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.

All participants ride at their own risk.


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.


We are working with the YMCA and Turnstone to make Trek the Trails accessible to all. Based on your needs you may be able to use an adaptive bike or take advantage of the Y’s Buddy Bike program. Simply fill out the form at the link and the proper group will be in touch with you!

2024 Trek The Trails shirt pre-order is now closed. They will still be available at any of our Trek the Trails events.

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 drawing at the end of the season. You only need to register online one time per season.

This year our friends at “Bike Fort Wayne on Facebook” will be giving away two lovely used bikes to participants. Once you register, you can check in each week for and entry into the drawing at the end of the season. We will do two drawings,  one for each bike.  The standard road bike is a 58cm Cannondale R600 road bike with 2 water bottle cages and a cycling computer. It will come with flat platform pedals. The Step Thru bike is an XS Specialized Crossroads Sport Hybrid with water bottle cage, bottle, and rear rack.
