YMCA Trail Buddies
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 Parkview Family YMCA, located at 10001 Dawsons Creek Blvd. Our meeting place is at the pavilion to the right of the entrance to the YMCA.
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!
