First Year in the County!

Kate and I are officially country gals

A year ago Kate and I set off on a big new adventure. We packed up our belongings, gave away and threw away a bunch of items in the process and moved from our cute little city “town” of Broad Ripple in the heart of Indianapolis, to Brown County, Indiana. One of my biggest fears was not being able to get my groceries delivered, turns out where we live we can’t even get a pizza delivered! We actually really enjoy it though, Kate and I cook much more at home now baby Asher starting to “eat” with us now too!

I will admit, we have discovered Home Chef and that has really come in handy! We got some meals as a gift when Asher came – great gift by the way! We’ve continued ordering from them and it’s been really nice having a few meals a week that we know we already have all the ingredients for, it’s healthy and delicious!

Bean night

Since we’ve been down here Kate has started her weekly Trek Tribe Bicycle ride in Brown County State Park. Look for an update on the time and date for the winter season! Kate also started the first Brown County youth mountain bike team through NICA – National Interscholastic Cycling Association and it was super fun! I was able to make a few of the practices with Asher and we had a blast. I am looking forward to being more involved next year and for the kids to get to race other teams across the state as well. Check out the video below from the last practice – Kate let the group jump her! This was definitely one of the highlights of the season!

Brown County Eagles NICA Team

Kate and I started doing events at Hard Truth Hills, which has been super fun! Kate led a series of co-ed mini Busted Knuckle mountain bike clinics and I am still teaching monthly yoga sessions. We’ve had great weather all summer and are looking forward to continuing to practice this fall and winter inside the distillery!

Kate and I joined the Halloween Town Committee part of the Brown County Visitor’s Bureau Board and are looking forward to the inaugural Halloween Town event next Saturday October 26th in Nashville, come join us for a haunted bike ride in the parade!

That brings us to today, currently we are continuing to improve, grow and work on going into the 5th season of hosting the Women’s Adventure Giveaway. This program is so near and dear to our hearts, we are so fortunate and grateful we get to offer this amazing experience to very lucky and deserving women each year. We are in the process of working with a production company to produce a documentary series to follow the winners of the 2020 Giveaway and stream their stories worldwide next year. We feel it’s important to keep documenting the experience to inspire people all over the world to live a life filled with adventure and ask the question, “when was the last time you did something for the first time?” If you or a company you know would be interested in partnering or learning more about the Women’s Adventure Giveaway please let me know!

Women’s Adventure Giveaway

Looking back at everything Kate and I have done this year and not just in Brown County but we’ve also traveled with DNK Presents to North Carolina, Arizona, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee and we’re getting ready to head to Virginia. We have really learned and grown a lot but our biggest accomplishment of the year would definitely be growing our family and raising our beautiful baby boy Asher! He brings an immense amount of much joy, love and light to us each and every day, we are so blessed to have him and we hope you get to meet him sometime soon.

Having fun on the Salt Creek Trail

Have you visited us in Brown County yet? Please let us know when you’re coming to town, we’d love to meet up with you on the trail, over a beer or share with you our favorite places to check out! Now that we’re country folk now I can officially say, Happy Fall Ya’ll and Happy Trails!

P.S. Did you know you can stream our award winning film, “Live Adventurously” on You Tube and Vimeo now? Check it out!

About Bike Party:
BikeParty Indianapolis is a mobile party for anybody who loves being on a bike. All ages, types of riders, and experience levels are welcome! The mission is to build community through bicycling and encourage a safe and cooperative roadway environment for all users. The rides are around 7-11 miles, are a slower pace, and include several stops called “Regroups” along the route to party, dance, and mingle. Each route will be different, and will be posted ahead of time along with the stop locations. There may or may not be an after-party venue.

HOW WE RIDE:
-Follow the ride leader (with BP flag) or ride volunteers, they will be spread throughout the group to help direct when the group is split up.
-Stop at all red lights and stop signs (and dance!)
-Volunteers will not hold or stop traffic.
-Stay behind cars at redlights and yield to pedestrians.
-Avoid yelling things like “clear” at intersections, it’s critical everyone is responsible for their own safety.
-Ride straight until the ride volunteers tell you to turn.
-Stick to the right lane(unless turning left)
-Roll past conflict, do not engage.
-Do not be a danger to yourself or others.
