Walk/Ride & Bonfire
Tuesday, December 21, 4:30 p.m.
Salomon Farm Park, 817 W. Dupont Rd.
On the shortest day, let’s light the night! Bring a flashlight or battery operated lantern and join us on bike or on foot to celebrate the winter solstice. We encourage bikers to light up their bikes for fun, but all bikes are required to have a front white light and a red rear reflector or red rear light. We also encourage riders to be safe and wear a helmet. The 6.5 mile bike ride will begin at 4:45 and the 1.65 mile walk at 5:00. We’ll gather back at the farm afterwards for a bonfire. This free community event is possible sponsored by Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation, City of Fort Wayne Greenways & Trails and Fort Wayne Trails. Follow Salomon farm on Facebook for updates and weather-related cancelations.

When traveling on city streets, bicycles have the same duties and rights as motorists. Know and practice the rules of the road.
Have you wondered about how many people use the trails?
