Event: Good Morning Star Shine- August 2
Perhaps the prettiest place to find yourself in all of Erie is to find yourself on Presque Isle peninsula during a summer sunrise. Daybreak at Presque Isle is so spectacular that Lake Erie Cyclefest decided to add a sunrise tour of Presque Isle State Park. And who better to guide the tour than Good Morning Erie's Traci Teudhope!

Event: YMCA's Jelly Jar Ride- August 3
The Jelly Jar bicycle tour is a generally flat ride with some rolling hills and occasional short but steeper roller coaster dips and climbs. Riders will set out from the lakefront park of Shade's Beach in Harborcreek, PA on the shore of Lake Erie onto quiet and largely shaded roads meandering through thousands of acres of orchards, farms and vineyards including the vineyards of Mazza Winery which will be open for visits and complimentary sampling. Then you'll roll into the town of North East, PA known as "The Heart of Grape Country." Gibson Park, in the center of town, will offer juices and snacks courtesy of Welch's Foods. Spectacular views of Lake Erie will be along the last leg of the return ride to Shade's Beach where festivities will include a picnic lunch, Lim Wit Radler beer courtesy of Five & 20 Spirits & Brewing and samples of Mazza wines, courtesy of Mazza Winery.

Riders have the choice of a 27 or 52 mile non-competitive ride. Riders may add an optional loop around Findley Lake, NY to the 52 mile ride to take the total mileage to 57 miles.

Our thanks to Hertel & Brown Physical Therapy for providing pre-and post-race support to our riders. Sarah Bailey, DPT, Cert. MDT and Phi Sorenson, DPT, will provide taping and stretching for all participants from 7:15 a.m. to 9 a.m. and then return at 10:30 a.m. for any post-race needs.

Event: WQLN’S Alley Cat Ride-August 5
This is Lake Erie Cyclefest's only bike race. Alley Cat Bike races are fun adventure-bike rides for cyclists of all abilities. Lake Erie Cyclefest's Alley Cat is a scavenger hunt around and through Erie's downtown neighborhoods. Winners are often the most clever not necessarily the most speedy. This year's race will begin at Frontier Park's Educational Center. Riders will be given lanyards to wear around their necks. The lanyards have drawings of what riders need to find and a list of clues. The first three riders to return to Frontier Park will win fabulous prizes. The ride will end with a beer sampling from Five & 20 Spirits & Brewing and the Jazzy portion of Erie's Jazz and Blues Fest. The ride begins Frontier Park’s Education Pavilion, 1501 West 6th Street, Erie, PA 16505. $15 registration
