Nancy’s Ride

Freewheelin’ Community Bikes will host its signature event, Nancy’s Ride, on Labor Day, Monday, September 7, 2020 , starting and ending in the heart of the Mapleton Fall Creek neighborhood at 34th and Central Avenue.  

What is Nancy’s Ride?

Nancy’s Ride is a welcoming, inclusive ride for all cyclists with the goal of sharing Freewheelin’s love of, and support of, youth cycling. This year, the rides will consist of three circuits, each of about 30 miles, that will start at and return to our Freewheelin’ Community Bikes shop, where you can take a break, use the facilities, and have a snack.  

The first circuit (32.5 miles)  will take riders out to the east into beautiful Ft. Benjamin Harrison State Park. 

The second circuit (approximately 30 miles) will take riders on a tour of’ urban neighborhoods including the following Great Places: 
  • Maple Crossing,  near our Freewheelin home in the Mapleton Fall Creek neighborhood
  • King Commons, west of the IUPUI campus 
  • River West, near the Historic Flanner House 
  • Twin Aire, on the southeast side of Indianapolis where there is much under development
  • Englewood Villages, on the Near East Side. 
The final circuit (approximately 38 miles) will involve cycling to the northwest side of Indianapolis. 

Destination Ride

The family-oriented Destination Ride (10K, or 6.2 miles) will start later in the morning and will follow the planed Neighbor Ways routes that the city will be building soon.  Stops will include one Great Place and other unique attractions. 

After the ride, join us for music, a meal (included in the Price of the ticket) and adults can enjoy a beer!

We will follow COVID-19 guidelines in effect at the time of the event. If “Stay at Home” orders are in place, the event will be cancelled. Virtual rides may be offered as an alternative.

Prepare with us!

To prepare for these rides, Freewheelin’ will offer every Saturday morning Community Rides and Century Training Rides  all summer long. These rides will be led by experienced guides. If you need a bike, new fleet bikes are available for use at no cost.  These rides will follow segments of the actual planned rides. 

For a good cause

All ride proceeds will benefit Freewheelin’ Community Bikes, a 501(c)3 youth development organization that connects youth with skills for life over a shared passion for the bicycle.
