Memorial Day - Bike Lexington

On a mission to enjoy everything Lexington has to offer!

After searching for bike routes around town we came across 'Bike Lexington' which is a 10 mile family fun bike ride around downtown Lexington and UK's campus. We really didn't know what the day would have to offer but soon enough we would. Over 1000 bike riders came out to enjoy the ride. People of all ages, look at this little guy. He just kept peddling. How cute :D

The weather started out beautiful but the Lord had other plans. Just at around mile 8 it started to down pour. At first I wasn't to fond of the idea of getting wet but after a little while I started to enjoy it. Some times in life you just need to dance in the rain and laugh, we well just danced with bikes!

This was Lara's first long distance ride and she did great finishing 16 miles with no problem! The rain didn't even get in her way at all!

What a ride and what a way to enjoy Memorial Day. The Lord is truly blessing us with health and the ability to explore his creation. May the Lord continue to strengthen us and allow our bodies to be his temples.

Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own. ~1 Corinthian 6:19
