Winter Solstice
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.


Chilly Challenge

3 Rivers Velo Sport Chilly Challenge

Saturday, January 1st, 1:00 p.m.

Shoaff Park River Lodge

Start the New Year with a chilly (chili) and challenging cycling adventure! The ride on city streets and Greenway paths “fits most” with distance options from 5 to 20 miles.

We will depart from the Shoaff Park River Lodge promptly at 1PM. Our longer route will include a mid-ride stop at Johnny Appleseed Park to watch the polar bear swimmers plunge into the river. A small snack will be provided before heading back to the river lodge. All routes will return to the lodge for a steaming bowl of chili to help you warm up and tasty accompaniments to entice your tastebuds. All food items are provided by the Three Rivers Velo Sport club members.

Allow ample time before the ride starts to unload your bike/s, sign a waiver form and “gear up” for a winter ride. HELMETS ARE REQUIRED to participate in this event. Route maps will be provided at the ride. For more information about the ride please visit the 3RVS bike club’s website at www.3rvs.com.

This FREE program is co-sponsored by the Three Rivers Velo Sport (3RVS) bicycling club and the Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation Department. Donations however are always welcome and appreciated.

Mid-Block Crossings can be confusing for everyone.  Watch this video to learn more about how to safely navigate a trail crossing where you are crossing the street in the middle of the block, rather than at an intersection.  

When traveling on city streets, bicycles have the same duties and rights as motorists.  Know and practice the rules of the road.
