Lake Erie Cyclefest is back for 2021, featuring three days of bicycling across the breathtaking landscapes of Erie County, Pa.

Four distinct rides will guide cyclists of all ages and abilities around Erie's vast terrain - along sandy beaches and through old growth forests, across our vibrant downtown and rolling country hills. 

As always, event proceeds from Lake Erie Cyclefest will benefit local charity. The 2021 beneficiaries are Asbury Woods, Because You Care Inc., Erie Downtown Partnership and Presque Isle Partnership

Lake Erie Cyclefest is presented by Highmark and AHN Saint Vincent Hospital, with additional support from Presque Isle Downs & Casino, VisitErie, WQLN and Engel O'Neill. 

Prices vary, but pre-registration is required for all rides. Registration and more information is available at

The first 200 cyclists to register for two or more rides will receive a Lake Erie Cyclefest sling shoulder bag!
