Summit City Bicycles and Fitness steps up to sponsor this week’s ride
The City of Fort Wayne is reminding residents that the next Trek the Trail ride of 2012 will take place today at 6 p.m., along the Towpath Trail. Participants should park in the main parking lot of Rockhill Park, off Catalpa Street.

Mayor Tom Henry has praised the free community bike rides for providing a great forum for citizens to get together with family and friends, while participating in a healthy activity.
Participating cyclists are asked to meet at the start of the 6 p.m. rides no later than 5:45 p.m. and are required to wear helmets. And, since temperatures are expected to be in the high 90s, with a heat index near 100, riders should wear light clothing and bring plenty of fluids.
If there is unsafe weather — such as lightning or extreme heat — the ride will be cancelled. A cancellation notice will be posted at.
The City is hosting its third season of Trek the Trails – a popular series of free, guided community bike rides along 68 miles of trail network. Trek the Trails — which runs from May through September — features a series of 22 Tuesday evening rides, four Saturday rides and a stargazing bike ride in October.
