About the Ride

Ride Around The Lake is Illawarra’s very own charity recreational cycle that takes annually in May. 2015 is the 7th edition and event date is Saturday May 16. The ride is about ‘breaking the cycle’ of homeless youth, by raising awareness and funds for Lighthouse Youth Initiative.

Hundreds take part, with a safe scenic course based on participation. It is a fun ride the whole family can take part in, not a race.

There is a 40 kilometre circuit that takes in Lake Illawarra, and more than 10 scenic suburbs, and a 10 kilometre cycle path event for younger riders and families.

Open to riders ages 16 and over (14-15 with an accompanying adult) and the Kids family is ride perfect for the little one’s and all the family
