About Loop the Lake
Loop the Lake is an annual bike ride around Lake Monona to highlight our community’s lakeshore bike paths and to support CLA’s lake improvement and protection efforts. The ride occurs the morning of the Clean Lakes Festival and finishes at the festival grounds. The first annual ride in 2013 established the official Lake Loop Scenic Bike Route, which offers resident cyclists a permanent, alternative scenic bike route through Madison and Monona.
