The Lake to Lake Bike Ride, presented by Overlake Medical Center, is an annual event in Bellevue in June. The non-competitive ride, designed with families in mind, features three different courses, and benefits the city's youth camp scholarship fund. Video about the ride
In addition to a very short kids ride for ages 8 and under, there is a mostly flat, nine-mile Greenbelt loop, and a more challenging 22-mile Lake Loop with significant elevation gain. Both routes are approximately 80 percent paved road and 20 percent small gravel.
Past participants have ridden these courses on all types of bikes. Riders have told us they prefer a cyclo cross adventure type of bike, with tires that have some traction, or a mountain bike. The event will have a bike mechanic from Gregg's on site at the start to assist with safety checks and minor repairs. All riders must wear helmets.
All participants must obey the rules of the road and trail. Recommended for riders ages 9 and older (Greenbelt Loop). All riders under age 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult on all rides.
