Fort-4-Fitness Spring Cycle

With cycling close to my heart and as a participant since its induction, I have to let you know about this wonderful, fun, family event.  The Fort-4-Fitness Spring Cycle  event promotes fitness for any fitness level from the casual to the serious cyclist. Two and half years ago on 1/1/2012, I chose to start my ‘get healthy’ journey.  It was quite the struggle but by time the 1st annual Spring Cycle had come along, I had lost over 20 pounds!  I was so excited to hear about Fort-4-Fitness’s cycling event that I decided to go out and get a special attachment for my bike so that my 3 year old could ride with my 11 year old and me.  We biked from our home through downtown to the event and then rode on the family 3 mile tour through downtown Fort Wayne.  It was so exhilarating and afterwards the weather was warm enough that my kids played at the Headwaters splash pad.  At the end of the day we still had the long ride back home again.  It was a long, exciting day! During the event, my kids and I met Johnny Tincap, had pictures taken, saw some awesome places downtown that we revisited,  and received T-shirts and a sling bag that had some awesome treats for us after our ride was over.  Our picture ended up in the newspaper the next day and we were on almost every page of the flyer for the next year! The following year we had to do the Spring Cycle again!  This time it was bigger, better and had lots more!  On top of everything we were able to do the first year, there were vendors, food trucks, the Barr Street Market and LOTS more people! Because of events like this in the Summit City, I have been able to lose an additional 37 pounds and have been able to keep it off!  I am healthier and better because of it! So come on down and either start your journey or continue your journey!  Just enjoy a wonderful day’s worth of activities at the Fort-4-Fitness Spring Cycle event on May 17, 2014!  Take one of the tours (18, 33 or 43 , miles) or come on down with the family for the free ‘Kickstart...
