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 6:00pm 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!

THANK YOU TO OUR GENEROUS TREK THE TRAILS SPONSORS!

Pufferbelly Run, Walk, and Stroll Update: To ensure that we can provide a safe and fun event we have made the decision to cap our registration and eliminate day-of registrations. We have a hand full of spaces left and once they are full we will be closing registration. The virtual options will be left open and are a great way to help support the event and Fort Wayne Trails. The virtual events are casual and you are not required to submit a time unless you would like to. We are sorry to anyone who has been inconvenienced by this decision and hope that you understand the reason behind our choice. Thank you for supporting Fort Wayne Trails!

 

Join us for the 11th Annual Pufferbelly Run, Walk, and Stroll, NOW WITH A VIRTUAL OPTION!

We are excited to announce that after careful consideration, we have determined that we can move forward with the 2020 Pufferbelly Run/Walk/Stroll IN-PERSON. While following the Governors guidelines and CDC recommendations, we will still provide a fun and safe event for all of you. Of course, your safety is paramount and as we get closer to July 18th, if we feel we cannot provide you with a rewarding and safe experience we will make any necessary changes. Keep in mind that in addition to a fun morning on the trails, every registration goes directly to supporting trail growth and development right here in our city. We thank you all for using and supporting Fort Wayne Trails.
