Loop the Lake is Clean Lakes Alliance's annual bike ride around Lake Monona that highlights our community’s lakes and lakeshore bike paths. In 2016, more than 600 riders participated, our biggest and most visible ride yet! Event proceeds support our ongoing lake improvement and protection efforts.

Participants will ride along the scenic Lake Loop route through Madison and Monona. Riders will travel 12 miles clockwise around Lake Monona, starting and ending at Olbrich Park. Most recreational bikers will finish in about 1 hour and 15 minutes and the course will remain open until 2 p.m.

Be sure to stop for complimentary checkpoints along the route, including water and beverages, ice cream treats for the kids and other surprises. After the ride, riders can grab a free beverage and lunch item at the after-party with Paddle & Portage and Shoreline Swim participants. 

TEAM CHALLENGE: Build a team of ten or more riders and you could win $1,000 in gift cards - read more below.
