Bike Trek to Shakertown

As you’ll see on in my “Things I want to do” post, I have been wanting to visit Shaker Village for some time. It’s a gorgeous little Shaker community here in Kentucky. Two of my other goals is to be more fit and to do more for charity this year.  So….how do you combine all three things? With the Bike Trek to Shakertown, of course!

This event is a 2-3 day (I’m doing the 3 day) cycling event in which we bike 30-60 miles daily. I’ll be training for this event all season this year. Actually, we’ve (my husband and I) already been doing some longer bike rides to prepare for it though it’s freezing cold here in Kentucky this time of year.

The Bike Trek to Shakertown event raises money for the American Lung Association. I have a cousin (by marriage) who has cystic fibrosis and had a double lung transplant in 2008. Unfortunately she is have problems rejecting the transplanting lungs and is currently awaiting an 2nd lung transplantion. I will be riding in her honor for the Shakertown event. Please send healing thoughts her way.
