Tuesdays at 6:00 p.m. from the beginning of May until the end of September. These are free, community rides on various sections of the Fort Wayne Trails Network. Each ride is typically 6-9 miles long. This is a great way to learn about the trail network and how the trails connect. The rides are led by a City of Fort Wayne or Fort Wayne Trails, Inc representative, as well as with additional help from volunteers to help guide everyone. A mechanic with Summit City Bicycles & Fitness is also on hand to help with minor mechanical issues that might occur during the ride.
Fort Wayne has one of the finest trail systems in the Midwest with more than 85 miles of trail winding through the city. Join local trail users for weekly bike rides this spring to experience Fort Wayne in a whole new way. You’ll love reconnecting with nature along the linear parkways of the Rivergreenway or learning the history of the Wabash & Erie Canal along the Towpath Trail or enjoying the many miles of new trails throughout the Greater Fort Wayne area. Load up your family and bikes and join the fun! Participants are asked to wear helmets and bring water along for the ride. All participants ride at their own risk. Tuesday rides will continue through the summer.

With 85 miles of trails in the greater Fort Wayne area, there are many miles of trails to explore! Are you interested in riding further and exploring more of our trails? Join us on the third Saturday of each month at 10AM this summer for longer trail ride excursions! We will start with a 14-mile trail ride in June and gradually build up to 18 miles in September. After each ride, we’ll pedal over to a local restaurant for an early lunch. Participants are asked to wear helmets and bring water and a snack in order to be sustained during each ride! All participants ride at their own risk. These longer trail rides are intended for intermediate bicyclists. Please be ready to ride at 10AM.
