Bike to the 500

For several years, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Bike Indianapolis have collaborated to offer race fans a safe and healthy commute to the Speedway on Race Day through Bike to the 500. New this year, the Race Day commute starts at the AMP at 16 Tech and follows a police escort to the racetrack, where cyclists will then park outside the famed Gate 1. This year, Bike to the 500 is expanding to allow for bike parking at IMS all month long. This is as close as it gets to all of Race Day’s most exciting action!


Guests will be dropped off and picked up at the corner of 10th & Polco on Indy 500 Race Day. All other days of the Month of May, drop off and pickup is in Lot 3P.


Guests who choose to use a taxi to be transported to and from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway will be dropped off at the corner of 10th St & Polco St. Guests can only be picked up at this location at the conclusion of the race.

Bicycle Parking

Guests will be able to park bicycles outside Gates 1, 6 and 9.
