Welcome to the Summit City Cycling Challenge, formerly operating as the Three Rivers Festival Tour. New name, same great riding.

You'll be able to sign in for the ride and pick up your registration packet on Friday, July 22 from 1:00 PM to 6:00 PM at the Allen County Main Library plaza in the heart of downtown Fort Wayne.

After the packet pickup, join us for a short and fun City Trails ride from the library plaza starting at 6:30 and exploring portions of the extensive paved bicycle trail system in and around Fort Wayne. The City Trails ride is complimentary with any gravel or road ride registration. If you prefer to do only the City Trails ride, we ask for a nominal fee for your participation.

The Saturday road ride starts at the Sweetwater Performance Pavilion with a mass start at 8:00 AM. The road ride features (4) route lengths: 20, 40 , 62 and 100 miles on rolling countryside lanes through Allen and Whitley counties with multiple opportunities for SAG stops along the way. We'll have a celebration when you return to the pavilion with ice cream and music - where you can swap stories (true or not so true) with your friends and fellow cyclists about the ride.

The Sunday Dustbuster gravel ride will start at the St. Joe Valley Conservation Club in Dekalb county and will take you on an exciting excursion on paved and gravel roads throughout the county with options of 20 & 40 mile routes. You kick up the dust on the ride and we'll sweep the route behind you.

Both the gravel and road rides will include maps and GPS routing, food, snacks, hydration and, most importantly - TONS of CYCLING FUN!
