Trek the Trails --2018

 Our 2018 Trek the Trails Rides begin on May 1, at the Towpath Trailhead.

Join Fort Wayne Trails and the City of Fort Wayne on these family-friendly bike rides.  These are generally 6-9 miles in length, and are mostly on the trails, with some road riding and crossings. All rides begin at 6:00pm.

Participants are asked to wear helmets and bring water along for the ride. Summit City Bicycles and Fitness is a major sponsor for this program, and James Holm joins us each week with his magical fix-it kit.

All participants ride at their own risk. Activities will continue through the summer. 

Save time and increase your chances to win a bicycle at the end of the season (courtesy of Summit City Bicycles and Fitness)  by pre-registering Here (no cost).

Fort Wayne Trails offers a “2nd Lap” ride, each week after we return to our starting point, doubling the distance to 12-18 miles. This is a 10-12 MPH “E”-paced ride, with no one left behind.
