Bike to the Brickyard

Volunteers from the Speedway Trails Association will be staffing a Pedal & Park corral for the Brickyard 400, just one block south of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway at 1111 Polco Street, Speedway.

The Pedal & Park corral for the Brickyard will be open race day, Sunday (25 July) from 6 a.m. to one hour after the race ends. Parking is free for bicycles, and the lot is secure and supervised. Area law enforcement officers close much of West 10th Street, but bicycles will be allowed to use this route to get to the Pedal & Park corral.

The Pedal & Park program was founded by the Greenways Foundation to encourage use of non-motorized transportation alternatives, promote activity on Indy Greenways, dispense relevant recreational literature, and raise funds for its partnering not-for-profit organizations.

Upcoming Pedal & Park events include; The Indiana State Fair, 6-22 August; Mass Ave Criterium, 14 August; Feast of Lanterns at Spades Park, 28 August; Dig-IN: A Taste of Indiana, 29 August; Penrod Arts Fair, 11 September; Diamond in the Rough, 18 September; Hoosier Outdoor Experience (Ft. Harrison State Park), 18-19 September; Rocky Ripple Arts Festival, 25 September, and the Carmel International Arts Festival, 25-26 September.
