When Lake Erie Cyclefest began back in the summer of 2017, its mission was a simple equation of good health, community and business through cycling. Over the last four years, that equation has served us well. Lake Erie Cyclefest, has encouraged thousands and thousands of people - all ages, shapes and sizes - to ride their bicycles to and around all corners of Erie County.
This summer, Lake Erie Cyclefest’s healthy mission is being challenged by an unprecedented health crisis which has caused a mandated Erie County cancellation of every event this summer.
So - we’re taking an adventurous detour and growing Lake Erie Cyclefest from four days to 62 days, offering rolling registrations, memorable merch and best of all, good health through cycling.
These self-contained bicycling adventures benefit the important work of three local nonprofits and their community relief efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic. These nonprofits showed up for the Erie community in B-I-G ways from supporting local students through connectivity to classroom learning, to first responders providing for the critical healthcare needs of the region, and supporting families with essentials like childcare and food.
Before You Begin Health & Safety
As three community centered nonprofits, we’re here to help you focus on what matters most: your health, your family and friends, and your community. Your health and safety is very important to us.
