Trek the Trails Kickoff

Trek the Trails Kickoff

April 28th, 6:00pm

Children biking on Towpath

** Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic we will sadly be postponing the 2020 Trek The Trails Kick-off. As much as we would love to see all of you and go for ride together, we will have to wait. The plan is to still have a kick-off party once large gatherings are deemed safe. Other rides will likely be canceled as well and we will keep everyone updated to any changes as they come.

We will be kicking off the 2020 Trek the Trails rides on April 28th at 6:00pm with a bike ride beginning at the Towpath Trailhead at Engle Road and ending at the Eagle Marsh Barn.

Join us after the ride in the Eagle Marsh Barn for a casual meal, drinks, and music to celebrate spring, cycling, and all things trails! Cost for the celebration is $10 per person, $20 per family. Cash bar. Catering generously provided by Halls.

Trek the Trails Rides:

Join the City of Fort Wayne and Fort Wayne Trails on these family-friendly bike rides. Rides begin at 6:00pm 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. Average speed is 10-12 mph. This is a “no one left behind ride” and families are welcome. A second lap is offered most evenings for those who would like to ride a longer distance at this easy pace. Summit City Bicycles and Fitness, our program sponsor, provides staff who can help out if your bike needs a minor repair.

All participants ride at their own risk. Have a chance to win a new bike, courtesy of Summit City Bicycles and Fitness at the end of the season, by pre-registering at no cost!
