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.

If you are able, please support my fundraising efforts with a donation. There is no minimum donation. All donations are tax deductible (you can print a receipt after your donation). Also, please spread the word so that others can support this great cause!

Long Bike Ride

It’s the little things in life that mean so much…like a 4 hour bike adventure with my husband. I love riding my bike. I love riding my bike with my husband even more. Yesterday we took a 30 mile bike ride exploring the local horse farms, Legacy Trail and then had lunch at a cute little market in downtown Lexington before heading back home. Here’s some pictures I took along the way:

I am horribly allergic to horses but they are so beautiful. I wish I could spend more time around them. I love this kind of horse…the ones with the spots. I always name them “Speckles”. 🙂 So there’s about 9542974 horses named Speckles around here in Lexington. haha

More beautiful horses!

Isn’t this a beautiful country road? I love it! So peaceful!
