Trek the Trails

Trek The Trails


Join the City of Fort Wayne, the City of New Haven, and Fort Wayne Trails on these family-friendly bike rides. Rides begin at 6:00 pm every Tuesday throughout the summer.  Participants are asked to wear helmets and bring water along for the ride. Most rides are 8-9 miles long. The average speed is 10-12 mph. This is a “no one left behind ride” and all skill levels are welcome! These rides are an awesome way to explore sections of trail you haven’t seen before or just to get out and see some old favorites! We hope that you will join us for a ride.

A “second lap” is offered by our friends at 3 Rivers Velo Sport when they are available, usually 1-2 times a month.

All participants ride at their own risk.

CANCELING RIDES

Severe weather may cancel the event. Check the Fort Wayne Trails Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter at least 1 hour before the ride, if you are unsure.

The City of Fort Wayne has determined that Trek the Trails rides will be canceled if there is a Heat Advisory as issued by the National Weather Service.

2022 Trek The Trails shirts will be available at the rides and our offices for a $20 donation to Fort Wayne Trails.

Please register here if you’d like to attend. This will assist us in providing improved communication with you, track how many people we might see at each event, and provide a way for you to give us anonymous feedback about your Trek the Trails experience and ideas about trail development.  All riders can “sign-in” at each ride for an additional chance to win a bike from Trek Bikes Fort Wayne at the end of the season. You only need to register online one time per season.
