Chilly Challenge 2024

Start the new year with a chilly (chili) and challenging cycling adventure! The ride on city streets and greenway paths “fits most” with distance options from 5 to 20 miles. The ride departs from the Pso Ote Pavilion promptly at 1:00 p.m. Allow ample time before the ride starts to unload your bike/s, sign a waiver form and “gear up” for a winter ride. The longer route will include a mid-ride stop at Johnny Appleseed Park to watch the polar bear swimmers plunge into the river and a small snack will be provided before heading back to Shoaff Park.
All routes will return to the lodge for a steaming bowl of chili and tasty accompaniments to warm you up and entice your taste buds. All food items are donated by the Three Rivers Velo Sport club members. HELMETS ARE REQUIRED to participate in this event. Route maps will be provided at the ride.
For more information about the ride please visit the 3RVS bike club’s website at The Chilly Challenge is co-sponsored by the Three Rivers Velo Sport (3RVS) bicycling club and the Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation Department and is FREE and open to all ages. Donations to the Velo Sport Club are graciously accepted and much appreciated.
