We have been silently working in the background once again to bring you some absolutely amazing news. Your Fort Wayne Indoor has hooked up a 1 year-long partnership with Harley Davidson of Fort Wayne (HDFW). Ryan Mitchell and his team of radical folks have taken the time to re-invest their efforts directly back into our community. We have an entire year of activities planned with HDFW and we are going to bring the noise to Fort Wayne Indiana! We are beyond pumped to have HDFW on board as a Primary sponsor of all the events we through through-out a calendar year. We will also be onsite at HDFW for a few of their crazy parking lot parties!
Our 1st order of business is to send two patrons of the FWI straight to Minneapolis, MN to observe the X-Games for 4 days and 3 nights. Harley Davidson of Fort Wayne is picking up the tab for 1 Skateboarder + Parent/Friend & 1 BMX’er + Parent/Friend. HDFW will also be providing some extras to go along with your X-Games Experience! The FWI will be sending Dan Butler & Rich Hoppe along for the ride as well. Dan and Rich have set up some extras as well once on site at the 2018 X-Games!
The criteria and all the details for the X-Games Experience will be released in a few days, until then follow Harley Davidson on all of your social media sites and tell HDFW that they absolutely kick ass!
Over the next few days we will have all the information on how YOU can win a trip to this years X-Games, brought to you by Harley Davidson of Fort Wayne #GetStoked

Yes indeed folks, it’s back to that time of the year when you can smell the gun smoke in the air. Time to put on those big boy pants and get to The Battle for Midwest BMX for all the fame and glory! (Actually a trophy and a bunch of great memories) The Battle Series started five years ago, the idea and concept was to provide something fun for us BMX minded people to do over the winter months. We support local skateparks around the midwest area and we provide a positive and overall great environment for the entire family to come out and enjoy. The battle series is designed 100% around having fun and enjoying the sport that brings all of us so much joy.
The year 2018 will bring us even more fun and good times as we push each other to the next level by competing against one another in the 5th annual Battle for Midwest BMX! I am stoked beyond belief that you all made this possible for the past 4 years and am ready to continue this contest well into the future. I thank each and every one of you who comes out to spend a day with some rowdy ol BMX’ers!
Happy New Year and I cannot wait to see everyone in Fort Wayne, Indiana this Saturday as we kick off 2018 in true BMX style!
Overall Winners from Beginner, Intermediate, & Expert win a free week of camp at Ohio Dreams!

We want to start this update off with a Huge Thank You to all of you amazing Fort Wayne Indoor Supporters. We just wrapped up our 3rd season as the area’s ONLY Indoor BMX & Skate facility!
We started out this season with a COMPLETE rebuild. We literally tore down every single ramp in the building, downsized the park by 4,000 sq ft (now 7,000 sq ft) and ended up with an amazingly fun and cool place to ride. Huge thanks to Brian Leonard for spearheading and spending countless hours at the park during the rebuild (props to Aiden & Jaise Jordan also for their non-stop help)
The season started out well as we are super dependent upon the weather. We opened up the 1st week of November and the cash flow helped get us out of last year’s debt for the 1st few months. We reorganized our pricing structure by adding a $10 Yearly Fee to help offset Insurance, Electric, Gas, etc. By the time February hit, so did 70 degrees and of course folks want to be outside enjoying the outdoors. The remainder of the winter was extremely slow in comparison to the 1st few months.
We rely on a mix of cash flow through-out the year. This time of the year we ask for your help to ensure that this unique facility of ours stays open for our community. Because we are a non-for-profit 501(c)3, all of your donated money can be written off on your taxes for 2018. We are 100% Volunteer and 100% committed to keeping the doors open, here in Fort Wayne, IN. We are always working on new ways and efforts to make the park successful.
Please take a few minutes and donate any amount you can afford; every single dollar goes towards a community of amazing individuals.
Rich Hoppe / Dan Butler and the Entire Fort Wayne Indoors Group of Radical Volunteers.
