YMCA Trail Buddies

YMCA Trail Buddies Calendar-JORGENSEN

Welcome to Trail Buddies of the YMCA of Greater Fort Wayne! Trail Buddies invites people who have a disability and are unable to pedal a bike the chance to ride a trail around the Jorgensen Family YMCA, located at 10313 Aboite Center Road.  Our meeting place is on the far west side of the building at the entrance to the pool.

This free and inclusive program allows a child or adult to go for a ride on a specialized bike. Check out the bike here-http://www.frankmobility.com/duet 

The rider will be pedaled by our trained volunteer.  We also have a safety, who will ride along to ensure everyone is having a safe experience.  Rides are typically 30-45 minutes long. 

We want this program to be inclusive, so friends or family who have a bike are welcome to come along! Scroll down to schedule your ride!
