Riders who register from 3rd March 2017, will need to collect their Rider Bibs at their nominated starting point – Speers Point, Morisset or Belmont, as we cannot be assured of delivery to you in time, due to Australia Post Standard mail delivery schedules.

Please bring with you a copy of your registration  receipt or Drivers License ID.

Welcome to Loop the Lake – 12th March 2017

Loop the Lake is going into its 20th year. While it has grown a reputation as one of the popular Charity Bike Rides in NSW, and raised over $1 million for charity, we still look to improve the event.

For 2017 we have introduced a 7km Family Charity Ride. It is on the shared pathway, right on the lake edge, between Speers Point and Warners Bay.

We have also increased the course safety by taking the ride through Wyee and excluding the Rutleys Rd section.

There is a choice of distances from 90km, 55km and 13km.
There are morning tea, fruit stops, water and toilets available at varying points around the course. When you finish at Speers Point every rider is provided Lunch and free entry to Speers Point Pool

The Ride is conducted by the Rotary Club of Warners Bay, under the approval of Lake Macquarie Council and the NSW Police. We have support vehicles patrolling the course throughout the ride to ensure all riders are safe, and given assistance where necessary.

In March 2016, the rules for bike riders using public roads changed. You can view the new rules by clicking here.
