The heat index didn't keep the bicycle "parade" riders from Rediscovering Louisa on Sunday! Almost 35 participants were on hand between the bicyclists, walkers and the water warriors according to Cathi Kise Wells, co-organizer of the event. Kids and adults came with bikes decorated in red, white and blue to kick off the Independence Day week celebration!

The ride was shortened to only about a mile and a half according to Wes Kingsmore, co-organizer due to the extreme temperatures.

"We were happy to see such a great showing but we wanted to make sure that no one overheated," Kingsmore said.

Once the community bike ride was completed, a new "competition" ride was held at Main Street Park. The "Slow Bike Race" had 12 entries with Ms. Amberly Haynes beating out Wes Kingsmore as the Slowest Bike Rider in Lawrence County!

More photos and videos of the Bike Ride can be seen on the Louisa/Lawrence County Trail Town Committee Facebook Page.

The next Community Bike Ride is scheduled for the first Sunday in August which will be Aug. 5th!

The next Trail Town event will be held this next Sunday, July 8th at the beach area at the county's primitive campground area on Yatesville Lake.

This will be a 'Yak and Hike' event. The event will begin at 3 pm and will include both kayaking and hiking on one of the trails in the campground. All Trail Town events are family oriented and free (if you have the equipment).
