Time to saddle up folks..

Ride Around the Lake is the Illawarra’s own recreational Cycle for Charity and your invited!

This year will be the 7th edition of the ride and will be held on Saturday, 7 May 2016. The ride is about ‘breaking the cycle’ of youth at risk of homelessness, by raising awareness and funds for the Lighthouse Youth Initiative.
We challenge you to help us ‘break the cycle’, pledge to fund raise, and ride around the lake. Every dollar counts and why not kick it off with a donation to yourself and invite friends and businesses to sponsor you..

The ride is based on fun and participation, non competitive and a great family day out. Hundreds take part on a safe scenic course that is fully supported by services as traffic controllers, 60+ course marshals, first aid, refreshments, course signage and loads of activities and food options that wait you at the finish- plus the thrill and fun of “Riding Around The Lake’!
