About the Ride

Participants will ride along the scenic Lake Loop through Madison and Monona. Riders will travel 13.5 miles clockwise around Lake Monona, starting and ending at Olbrich Park. The route features family-friendly stops with water and treats.

Loop the Lake is not just a bike ride – it’s a community day to rally around our lakes!

Most recreational bikers will finish in about 1 hour and 15 minutes. The course will remain open until 2 p.m.


Registration is $35 per rider or FREE for riders ages 10 and under. Each rider will receive an event t-shirt, a picnic lunch, and a beverage (beer available for ages 21 and up). Best of all, your registration supports work to protect and improve water quality in our lakes.

Unfortunately, we will be unable to refund tickets sales in the event of a cancellation due to weather.
