Since 2009, the City has installed over 225 bike racks around Fort Wayne. These bike racks are purchased using federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality funds and are provided to local businesses free of charge. We prefer to install racks at businesses within 1/4 mile of trails and bike lanes, but will make exceptions if there is evidence of bike use. Businesses must be located in the City of Fort Wayne. Racks need to be installed in concrete and have adequate spacing around them, generally 2—3 feet.
If you are a business owner that would like to request a bike rack, please call 311.
In 2014, IPFW installed 50 sculptural bike racks throughout the City of Fort Wayne. You can always tell which sculptures double as bike racks by looking for a plaque on the ground. For more information, click here.
