Home to the cycloFox (resident red fox often see during cyclocross events) Historic Fort Wayne is a must-see. It is also conveniently located near some of the best authentic Mexican food you will find in Michigan, which you will need after exploring the site.
Corktown recently got some brand new bike lanes as part of a program funded by the Kresge Foundation. Along the path you'll also find brand new bike racks at some great places to check out and/or eat and have a drink at (they're not all in yet, but on their way). This is a bike tour of the places with racks (or soon-to-be racks :-)).
