Hancock Flat 50
The Hancock Flat 50 is a community bicycle ride and festival event held every August for cyclists of all skill levels to promote wellness and personal connections throughout Hancock County. Since the inaugural ride in 2016, numbers have nearly tripled in size.
Proceeds from participants are used to enhance Hancock County Trails and encourage continued interest in cycling and healthy activities. Since its inception in 2016, the Flat 50 has donated $28,000 to projects like extending trails and increasing signage for biker safety.
Whether you are an experienced cycling enthusiast or looking for a more leisurely ride with friends, you’ll find that the party is just getting started when you finish your ride. The Hancock Flat 50 post-ride festival is full of live music, delicious food, and a chance to get to know your neighbors and enjoy the local community.
2021 HANCOCK FLAT 50
Unfortunately, the 2020 Flat 50 cycling event was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. But we’re already planning for our 2021 event, scheduled to take place on August 28, 2021.

Hancock County Trails Plan
Curious to learn more about Hancock County’s trail system? In 2018 the Hancock County Trails Plan was adopted. It is a county-wide trails plan to help improve non-motorized accessibility, promote safety for bicyclists and pedestrians, and make the communities of Greenfield, Cumberland, New Palestine, McCordsville, Fortville, Shirley, and Wilkinson more enjoyable places to live and visit.
The plan is a vision of what the trail network might look like in 25 to 30 years. The plan is not “set in stone” and is reviewed periodically, as development occurs throughout the county.
Currently, there are many miles of trails in Hancock County and growing!
