Loop the Lake is Clean Lakes Alliance's annual bike ride around Lake Monona that highlights our community’s lakes and lakeshore bike paths. Event proceeds support our ongoing lake improvement and protection efforts. We're expecting more than 700 riders and we hope you will join us for our sixth annual ride!

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.

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

  • Complimentary grilled brat, hamburger, veggie burger or hot dog lunch thanks to Woodman's Markets
  • FREE cold drink, including beer for ages 21 and up.
