Bike to Work Week is back and the City of Fort Wayne wants you to celebrate.

As part of a national campaign, Bike to Work Week encourages folks to commit to riding to work for the entire week and if you show your helmet at The Dash In or Pembroke Bakery & Cafe before 10 a.m. and you can get a free small coffee. Then, at the end of the week, join other riders at the Bike to Work Week celebration breakfast from 6:30 to 8 a.m. Starbucks coffee, bagels from the Bagel Station and sweet treats from the Pembroke Bakery will be provided, too. If you're more of an evening person, check out Fort Wayne Outfitters and Bike Depot from 5 to 8 p.m. on Friday for food, drinks, live music and more.

Also, don't forget about the Trek the Trails program that invites folks from the community to stop out to a Fort Wayne park to ride. For more information about the program visit www.fwtrails.org.
