News release from the City of Fort Wayne:
Trek the Trail series continues with bike give-away
Coca-Cola sponsors Tuesday, July 31st trail ride and bike raffle
This week’s Tuesday Trek the Trail ride offers residents scenic views, a guided tour and a chance to win a custom-made Coca-Cola bicycle. The Coca-Cola-sponsored ride and bike raffle was initially scheduled for earlier this month, but was postponed due to inclement weather.
Coca-Cola has stepped forward to sponsor the Trek the Trail ride from Foster Park to Tillman Park and back by providing refreshments and a chance to win a custom-made bicycle. Raffle tickets will be handed out at the start of the ride and a name will be drawn at the end of the ride. The winner will take home the 26-inch dual suspension Coca-Cola bicycle.
Riders will meet at the Foster Park trailhead parking lot at 3900 Old Mill Road, which is located at the end of the main park drive, near Pavilion #1. Participants should arrive at 5:30 p.m., in order to register for the bike raffle; riders are asked to wear helmets. The ride will kick-off at 6 p.m.
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.
