s Tour de Menlo.

Joining an event like the Tour de Menlo is one of the best means of helping out nonprofit organizations. One can have fun while assisting worthy advocacies, not to mention the fact that riding on a bike tour is also an excellent means of exercise.

This was the first time ever needing a lawyer for something, I was a bit frantic and overwhelmed with everything going on, but Nick and his team were very professional and honest, and made me feel at ease about my case. They were even professional and cool with the opposing attorney even though she was being unprofessional at times. In the end, they were able to settle my case and bring me a satisfying outcome. If you're ever in a bind and need a business lawyer, I highly recommend Nick and his team.

Mr Heimlich was very professional kind and knowledgeable when I give him a call. I was calling to hire an attorney for an tenant and landlord dispute. I had a particular issue that Mr Heimlich took time to completely listen to me. unfortunately the area I needed help was not an area that Mr Nick practiced. but he was not hesitant to give me some leads and direct me to the right place. he's a man of character and cares about what he does, I can only imagine his level of excellence in his area of expertise. he's a man of great character and I would recommend him for anyone to give him a call and talk to him. thank you very much Nick. thank you for caring .

I entered into a membership contract that had unreasonable cancellation requirements. I went to Nick through my company’s employee assistance program. Nick did thorough research and found that the contract term exceeded term limits allowed by California law. As a result, I was able to cancel the contract without any penalty. I was very satisfied with the outcome.

Great attorney who listens to what you say and provides insight and guidance for your problem. Nick is extremely patient and will fight hard for you. He will also tell you the truth whether you have a case or not so you do not waste your money. Hard to find honesty nowadays.

Nick was very helpful when I needed assistance dissolving an LLC. Not only did he create the appropriate documentation, but he educated me on the process. His guidance was invaluable, and everything resolved smoothly. I would certainly use his services again in the future.

My family cannot thank Nick enough. We needed a business litigation attorney for a lawsuit that was going to trial, he not only took the time to understand the complexities of the case but was able to convey that to the judge. He was able to get us amazing results. Hands down the best attorney we have ever worked with.
