Go Bikes!

This is Fort Wayne's first bike summit organized by the City of Fort Wayne. Here we learned about the city's work to make bicycling more safe in the community, and received input about what participants thought could make the community more bike friendly.

This is a great day! Fort Wayne has a very conservative history, but recent years have proven otherwise with an $84 million library expansion project (this room is in the new library) and an expanding Greenway along the 3 rivers. Here we learned about what other communities in other countries and here in Indiana are doing to make bicycling safer, and to make the city more accessible to bikes. I came away with an armful of literature, plus a new membership in a local bike trails organization.
